I love pineapples, but do you know the benefits it has for your skin? Bromelain is an extract derived from the stem and core of pineapples. It has many health benefits such as being a potent anti-inflammatory, antithrombotic, and fibrinolytic. 💧It can be used as an digestive aid, 💧can reduce inflammation, which can help to treat or prevent inflammatory diseases.
In addition to the digestive and anti-inflammatory benefits of bromelain, it has also been shown to be 💧a blood thinner and 💧anti-coagulant. This can provide benefits for 💧wound healing, as well as diseases of the arteries and veins💧it can thin mucous, making it a possible treatment for breathing conditions tied to excess mucus like asthma and 💧treat hay fever and 💧sinus problems. Bromelain also contains properties that 💧interfere with tumor growth, so it can help to treat and prevent cancer. The health benefits of bromelain are not just for the inside of the body. Using the pineapple extract in skin care can help to 💧treat and prevent breakouts in inflammatory skin conditions, such as acne, dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema, and rosaceous. 💧 It’s a natural exfoliant that breaks down, 💧is a complex of protein-metabolizing enzymes and it breaks down proteins.
