Big and Juicy Ananas Comosus (nenas, pineapple) - Bromelain

My brother in law gave me this huge Pineapple (Scientific name, Ananas Comosus) which measure more than 1 foot in length (look at the 1 foot ruler next to it). Some farmer gave it to him when he visited their farm. Pineapple contains Bromelain which has many medical uses. Bromelain is an effective compound capable of blocking pro inflammatory metabolites that causes inflammation to our body parts. Therefore, this natural compound is effective in treating arthritis, injuries, trauma, indigestion, sinusitis, accelerate surgery wound healing process, autoimmune disorders, gout, haemorrhoids, arteries blood clot, and menstrual pain. Those with heart problem should avoid Bromelain because it can increase heart rate count. Anyway, this huge pineapple is very juicy and sweet too after I added some salt after cutting. The juice was flowing all over the container I used to hold it. Mmmmmmm, nice and fresh pineapple!
