Bromelain is a protein-digesting enzyme mixture derived from the stem, fruit, and juice of the pineapple plant. People use bromelain as a supplement for various health benefits, including reducing inflammation, improving digestion, and relieving sinus problems. Healers have used this enzyme for hundreds of years in many different ways to treat medical conditions. Now, people who are looking for all-natural ways to improve their health and decrease swelling use bromelain in health supplements or also as an ingredient in skin creams.
Where Does Bromelain Come From?
During the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, pineapple plants were introduced to the Asia Pacific and became the first commercial crop. Bromelain is a complex natural mixture of proteolytic enzymes derived from pineapple and possesses notable therapeutic properties. Bromelain is present in the stems of pineapple as well as the yellow fleshy fruit of the plant. Manufacturers usually sell bromelain as a capsule, cream, powder, or tablet.
Bromelain is categorized as a dietary supplement and generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the FDA. People often use bromelain supplements to improve the symptoms of osteoarthritis. A 2004 review of clinical studies found that bromelain is a useful treatment for osteoarthritis, due to its anti-inflammatory effects. In the study, it was concluded that “bromelain, an extract from the pineapple plant, has been demonstrated to show anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties and may provide a safer alternative or adjunctive treatment for osteoarthritis.”
According to a 2016 review of studies, research in cell and animal models has suggested that bromelain can reduce certain compounds associated with cancer inflammation and tumor growth. Bromelain also may help stimulate a healthy immune system to release inflammation-fighting immune system compounds. This study also suggests that bromelain can reduce transforming growth factor-beta, which is a compound associated with inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis.
In addition to the anti-inflammatory benefits of bromelain, the enzyme has been found to help with relieving sinusitis, asthma, colitis, burns, anti-cancer, and anti-tumor benefits, high blood pressure, enhancing digestion and aiding in weight loss.
