28 Nov Could Pineapple help with Digestion?
Fresh Pineapple Juice
The natural enzymes found in pineapples provide you with many health benefits. Bromelain, a natural anti-inflammatory and digestive enzyme, reduces inflammation (i.e., digestive inflammation and sinusitis) and quickens the healing of abrasions and bruises, reports studies from the Langone Medical Center at New York University by breaking down proteins and flushing out toxins from the intestinal tract.
Pineapple juice also gives you a boost of Vitamins C (one serving contains 30-percent of your daily required intake) and works as an antioxidant to keep your immunity, connective tissues, skin, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels, and bones strong. Nutritionists recommend a fresh or canned pineapple juice with no added sugar or preservatives as the most healthful option.
