- What is bromelain?
It is an enzyme found in pineapple. It is called a proteolytic enzyme because it breaks down proteins.
- Why is that important?
Bromelain can be taken as a digestive aid, because the breakdown of proteins helps the digestive process. But it may also serve another process, and that is helping to support already normal blood flow.
- How does it do that?
Because it can break down or dissolve proteins that accumulate in the blood vessels, it may also support cardiovascular health.
