Benefits of Bromelain

  • PMS symptoms

What is Bromelain

Bromelain is a mixture of enzymes that is found in the juice and fruit of pineapples, and has been used in traditional medicine in Central and South America for centuries. 

The active ingredients in Bromelain are ‘proteinases’ and ‘proteases’, which are enzymes that help to break down proteins in the body. This means that Bromelain is often used for a range of issues from reducing the symptoms of sinusitis and nasal swelling to helping relieve PMS symptoms. The amount of Bromelain in each serving of pineapple fruit or juice is very small, so for nutritional benefit the Bromelain needs to be extracted and concentrated to be of use to us.
