When we are faced with flue or any kind of inflammation the first thing we do we buy different kind of syrups and pills. Recently a discovery was made for the pineapple juice. The researches demonstrate that the juice is rich with anti- inflammatory properties, contains enzyme bromelain which helps healing the infections and destroys bacteria.
The metabolism and energy after receiving it are visibly improved because he is filled with vitamin C and has vital enzymes. Manganese is also present for helping the bones, absorbing calcium and the increase of regularity in nerves.
Pineapples contain bromelain, an enzyme with anti-inflammatory properties. It fights infections and kills bacteria. The juice from fresh pineapples can suppress coughs five times more effectively than cough syrup.
One cup of pineapple juice contains nearly 50% of the daily requirement for vitamin C intake. This helpful nutrient works to implement the use of vital enzymes within the body that regulate metabolism and energy conversion.
But the list of its numerous benefits does not end there. The pineapple juice can help you soothe a sore throat and aids the body to expel mucous easily. Thick and stubborn mucus in your lungs or sinuses can cause seemingly endless spasms of coughing, sneezing and painful infections.
“Der Pharma Chemica” published a study in 2010, whose aim was to discover some beneficial treatments for patients who have tuberculosis, an infectious disease often caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. As part of their study, researchers found that a mixture of raw pineapple juice, pepper, salt and honey given to patients every day helped to dissolve the mucus in the lungs.
Most of us do not need additional sugar in our diets, so look only for natural unsweetened pineapple juice and stay away from canned. If you can juice the pineapple yourself, that would be far superior to any store bought.
