Bromelain is a protein-digesting (proteolytic) enzyme, which may help to reduce inflammation.
As bromelain breaks down protein, it assists your body's own digestive mechanisms. It may inhibit the ability of bad bacteria and candida albicans from adhering to the lining of the small intestine. A healthy digestive system is essential for an optimally functioning immune system.
Some nutritional experts estimate that up to 33% of people eating "western diet" can experience candida albicans over-proliferation.
Bromelain is found in pineapple, with higher concentrations in the stem.
