Bromelain Enzyme

Bromelain is a name for enzymes found in pineapple. Bromelain enzymes can dissolve protein and are used to tenderize meat. They are also used as nutritional supplements. When used medicinally, bromelain is thought to aid in digestion and reduce inflammation. It may also have activity against cancer and blood clots.
Bromelain is a mixture of proteolytic (protein-dissolving) enzymes. Bromelain contains substances that may slow down the growth of cancerous cells, decrease the "stickiness" of blood platelets, help to break down blood clots, and help to break down and remove dead, damaged, or infected tissue (such as in burn wounds). This supplement may also affect the way white blood cells function, which may produce anti-inflammatory properties.
In general, there is little scientific evidence to suggest conclusively that bromelain is really effective for most uses. However, early research shows promise for a few different bromelain uses.
