Description - Research and Analysis
Pineapple stems are the source of a very powerful group of enzymes called Bromelain. These enzymes are extracted from the stems of pineapples. Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme which digests protein. These pineapple stem enzymes are very useful for the reduction of inflammation in muscles and tissues. Pineapple stem can also be used as a digestive aid.
Bromelain can also be used as a natural blood thinner. It thins the blood by breaking fibrin down. Fibrin is a protein that clots the blood, which in turn can impede normal circulation and even keep tissues from properly draining. Bromelain is also useful for blocking the body's production of compounds which cause pain and swelling. By helping to reduce inflammation, blood is more easily able to move to a traumatized area in need, resulting in a reduction in pain and a speedier repairing process.
Researchers at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research (QIMR) have always known that pineapple stems contain enzymes that can help digestion.
"The discovery of the biological properties was quite by accident - it was one of those true serendipitous discoveries," Dr Mynott said.
The researchers have just won a study grant from the National Health and Medical Research Council which will allow them to conduct clinical trials within two years using drugs based upon pineapple stems.
The study grant was part of a total $100 million in Australian Government research and development funds announced by Federal Health Minister Tony Abbott.
"Our Government is very conscious of the good our health and medical researchers do and the importance of ever increasing investment, if Australia is to retain its world leading edge," Mr Abbott said.

What part of the pineapple is the stem?

|The 'stem', or 'shoot', refers to the group of green leaves which grow out of the top of the pineapple.|
Take 1 to 2 capsules with meals to aid digestion and heartburn. Take 1 to 3 capsules daily, between meals, for muscle aches, strains, gout, bronchitis, arthritic pain, sinusitis, or insect bites or stings.
