There have been many studies done on the ingredients of Wobenzym (bromelain, papain, trypsin, chymotrypsin, pancreatin) for their use as an anti-inflammatory treatment. A number of studies have focused on the use of one ingredient-- bromelain-- for the treatment of inflammatory disorders of the musculoskeletal system, such as osteoarthritis.

The results have been promising and found bromelain to be a potential treatment for osteoarthritis. The product Wobenzym contains bromelain among other ingredients and may be helpful for treating inflammation. As Wobenzym has not been evaluated by the US Food and Drug Administration there is a lack of clinical safety and efficacy trials, however, available studies have found the product is well tolerated by most patients.
