Bromelain is a powerful protein digesting enzyme that is found in the pineapple plant. Enzymes are the active ingredients that cause the chemical breakdown of foods. Bromelain helps break down proteins but has also been found by researchers to consume up to 900 times its’ own weight in fat which suggests that just one gram of Bromelain could eat two pounds of fat. Taken with meals it works around the clock to help one lose weight. Bromelain also helps with muscle and joint distress by blocking the production of compounds that can cause swelling and pain. When the inflammation is reduced, blood can move more easily to an injured area easing the pain and increasing healing, which can be useful to those suffering with arthritis. It can also reduce aching and stiffness of muscles for back pain and sports injuries.

You can’t put fresh pineapple in Jell-o because the bromelain
prevents the gelatin from setting. Canned pineapple can be
used because canning destroys the bromelain.
