Everyone knows pineapple fruit, but do they know pineapple extract? Perhaps, there are only few people knows that the extract of pineapple benefits for health. This pineapple extract is known as Bromelain, an enzyme found in pineapple juice and in the pineapple stem. A research from Abteilung Pharmazeutische Biochemie (1995) concludes when Bromelain is in the stomach, it will help the body break down and digest protein. Supplementation of bromelain can also reduce nasal inflammation, meaning it acts as an anti-inflammatory effect.
Moreover, bromelain helps to relieve the pain of sprains, injuries, osteoarthritis, and surgery, and many more (see pictures above). Bromelain has versatile therapeutic capabilities. It is well absorbed after oral intake. Until now, there is no major side effect, even after long-term usage. Overall, Bromelain is a healthy addition to your diet!
