Bromelain is a powerful enzyme found in pineapple, and may be the reason you feel a tingling or burning sensation if you eat too much.
Studies have shown that bromelain also contains potential anti-inflammatory properties. In fact, bromelain may have the same anti-inflammatory capacity as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) without the common side effects.
These promising studies prove just why you should include this tangy, tropical fruit regularly in your diet!
However, one size does not fit all! Two of my recent patients revealed sensitivity to pineapple after we checked IgE/IgG profile. It cought them by surprise. As I have mentioned in my previous posts, you may not experience any symptoms for a while, or you may not associate your symptoms (such as bloating, loose stool, pain, burning, etc) with food sensitivity.
If you experience any unexplained GI symptoms, you may benefit from checking yourselves for food sensitivity and allergy. The test also checks for sensitivity to environmental agents. If you wish to discuss it further, please contact us for free consultation.
