Pineapples contain Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme that may help arthritis pain by easing inflammation. Bromelain is often used to treat muscle injuries and as a digestive aid. Bromelain has potent anti-inflammatory properties and therefore may be useful in promoting the healing of minor muscle injuries such as sprains and strains.
Bromelain aids digestion by enhancing the effects of the digestive enzymes trypsin and pepin. It can also help to prevent heartburn and ease diarrhea, if either are caused by a deficiency of digestive enzymes.
There has also been some suggestion that bromelain has anti-cancer properties, although this has not been proven. Several recent studies have linked chronic inflammation to cancer, thus any anti-cancer action of Bromelain could be due to it anti-inflammatory properties.
Pineapples are also a good source of vitamin C, which helps your immune system.
