Ayurveda – one of the world’s oldest medical systems, claims that whether you are healthy or not depends on the daily routine that you choose. That’s exactly why you should begin your day with some healthy morning rituals like for example consuming pineapple water on an empty stomach.
The micro-nutrients that this pineapple is rich in are exactly what your body needs. The organic pineapple is also a great source of antioxidant vitamin C and an enzyme called bromelain. They are both engaged in the body’s healing process.
Here are 10 reasons why you should drink pineapple water in the morning:
Fights Inflammation: The enzyme known as bromelain has anti-inflammatory properties. Bromelain has an excellent impact on the whole body, including all the organs and tissues, because it helps the body to remove the toxins and fights against inflammation. If you regularly consume pineapple, it will reduce the pain caused by sports injuries and arthritis.
Helps With Weight Loss: Pineapple is rich in fiber. Therefore, it takes more time to be digested and in that way it causes prolonged feeling of satiety. If you drink pineapple water every morning you will totally forget about fat and sugar cravings. Thiamine improves your metabolism system because it helps your body convert carbohydrates into energy.
Flashes Parasites from Intestines and Liver: Bromelain also has anti-parasitic properties. Many studies have proved that consuming pineapple for three days will kill tape worms.
Regulates the Thyroid: The iodine and bromelain contained in pineapples can effectively improve some autoimmune disorders. Therefore, it is very effective in easing symptoms connected with thyroiditis.
Balances Electrolytes: The potassium contained in the pineapple strengthens our body and help it maintain the proper balance of electrolytes and prevents cramps or other injuries.
Removes Heavy Metals and Toxins: Pineapple is rich in fiber, antioxidants and many enzymes that can do wonders in removing the heavy metals and toxins and detox your body.
Works as a Digestive Aid: The body digests proteins more efficiently with the help of bromelain in pineapples
Strengthens Gums, Whitens and Preserves Teeth: Many studies have revealed that pineapple acts as strain remover thanks to the bromelain. This enzyme also efficiently breaks up plaque.
Improves Vision: The beta carotene and vitamin A contained in the pineapple is excellent for our eyesight.
According to a recent study, if we eat three or more servings of pineapple every day, we can effectively prevent age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), which is the number one cause of vision loss in older people.
According to a recent study, the bromelain contained in the pineapple can successfully prevent and fight against cancer. It was even proven that this enzyme is superior to the chemo-agent 5-fluorauracil.
