    Bromelain is an enzyme found in pineapple that digests proteins.

    Not only does bromelain help with digestion by breaking down food proteins, but it is also absorbed into the bloodstream and helps break down proteins from damaged tissues.* In addition, it helps mop up debris clogging the lymph system.* This allows the immune functions of the body to function optimally.*

    Benefits of Bromelain:*

    •  Supports healthy tissues and natural healing
    •  Promotes comfort in overworked joints and tendons
    •  Breakdown mucous and reduce secretions
    Side effects: Bromelain is generally considered safe. Side effects from bromelain are generally mild and include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and excessive menstrual bleeding. People who are allergic to pineapples, wheat, celery, papain, carrot, fennel, cypress pollen, or grass pollen may also be allergic to bromelain.
