Commonly known as Leopard’s Bane and Mountain Tobacco, Arnica montana is a European flowering plant that belongs to the sunflower family. Although its mechanism of action remains largely unknown, health care professionals use Arnica montana as a homeopathic pain relief agent. Many scientists have attributed its effectiveness to the chemicals helenalin and dihydrohelenalin, which may serve patients by boosting immunity, killing bacteria, and reducing inflammation.
Bromelain is an enzyme that occurs naturally in the juice and stem of the pineapple. This enzyme has proven anecdotally successful in the reduction of swelling in the wake of surgery or injury.
