Why Adding Pineapple Juice To Your Daily Intake Is More Beneficial Than You Think; Besides The Obvious
Not all fruit is treated equally. And while you may remember the viral post of Kim Kardashian Instagram in her one-piece saying Google the benefits of pineapple juice, we decided to dig a little deeper and put it to the test. Besides the fact that pineapple and pineapple juice is one of our favorite tropical fruits, we did a little more research and found out pineapple juice has a lot more benefits than just making your “juices” smell and taste better.
Benefits of Pineapple Juice:
A remedy to alleviate menstrual cramps
Come to find out, pineapple juice has an enzyme called Bromelain. Bromelain has analgesic properties that can help women who suffer from uncomfortable or painful periods. This alone makes us want to drink during those rough periods! Bromelain seems to work by triggering the body’s production of substances that fight pain and reduce swelling, and it contains chemicals that prevent the blood from clotting.
According to one study, pineapple can be useful in the treatment of sports injuries, thanks to the anti-inflammatory properties of bromelain. Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme, which means it’s a mixture of enzymes that digest protein. Its anti-inflammatory properties include the reduction of swelling and bruising.
Fertility Perks + Clear Skin
Pineapple juice contains several beneficial vitamins and minerals, including a full dose of vitamin B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, and C, beta carotene, copper, zinc, and folate. Many of these can help boost fertility in both men and women. With all of these packed in goods, it becomes a natural cleanser and helps get rid of toxins in your system. You can also apply it as a toner or leave it to dry on your skin to help with acne and inflammation.
Fresh Breathe Look Out!
Since Pineapple juice contains a high amount of vitamin C which can help to strengthen the gums and keep your teeth healthy and strong. Vitamin C also helps in preventing plaque formation and reduces the risk of periodontal diseases and gingivitis as they restrict bacterial activities. This does not mean you don’t have to go to the dentist anymore but if it does all the above, your dentist will be happy and so will your mouth!
We decided to test pineapple juice on ourselves, and so far - it is all true! Whether you are home, traveling or somewhere tropical - we highly advise to add some pineapple juice to your daily intake. Aim for the more natural juice or the actual fruit. Get a blender or juicer (possibly add some rum or Tito’s vodka) and enjoy.
