Bromelain - One of Natures Best Enzymes

June 01, 2019

If you have ever eaten a sweet and juicy slice of fresh pineapple, you have ingested Bromelain. The simplest definition of it is: a natural enzyme found in the stem and fruit of the pineapple. 

Clinical studies have shown that Bromelain provides an almost unbelievable list of health benefits.

Here is a quick look at the impressive list of reasons that so many people are supplementing their daily diets with Bromelain, which include:

  • Proof that it is beneficial to patients following tissue injury from trauma and surgery;
  • Documentation that it reduces the inflammation after injury and surgery as well as in many rheumatic patients;
  • Evidence that it can reduce the pain of arthritis and limit the risks of osteoarthritis;
  • Documentation that it helps with digestive issues;
  • Proof that it is a blood thinning agent;
  • Scientific evidence that it stimulates the immune system;
  • Proof that it is an effective treatment for sinusitis;
  • Evidence that it helps nursing mothers with engorged breasts;
  • Evidence that it helps cancer patients; and
  • Initial evidence that it can offer such a diverse range of benefits that include muscle stimulation, burn treatment, therapy for sepsis, and much more.

The Bromelain Difference

Where Bromelain really distinguishes itself, however, is that it is a “digestive” enzyme as well as a “systemic” enzyme. This is because it is “absorbed by the body intact, so it’s also thought to have effects outside of the digestive tract”.

This means that it will work as a “digestive” enzyme that creates the chemical reactions necessary to break down proteins into their smallest elements and to facilitate the digestive process as it moves from the stomach and into the small intestine. Bromelain is also going to function as a “systemic” enzyme, which means it passes through the gastrointestinal lining and into the circulatory system. It can act elsewhere from its point of absorption.

This is the reason that Bromelain can claim so many remarkable benefits – it is a serious multi-tasker!
