Description

People use bromelain as an anti-inflammatory, for joint health, and as a digestive aid.**

Bromelain is a natural digestive enzyme that is found in the stems of pineapple. It is used to aid the digestion of proteins for improved nutritional absorption.** As a natural enzyme, bromelain helps digest protein in the gastrointestinal tract. In general, enzymes break down the nutritional components of proteins, fats and carbohydrates, making these nutrients available for the body’s energy needs, cell growth, and other vital functions.

It helps aid digestion of food and also has been shown to reduce inflammation. People use bromelain mainly for those two reasons, however there are many claims about bromelains other uses. Some people believe the anti-inflammatory properties of bromelain are good not only for the joint inflammation and osteoarthritis but for the sinuses too.

    Q: Is it safe to take bromelain daily?
    A: Yes, in fact you can take bromelain multiple times a day to help with inflammation pain and ease digestion.

    Q: Is bromelain good for the lungs?
    A: Yes, bromelain can be good for the lungs! Since bromelain is well-known for its anti-inflammatory properties, it is easy to correlate bromelain usage with relief of symptoms due to inflammatory response. That being said, just as many use bromelain to ease inflammation in the joints, one can use it to support other types of issues that result in inflammation. For example, bromelain has been used to help relieve the airways of inflammation that was caused by allergies, autoimmune diseases, and even heavy exercise.

    Q: Does bromelain kill viruses?
    A: Bromelain doesn’t kill viruses directly, but it can help. Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme, meaning it is an enzyme the breaks down the walls of protein molecules. Viruses, while commonly thought of as “living things”, have been shown to act like proteins because of their susceptibility to proteolytic enzymes. When enzymes like bromelain encounter a virus, they get to work by breaking down its protective protein film leaving a virus unprotected and more vulnerable to the immune system response.
