Bromelain is a mixture of enzymes derived from the fruit and stem of the pineapple plant. The bromelain enzyme works in the body by supporting its natural anti-inflammatory responses, facilitate normal healing of wounds, and regulate effective protein digestion. Studies suggest that it may also exhibit adaptogenic properties, which supports the body’s natural response to physical stress.

Bromelain is the reason behind the use of pineapples as meat tenderiser, for its ability to digest proteins. This proteolytic ability also produces most of bromelain benefits to health. Bromelain supplements promote proper digestion and protect the digestive system from the effects of unmetabolised protein molecules. This pineapple enzyme assists the pancreas when it fails to produce the needed enzymes needed for digestion. Bromelain works perfectly with Amylases and Lipases that breaks down carbohydrates and fats for a more efficient metabolism. Bromelain supplements are also known in the market to support the body’s natural anti-inflammatory response. Bromelain extract promotes adaptability to physical stress, especially those that come from sport injuries and other physical trauma. For this reason, Bromelain is suggested for athletes, body builders, and other active sport enthusiasts.

Bromelain is a combination of two proteases (protein-digesting enzymes) extracted from the pineapple plant. All parts of the plant contain bromelain, but the highest concentration lies within its stem. It is the bromelain enzyme why pineapple juice is commercially known to tenderise meat. It is until in 1957 that the therapeutic effects of this pineapple enzyme were discovered. Consisting of proteolytic enzymes, Bromelain extract is able to divide or simplify proteins by separating amino acids. Amino acids form proteins by forming peptide bonds that serves as connecting link from one amino acid’s amino group to another amino acid’s carboxyl group. The health benefits of bromelain are produced by its ability to break down fibrin, the elastic protein produced from the combination of fibrinogen and thrombin that forms a clot. Blood clots compromise circulation by clogging blood vessels and by traveling within the whole circulatory system. Bromelain enzyme also inhibits accumulation of kinins and prostaglandins, the chemicals that induce inflammation. Excessive accumulation of prostaglandins can lead to abnormal clot formation and inflammation in the sites of injury, producing pain and tenderness. In the gastro intestinal tract, Bromelain supplements efficiently break down the proteins from animal meat, milk, dairy products, and other protein-rich foods. This action goes together with amylases that break down carbohydrates and lipases that break down fats.
