What Is It About Pineapple Juice?

Besides helping to break down the proteins in food, the enzyme bromelain found in pineapple juice also aids in destroying harmful bacteria in the stomach and intestine because it can improve poor appetite resulting from insufficient gastric juice. Fresh pineapple juice is often prescribed as atonic and bodybuilding drink for convalescents and for cancer patients undergoing treatment.

Pineapple juice tastes good. It ranks at #2 or #3 worldwide in different surveys. It is also good for you. 

We can all appreciate that it is easier when the treatment tastes good! Especially when dealing with sick kids (and quite often adults!). A refreshing beverage is far less threatening.

However, to be clear, these benefits apply to unprocessed juice. Processing may change the composition.

Real pineapple juice is packed with helpful nutrients that work together to benefit our health. Noted nutrients include:

  • Bromelain
  • Malic acid
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin B1
  •  Potassium
  • Copper
  • Manganese

Whether from folk remedies or recent conventional medical science, there are number of health benefits. Research into nutrition and food as medicine continue to highlight health benefits like:

  • Hair & skin
  • Infections
  • Coughs and Colds
  • Sore throats
  • Digestion
  • Blood Pressure
  • Heart Health
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Reduced instance of degenerative diseases
  • Bone health
  • Menstrual disorders
  • Excessive water retention
  • Acute tendon injuries
  • Oral health

Researchers have even highlighted the benefit of bromelain for those living with HIV and also suggest potential new uses to combat cancers like colon, esophagus, and stomach because of antioxidants like Vitamin C.

You can enjoy pineapple juice by itself or mix in a few other items to boost the health benefits. Two of our favorites in the Perry household are a squeeze of lime and / or just a sliver of fresh ginger. What a great digestive!
