The enzyme bromelain in the pineapple starts the digestive process, thereby relieving gastrointestinal upset, improving circulation, stopping cramps and inhibiting inflammation. It may help rid the body of inflammatory compounds that contribute to arthritis. Pineapples also have diuretic properties and reduce perspiration, a process that helps flush toxins from the body.

Pineapples contain vitamin C, folic acid, potassium and dietary fiber. Other known active components are citric and additional fruit acids, as well as the valuable enzyme bromelain.

  • stomach disorders

Get the skin and the core and boil it in one gallon of water for 5 minutes. Let it cool down, then drain it and put the water in the fridge. Make fresh pineapple water every time you finish it. You can eat the fruit as well which helps for bowel movement. Drink the water all day, if you leave the house, put the water in a bottle and keep it with you.


Shopping tips

Buy ripe pineapple because the fruit does not mature after harvesting and only ripe, fresh fruit contains high concentration of nutrients, fruit acids and enzymes. Unfortunately, as a result of processing, canned pineapple loses most if its healing power. When picking a fresh pineapple, look for:

  • Golden reddish color
  • Slight give when squeezed, but without any soft spots
  • Fragrant aroma, not sour nor fermented
  • Fresh green crown
