Bromelain is yet another enzyme that is quite beneficial to the body but rarely talked about. It’s primary benefit is for thinning the blood and this helps the heart and circulatory system to work more easily. There is evidence that a more viscous blood equates to a higher chance of heart disease or even stroke.
Bromelain is also beneficial for an increased immune system. It fights inflammation, which we just recently discussed as being the leading cause of prostate problems. It also helps with digestion, breaking down meat proteins more efficiently, and all inflammation related conditions, such as chronic arthritis.
While a person can have too much bromelain, it’s rare and most people simply need more.
