Pineapple

Bromelain is an enzyme found in pineapple. It may have anti-inflammatory effects and may aid protein digestion. Pineapple can actually be used as a meat tenderizer because of its ability to break down proteins. The enzyme may also affect blood coagulation.

Bromelain may slow clotting time; therefore, it can interact with blood-thinning medications. Consuming large quantities of pineapple while taking medicinal blood thinners may increase the risk of bleeding and bruising.6Kaur H;Corscadden K;Lott C;Elbatarny HS;Othman M; ‘Bromelain Has Paradoxical Effects on Blood Coagulability: a Study Using Thromboelastography.’ Blood Coagulation & Fibrinolysis : an International Journal in Haemostasis and Thrombosis, U.S. National Library of Medicine, pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/25517253/
