Ayurvedic practitioners are the ones who claim that your daily routine is the one to affect the way your body fights and prevents diseases. We’re here to discuss about the benefits of fresh pineapple water. It can boost your body’s ability to cope with diseases. If you drink it before your breakfast, you’ll be able to notice the amazing effect it has on your health.
Pineapples contain various micronutrients, vitamin and bromelain. We need all of them so that we can function normally.
Here are 10 reasons why we should drink pineapple water:
Bromelain is the one that offers a strong anti-inflammatory effect. It fights inflammatory processes, and eliminates toxins at the same time. Eat fresh pineapple chunks as often as you can! It will help you relieve any sports injury as well as any arthritis symptom.
The fiber found in pineapples is slowly digested. After you’ve eaten a pineapple snack, you won’t crave for food for a long time. It will also help you prevent the fat and sugar cravings. Thiamine is also a part of pineapples and it turns the carbs into energy, but also stimulates your metabolism.
Eliminate parasites from liver and gut
Bromelain is full of anti-parasitic properties. They can keep your intestines healthy and safe from parasites. Scientists have managed to prove that a simple 3-day pineapple fasting is able to destroy tape worms.
Iodine and bromelain contained in pineapples are both excellent for your thyroid. They are also excellent to help you treat various autoimmune disorders, but also relieve any symptoms associated with thyroid dysfunction.
The potassium found in pineapples balances electrolytes and strengthens your system. This mineral will help you prevent cramps and injuries.
Flush out toxins and heavy metals
Pineapples contain a lot of enzymes, fiber, and antioxidants that work in a synergy to remove toxins and heavy metals from the body.
Bromelain is the one that eases the digestion of protein.
Strengthen gums, whiten and protect teeth
According to Dr. Frawley, bromelain is very powerful and helps in removing stains. You can also use it to get rid of plaque!
Pineapples are also abundant in beta-carotene and vitamin A. They’re both excellent in boosting your vision. According to experts at the Archives of Ophthalmology, consuming 3 or more servings of pineapple will help you reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration (ARMD). According to statistics, this is the top cause of vision loss in elderly.
A research published in the journal Planta Medica managed to prove that bromelain works better than 5-fluorouracil which is a chemo drug commonly given to cancer patients!
In researchers’ own words: “This antitumoral effect (of bromelain) was superior to that of 5-FU (5-fluorouracil), whose survival index was approximately 363%, relative to the untreated control.”
