(NaturalNews) Bromelain is an inexpensive enzyme supplement with many uses and health benefits. Enzymes don't get much respect, yet they are considered more important functionally than vitamins and minerals. Without enzymes, food cannot be broken down into its constituent nutrients, and enzymes are needed for most cellular metabolic actions.

Bromelain, not to be confused with pharmaceutical bromaline, is a proteolytic enzyme or protease found most abundantly in pineapple cores. Protease or proteolytic enzymes are needed to digest complete proteins found in meat.

Cooking meat destroys most of the enzymes needed to break down meat's complete proteins into amino acids that the body can use.

This puts a strain on the pancreas to create more proteolytic enzymes for the small intestines to break down the meat proteins. That strain can potentially lead to pancreatic cancer. But what's more likely, the diversion of breaking down meat proteins takes away some other functions protease enzymes perform to keep or get you healthy.

Bromelain helps treat many modern maladies and cancer

Bromelain proteolytic enzyme supplements grant many health benefits beyond digesting whole proteins. Complete proteins are hard to digest. That's why only proteolytic enzymes work - they're tough enough to crack those proteins open. And if they're tough enough for that, they can help in other areas.

Bromelain protease can dissolve internal scar tissue created from inflammation. Besides calming the inflamed area, this also takes away hiding places for pathogens to lodge. Scar tissue that hangs around is like a breeding shelter that invites disease for long term visits.

Bromelain speeds up recovery from injuries and surgeries. It has been clinically tested to prove that it enhances surgical recovery. Some naturopaths recommend it be taken before and after any surgical procedure, including dental.

Since cancer cells are protected from the immune system's white "killer" cells by a protein wall, any cancer treatment can be augmented by adding bromelain supplements. Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez uses his own type of proteolytic enzymes with his version of William Donald Kelley's successful innovations for curing cancer with enzymes (

The enzymes used by Kelley and Gonzalez are super premium, used in great quantities, and expensive. They are the main thrust, a sort of natural chemo, for serious cancer cases. But bromelain protease supplements are very cheap, and can be used as a supportive adjunct with any other cancer treatment.

Another role bromelain plays with its tough proteolytic enzymes is busting up clots beginning to form among blood platelets. This is good news for anyone dealing with cardiovascular problems. These are all functions one can expect from a tough protease enzyme.

But wait, there's more! Some research indicates bromelain is anti-viral and anti-bacterial. It can be used help heal bronchitis and pneumonia. German research has shown that bromelain oral supplements enhance the immune system. Other research indicates that cytokine hormones manufactured in white blood cells are boosted by bromelain as well.

Using bromelain

Therapeutic bromelain doses range from 300 to 1500 mgs per day. One source recommends not exceeding 3000 mgs in one day. Dr. Richard Cohen recommends taking bromelain away from meals if it's being used therapeutically. This frees up the enzymes from digesting foods to performing other healthy functions.
