A recent study has found the enzyme bromelain to have potent anticancer properties, proving to be highly antiinflammatory, antithrombotic and antineoplastic.

Bromelain is found in pineapple, in especially high concentrations in the stem.

Bromelain has potent immune stimulating function and may help to reduce the growth of cancers.

Pineapple is also high in the antioxidant vitamin C, but don’t forget to eat the stem!
