Bromelain is a mixture of enzymes found naturally in the juice and stems of pineapples.Called a proteolytic enzyme, bromelain is believed to help with the digestion of protein. Bromelain is typically extracted from pineapples and made into capsule or tablet form. Because it's able to digest protein, bromelain is available in some grocery stores as a meat tenderizer.
Health Benefits of Bromelain
Bromelain is effective in reducing swelling and inflammation, UMMC reports, as it breaks down fibrin in the blood. Fibrin is a major factor in inflammatory reactions and fluid retention when body tissues are injured or infected.
1. Promote Healthy Digestion
When Bromelain is taken with a meal, it assists with protein digestion. It helps to break down certain proteins that can be difficult for the body to digest in the same way that human digestive enzymes work.
2. Sinusitis (Sinus Inflammation)
As an anti-inflammatory agent, bromelain may help reduce cough and nasal mucus associated with sinusitis.
3. Burns Healing
When applied to the skin, bromelain may be useful in removing dead tissue from burns, a process called debridement. Do not apply bromelain to broken skin.
4. Arthritis (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis)
Bromelain has significant anti-inflammatory activity and may help reduce joint swelling and improve joint mobility. One study suggested that a combination of bromelain, rutin, and trypsin worked very well for reducing knee pain from arthritis.
5. Wound Healing, Sprains and Strains, and Tendinitis
Bromelain is an anti-inflammatory agent and for this reason, it is helpful in reducing swelling, bruising, healing time, and pain after surgery and physical injuries. It is also used to reduce inflammation from tendinitis, sprains and strains, and other minor muscle injuries.
Stem bromelain has abundant therapeutic, industrial and other applications as shown in the following chart.
