Bromelain is an extract derived from the stems of pineapples, although it exists in all parts of the fresh plant and fruit, which has many uses. The extract has a history of folk and modern medicinal use. As a supplement, it is thought to have anti-inflammatory effects.
Bromelain also contains chemicals that might interfere with the growth of tumor cells and slow blood clotting, As a culinary ingredient, it is used primarily as a tenderizer. Additionally, Bromelain is a mixture of proteolytic, or protein-digesting, enzymes found in pineapple. Bromelain breaks protein down into smaller segments making it a great digestion aid. (source) . If you are suffering of severe digestion issues, specially after eating meats (protein) you can potentially benefit from Bromelain in the form of a dietary supplement because it will contain concentrated-higher amounts of this enzyme.
The term “bromelain” may refer to either of two protease enzymes extracted from the plants of the family Bromeliaceae, or it may refer to a combination of those enzymes along with other compounds produced in an extract.[/note]
