According to the American Gastroenterological Association, somewhere between 60 and 70 million Americans suffer from gastrointestinal diseases, meaning chronic health conditions are hampering their gut health and their digestive systems are not functioning as they should. That has doctors quite worried because patients also express concern in discussing gut-related health issues, indicating some level of stigma associated with gut conditions. That is especially true when gut health problems go hand-in-hand with weight problems, which they often do.[1]

What is Bromelain?

In addition to the decline in the food system and the increasingly unhealthy food options that Americans are becoming addicted to, the health of one’s gut is just as dependent on the gut’s ability to digest food as it is on the person consuming healthy food. The issue of the ability to digest food is not discussed nearly enough. That is why it is so important people take the nutrients and supplements they need to assist healthy digestion.

Even if a person maintains a very healthy diet, if their gut is not getting the nutrients it needs to digest food effectively, that person will not be receiving the full benefit of the food they eat. This is where Bromelain comes in. Bromelain is a mixture of enzymes found in pineapple that digest protein. It supports healthy digestion and joint health and helps relieve physical stress.

From the Founder: The Benefits of Bromelain

Bromelain is not a health supplement one hears about every day. Immune Solution founder Jackie Page describes the wonder-supplement like this:

  • Bromelain is a protein-digesting enzyme complex found in the fruit and, in higher concentrations, in the stem of the pineapple (Ananas comosus). It is able to break down a wide variety of protein types in a range of both acidic and alkaline environments. Pineapple has been used for centuries in Central and South America to treat indigestion and reduce inflammation. Bromelain, which is derived from the stem and juice of the pineapple, was first isolated from the pineapple plant in the late 1800s. Bromelain can be used to treat a number of conditions, though it is particularly effective in reducing inflammation from infection and injuries.”

Bromelain plays an important role in supporting gut health. The nutrient breaks down protein, ensuring the individual gets the full benefits of the protein-rich foods they consume. Without getting too much into the technical terminology, Bromelain is an enzyme, a biological catalyst that speeds up the rate of specific chemical reactions necessary to human health.

Bromelain assists the body’s digestive mechanisms in reducing very large, very complex protein molecules into smaller amino acids. These smaller components are crucial for producing muscle, neurotransmitters, and other protein-based molecules the body normally produces. Finally, many of Bromelain’s benefits are actually based on absorption of the intact enzyme in the small intestine, which is why Bromelain is so important to maintaining good gut health.
