Derived from the Pineapple stem (Ananus Cosumus), Bromelain has significant anti-inflammatory action which is attributable to the Bromelain enzyme Escharase (Bromelain is a combination of several enzymes) . Bromelain and its group of enzymes also exhibit the ability to stem blood platelet aggregation.
Why is inflammation harmful to the heart?
Chronic inflammation destabilizes cholesterol deposits in the coronary arteries which increases the likelihood of plaque formation and dangerous arterial blockage. While LDL levels, diet and smoking are risk factors that also contribute to plaque formation and heart disease, it appears that inflammation can increase the risk that plaque formations will burst and cause myocardial infarction (heart attack) and/or stroke.
Why is blood platelet aggregation potentially harmful?
Blood platelet aggregation indicates the degree of thrombocyte "stickiness" or the degree to which blood platelets will clump. Clumping or aggregation may contribute to arterial blockage, heart attack or stroke.
