The true powerhouse of nature!

Pineapple, the spiny fruit with spiky edges on its leaves, has more hidden talents than being just juicy and sweet. It is a real powerhouse of nature, with abundant  vitamins and enzymes that can even alleviate inflammation and illness. If you drink pineapple juice every day, you'll be surprised how much good it does your body. Here are 10 benefits you can get from a  pineapple that you probably never knew about.


1.  Less inflammation


Pineapple has an enzyme in it called bromelain. It has the ability to reduce inflammation and eliminate  poisons in the body that attack the organs.

2.  Weight loss  


Drinking pineapple juice on an empty stomach can reduce the craving for sweets. Pineapple has thiamin in it, which converts carbohydrates quickly into energy, thus kick-starting the metabolism.

3. Protects against liver and intestinal parasites  


The enzyme  bromelain  from the fruit also has anti-parasitic properties.  It's even possible to kill intestinal parasites with concentrated doses of pineapple juice.

4.  Fewer thyroid problems

The fruit not only contains  bromelain  but also iodine, which when taken regularly can help sufferers of thyroiditis combat the inflammation, helping the  organ to improve its function.  

5.  Reduced risk of injury


Pineapple is also a good source of potassium, which stabilises the body's electrolytes. By regularly consuming potassium, one has fewer muscle cramps during physical activity. This reduces the  risk of  incurring injuries.

6.  Fewer toxins
