How Bromelain from Pineapples aids protein digestion

How Bromelain from Pineapples aids protein digestion | Mr Vitamins
Pineapples are one of the world’s favourite tropical fruits. Their sweet juicy flesh is not only refreshing and mouthwatering but also contains Bromelain, a powerful health-enhancing nutrient.

Potent Enzymes break down protein

Bromelain is a mixture of several enzymes derived from Pineapple (Ananas comosus). These enzymes have a proteolytic action, which means they can break down proteins. This property means it functions very well to aid in the digestion of proteins. Clinically it has also been used successfully in cases of pancreatic digestive enzyme insufficiency.

Bromelain is Anti-inflammatory and reduces Bruising and Swelling

Commonly used for its anti inflammatory properties in soft tissue injury, treatment with bromelain following blunt injuries to soft tissue and muscle results in a reduction in pain, swelling and tenderness. A useful addition to the home first aid kit, it can also speed up the healing time of bruises. Bromelain has also been used for reducing the formation of fibrin, a protein in our blood involved in blood clotting, in situations where excessive blood clotting needs to be reduced. So Pineapples are not just your average sweet juicy fruit – they are a handy medicine to enjoy in season due to their bromelain content. If you can’t find good Pineapples just now, Bromelain is readily available in supplement form from Mr Vitamins.
