Pineapple Juice 500% More Effective Than Cough Syrup

Pineapple is a mouth-watering tropical fruit, well-known for centuries, by its exceptional taste and its amazing health benefits:

  • Boosting the immune system and respiratory health,
  • Helping digestion,
  • Strengthening bones,
  • Reducing inflammation,
  • Curing coughs and colds, and
  • Losing weight.

Fresh pineapples contain an essence known as Bromelain that has anti-inflammatory uniqueness combating infections and removes bacteria.

What it is so effective, even 500% more than any kind of cough syrups?

Half your daily dose of vitamin C

Nutritionists found that one glass of pineapple juice contains just about half the amount of vitamin C that is required per day. Vitamin C is vital complex in the body and is used for many purposes, enabling the body to create certain vital enzymes that control the metabolism and control energy.

A great source of manganese

As it contains Bromelain and vitamin C, pineapple juice is also a good source of the manganese, a mineral that helps your body to make the most of its absorption of calcium. It also helps to convert the carbohydrates and fats into energy, as well as facilitating healthy nerve function.

Bromelain has a powerful anti-inflammatory

The body directly absorbs a certain quantity of the Bromelain from the pineapple juice, which lessens the irritation and relieves conditions, such as arthritis. In Germany Bromelain is particularly approved for treating irritation and swelling of the nose, particularly after the sinus surgery.

Pineapple juice combats mucus

Calming the irritation of horrible coughs and helping to release up mucus is an advantage of the pineapple juice. The researchers in 2010 found that it helps tuberculosis patients.

The result concluded that the combination of natural pineapple juice, salt, pepper, and honey helps to soften mucus that congregates in the lungs when it is taken daily.

Fast acting in cough relief

Lately conducted studies have concluded that extract from natural pineapple juice gets rid of mucus, and comparing with the other cough medicines, it is even five times faster.


In case of an irritating cough, the best result can be seen by using natural pineapple rather than a cough medicine. The pineapple juice doesn’t have any nasty toxic elements and is less expensive than some medicine.

Why not homemade juice?

When buying the pineapple juice from the store, pay attention to its containment as some of them can include added sugar. A healthier option is to go for the natural unsweetened selection, which can be found on sale in most good supermarkets.

However, for any holistic health lifestyle lovers, the juicer in the house will allow you to make fresh pineapple juice at home at any time.
