Will eating pineapple daily help you burn fat due to its bromelain content?

Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme that can be found in the stem and juice of pineapple. Bromelain was found to be very effective when it comes to inflammation such as arthritis and to improve digestion. No scientific evidence is present at this moment to conclude that bromelain has any effect on fat burning or weight loss. In fact, eating excessive amounts of pineapple daily could increase your total sugar and calorie intake and cause weight gain. So, if you enjoy eating pineapple, do so in moderation. Also make sure you eat fresh pineapple, not the high sugar canned ones!
