Pineapple (Bromelain) & Implantation

DID YOU KNOW? 




Using Pineapple & pineapple core can help to assist implantation: Pineapple contains bromelain. Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme that breaks up proteins that inhibit embryo implantation. Consuming a whole pineapple (focusing on the core as it has the highest concentration of Bromelain) during a fertility cycle can be beneficial.

For IVF [in vitro fertilization] cycle: one pineapple core, divided into 5 portions - consume one portion each day, over five days, beginning on the day of your embryo transfer.

Natural cycle: one pineapple core , divided into 5 portions - consume one portion each day, over five days, beginning on the day after ovulation.

Use Organic Pineapple only!

I mention to all my patients to eat Pineapple prior to their IVF Cycle and Natural Fertility! I have found pineapple to contribute to pregnant bellies!
