Bromelain:benefits,uses and more

Bromelain, which is extracted from pineapple, has a wide range of applications in industries such as food and biology.

Bromelain is mainly derived from the stems of pineapples, and this enzyme usually appears as a fine white to light brownish-yellow powder, soluble in water but insoluble in ethanol (or ether).



What are the effects of bromelain?

01 First of all, bromelain has the ability to break down proteins into smaller peptides and amino acids so that they can be more easily absorbed and utilized by the body. Therefore, bromelain is used in the food industry as an enzyme to tenderize meat and break down proteins, as well as a digestive aid to help digest proteins in food and improve discomfort caused by indigestion.

02 Bromelain also exhibits anti-inflammatory and decongestive properties. It can help reduce inflammatory reactions and symptoms of edema, and is commonly used in the treatment of various inflammatory diseases, such as arthritis. In addition, bromelain promotes the elimination of toxins from the kidneys, improves excess toxins in the kidneys, and promotes blood circulation.

03 In the medical field, bromelain can inhibit inflammation and infection, which has a positive effect on the treatment of inflammatory diseases. It also improves the local circulation of body fluids for an anti-inflammatory effect.

Who is better suited to take it?

First of all, people with indigestion are suitable for using Bromelain. As bromelain has the ability to break down proteins, it can help digestion, especially after consuming meat and greasy food, bromelain can promote the body’s metabolism and improve the symptoms of indigestion.

Secondly, pineapple protease is also beneficial to people suffering from nephritis and high blood pressure. It can assist the kidneys to eliminate toxins, reduce platelet aggregation, improve drug absorption and facilitate blood circulation.

In addition, Bromelain is also suitable for people suffering from tumors or various types of inflammation.

Why is pineapple enzyme an effective treatment for inflammation?

The reason why bromelain can be effective in treating inflammation is mainly related to its biological activity. Bromelain is a catalytic enzyme that catalyzes the breaking of molecular peptide bonds in proteins, which results in the breakdown of proteins, peptides, lipids and amides. This breakdown helps to reduce the inflammatory response in the body.

In addition, bromelain exhibits anti-inflammatory and anti-edema properties. It is able to reduce inflammation-induced symptoms such as redness, swelling and pain by reducing the release of inflammatory mediators and inhibiting the onset of inflammatory reactions. Therefore, bromelain is often used clinically for post-surgical infections, acute inflammation of bone and joints, and mastitis.

Any side effects?

The main side effects of Bromelain include the following:

Skin reactions: if a patient is allergic to bromelain, he or she may experience discomfort such as itching, rashes, and redness of the skin.

Gastrointestinal discomfort: excessive or inappropriate use of bromelain may burden the gastrointestinal tract, resulting in abdominal pain, bloating, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, peptic ulcers and other symptoms.
