Dr. Oz: Pineapple Benefits
Dr. Oz talked about the benefits of pineapples for bruising, swelling, and pain. Pineapples contain an enzyme called bromelain. Pineapples have been used for centuries to help digestion and treat inflammation. Today, we know it’s the bromelain that gives the fruit its healing properties. Bromelain is concentrated in the stem. It can relax muscles, reduce swelling, and soothe minor burns. You can eat pineapple or take bromelain as a supplement to reap the benefits.
