5 Ways To Use Pineapple As A Medicine

Pineapple is a delicious fruit, very popular
around the world, and brings many benefits to our health. It can be eaten in pieces, juices, jams, and
even as a syrup. It can also improve digestion, blood circulation,
respiratory and heart health, and immune system. Did you know that pineapple also fights colds,
flu, infections, and parasites? Besides all those benefits, pineapple can
also help with weight loss and cancer prevention. Isn’t it amazing? Originally from South America, today it can
be found all over the world. Pineapple is rich in water, soluble and insoluble
fibers, such as pectin, vitamins B and C, beta-carotene, and minerals, such as calcium,
copper, manganese, potassium, magnesium, iron, and zinc. It also contains bromelain, an enzyme that
helps with protein digestion. Did you know that? See now all the benefits of pineapples and
how to use it for different purposes: Helps with weight loss
Because it has a lot of water, pineapple is a great diuretic, and, thus, a great ally
for your body, helping reduce liquid retention. Eating pineapples reduces the craving for
sweets, making this fruit a great aid for those who are trying to lose weight. If this is your case, eat 2 slices of pineapple
with cinnamon in the mornings. Improves digestion
The bromelain found in pineapples acts in the stomach, digesting proteins, facilitating
nutrient utilization, and helping and accelerating heavy digestion. Because of the high levels of fiber, it also
prevents constipation and regulates the intestine. In this case, eat a cup of chopped pineapple
in between each meal. Are you enjoying this video? Share it with your friends, so they can learn

The bromelain, along with high amounts of vitamin C, acts to reduce phlegm and mucus
formation in the respiratory system. Besides preventing them, bromelain can also
help eliminate things from your body. If that’s your case, make a pineapple syrup. You will need 2 cups of diced pineapples,
1 tablespoon of ginger powder, and the juice of 1 lemon. Blend everything together in a blender, and
take one tablespoon of this syrup three times a day, until the symptoms go away. It will boost your immune system since 3.5
ounces of pineapple has more than 40% of the recommended amount of daily dose of vitamin
C. Vitamin C stimulates white cells, and acts as an antioxidant, fighting the free radicals
that can cause diseases, including cancer. Fights arthritis
Once more, bromelain is in the spotlight. Besides breaking down complex proteins, it
also has a great anti-inflammatory effect, reducing the signs and symptoms of arthritis. To get this benefit, drink a cup of pineapple
juice in the morning, while still fasting. Don’t add sugar. Controls blood pressure
The potassium found in pineapples is an important vasodilator. It alleviates tension in blood vessels and
promotes good blood circulation throughout the body. It prevents the buildup of residues in the
veins, reducing the risk of strokes and heart attacks. Besides potassium, pineapple also contains
copper, essential to the good functioning of the human body. Copper acts on the production of healthy red
blood cells. The more red blood cells in your body, the
better will be the oxygenation of the organs. As a consequence, it also improves cognitive
capacities, and helps prevent neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer’s. If you want to control your blood pressure,
it is important to eat pineapple with foods that contain nitrates, like beets. In a blender, add 1 1/2 cup of diced pineapples,
1 cup of sliced beets, 1/4 cup of celery leaves, and 1 cup of water. Drink one or two cups of this juice per day. Only eat ripe, yellow pineapples. Green pineapples are dangerous and toxic for
humans, and can cause vomiting and diarrhea. Besides that, the acidity of this fruit can
also cause canker sores, stomatitis, and other sores in your mouth. If you have any of these conditions, avoid
eating pineapples. So, did you already know all the benefits
of this powerful fruit?
