Pineapple has been used as a medicinal plant in several native cultures and bromelain has been known chemically since 1876. Bromelain is a digestive enzyme found in the stem and fruit of the pineapple plant (Ananas comosus).
It is best known as a digestive aid and for its anti-inflammatory effects in traumatic injuries and after surgery. Bromelain has also been used successfully to treat a number of disorders, including heart disease, arthritis, upper respiratory tract infection, and Peyronie's disease (a condition that affects the genito-urinary tract and can cause sexual dysfunction in men).
Bromelain has also been used successfully to heal wounds caused by burns and to increase the actions of antibiotics. Bromelain is extensively employed in the Protocols section of the Complete Blood Type Encyclopedia.
