Bromelain (12 products)

 

Bromelain is a protein-digesting enzyme extracted from the flesh and stem of the pineapple plant. Benefits of bromelain include reducing inflammation and swelling, promoting wound healing, easing digestion, reducing muscular or joint pain, benefiting heart health, and reducing allergies or asthma.

 

The bromelain enzyme is composed of several endopeptidases and compounds like phosphatase, glucosidase, peroxidase, cellulase and protease inhibitors. It appears that bromelain causes the body to produce substances that fight pain and inflammation.

 

A bromelain supplement can be taken to help in the treatment of mild sinusitis, soft tissue trauma and joint pain.

 

Bromelain is used for reducing inflammation in the body and has shown to work particularly well in treating the pain and inflammation associated with arthritis.

 

Bromelain also contains chemicals that interfere with the growth of tumour cells and slow blood clotting. Research has found bromelain to have natural anti-cancer effects, including promoting apoptotic cell death and preventing tumour growth. Studies have linked bromelain to increased protection against breast and lung cancer.
