Bromelain is a protein-digesting enzyme extracted from Pineapple. It has been traditionally used in anti-inflammatory and anti-swelling medicine. However, Bromelain has benefits that go beyond its anti-inflammatory properties.

In today’s blog, we take a look at what science says about Bromelain. Here are 4 evidence-backed Benefits:

Reduces Recovery Period

Having anti-inflammatory properties, Bromelain supports faster recovery from injuries and surgery. It can be a natural alternative to painkillers like Aspirin. In a study on dental patients who had their molars extracted, it was found that Bromelain significantly reduced pain and inflammation, and promoted quicker recovery.

In another study, patients who were administered Bromelain reported lesser pain and redness as compared to the placebo group.

Treats Indigestion and Gastrointestinal issues

Bromelain also helps combat indigestion and treat the gastrointestinal disorder. It has been studied to increase the body’s absorption rate of nutrients, and even medicines significantly. Research also suggests that this enzyme treats colonic inflammation and reduces the secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines that can injure the gut lining. Because of its healing properties within the gastrointestinal tract, this enzyme is quite beneficial for people with GI issues.

Natural Anti-Cancer Properties

According to the research, the enzyme Bromelain helps prevent the formation of cancer cells by promoting apoptotic cell death and stopping the growth of tumors. In studies done on animals, it has been noted that Bromelain promotes the production of distinct cytokines, and inhibits metastasis by reducing platelet aggregation.

In a study published in the Anticancer Drugs journal, bromeliad was linked to protection against breast and lung cancer. The researchers said: “The addition of bromelain increased the die-off of cancer cells (cytotoxicity) significantly… Bromelain has the potential of being developed as a therapeutic agent in treating malignant cancer.”

Encourages Fat Loss

Although this is still under study, there’s good reason to believe that Bromelain may lead to weight loss. Some studies have linked the intake of Bromelain with a reduction in adipocyte fatty acid-binding protein, fatty acid synthase, and lipoprotein lipase. Also, its’ anti-inflammatory properties, ability to improve recovery and physical capabilities may lead to weight-loss.
