(NaturalNews) Bromelain is a kind of proteolytic enzyme that is obtained from pineapple. It has admirable qualities including improving protein digestion, reducing inflammation and treating indigestion. Pineapple itself has been traditionally used to enhance digestion as well as ease inflammation. With countless studies about Bromelain, the benefits of this anti-inflammatory enzyme are ever increasing and even more recognized now.

How does Bromelain work?

Because it is considered a proteolytic enzyme, Bromelain has the capability to fight off inflammation which may affect the tissues and organs in the body. It helps the body be cleansed from harmful toxins. It also helps prevent blood clotting and improve food and nutrient digestion. Bromelain is also effective in fighting off viral and bacterial activities in the human body.

The anti-inflammatory effect of Bromelain comes from its capability to prevent the formation of kinnins or that which is responsible for inflammation. Its effectiveness at preventing blood clotting is attributed to its ability of breaking down fibrins that often lead to blood clots. In the process of breaking down the sugar complex fibrins, Bromelain also helps eliminate tissue swelling.

Who can benefit from Bromelain?

Everyone may benefit from Bromelain. Due to its health-boosting properties and anti-inflammatory abilities, it is commonly administered to patients after surgery. It can help reduce pain and swelling in the body especially post-surgery.

Bromelain is also helpful for individuals who are engaged in sports specifically those nursing some injuries involving minor muscular ones such as strains in the muscles and sprains. It is also advantageous for individuals who are suffering from acute tendinitis. Bromelain is also applicable for everyday use. It can treat burns, stings and insect bites. Individuals with bone fractures may also find the Bromelain extract helpful.

What are the other benefits of Bromelain extract?

Individuals who are affected by rheumatoid arthritis, can resort to taking Bromelain extract for pain relief. The Rehabilitation Centre for Cardiovascular and Rheumatic Diseases in Saalfelden, Germany found that patients who are suffering from higher pain levels from osteoarthritis have found great relief from taking Bromelain extract. This has been proven in a study conducted in 2006.

It particularly helps enhance the T-cells which is essential in immune defense. It has also been found that Bromelain improves other immune mechanisms by promoting efficiency of the system. In addition, Bromelain is also considered an immune system booster. However, it has not been clearly established if it is helpful for immunocompromised patients yet.

Other benefits of Bromelain extract include reducing bad cholesterol, promoting healthy menstruation by balancing and regulating hormones. Its enzymatic properties are also beneficial in treating warts. It also has a positive effect for patients with Peyronie's disease as well as those who suffer from respiratory tract infections.
