Health Benefits Of Pineapple Juice Recipes
Pineapple is well-known as an anti-inflammatory aid. This is due to the Bromelain content. Bromelain is an enzyme that helps to reduce inflammation and swelling (and therefore pain) in all kinds of conditions, from arthritis and gout to sore throats. It can also help you with a shorter recovery time after surgery.
The manganese in pineapple helps with the strengthening of bones in both older and younger folk.
The Bromelain in pineapple also functions as a digestive aid. The fiber can also be helpful here.
Pineapple can contribute to general heart health, as it may help to reduce the plaque that causes problems within arteries. This also means that it can improve circulation.
The health benefits even include being a mood enhancer!
Due to the high vitamin C level, it functions as a general immune system enhancer and will also help to keep your mouth healthy. Bacteria will have a tougher time finding a hold in your body, if you are regularly drinking pineapple juice!
If you do have a cold or sinusitis, the Bromelain can also help to break down thick mucus.
A word of warning, though: People with ailments related to blood clotting (such as haemophilia), should discuss making use of pineapple juice recipes with their health care practitioner first. Pineapple may have an effect on the way blood coagulates in your body. Folks with blood sugar issues, should also take care, as pineapples are quite high in sugar. It is always a good idea to mix sweet fruits with veggies that are lower in sugar, when preparing juicing recipes.
