Pineapples are one of the most well-loved fruits around the world. If you’re a constant web surfer you have probably read an article or two saying that “eat pineapples and they will eat you right back”! And the culprit? It’s none other than the enzyme Bromelain. Bromelain is known for its ability in assisting digestion and protein breakdown although its use far transcends these functions and can offer far greater benefits. For example, if you are suffering from chronic inflammation, fibromyalgia or sports injuries consider taking Bromelain supplements to help your body recover.
In addition, Bromelain helps reduce swelling and inflammation often associated with osteoarthritis and rheumatism. Studies have shown that Bromelain promotes a healthy immune system by regulating inflammatory proteins during periods of stress. The use of Bromelain post-surgery has been observed to promote soft-tissue healing and reduce bruising. How does Bromelain work? Bromelain is a “proteolytic enzyme” which means in that its actually absorbs or eats dead or diseased tissue which is ideal for anyone that experiences pain from aging to advanced athletics. Make sure you eat the Pineapple on that next cocktail, it can help relieve pain in more ways than one![ssba-buttons]
