Pineapple is one of the most popular fruit in the world because of its health benefits, but many people don’t know that pineapple peels also contain amazing benefits.
Aside from enjoying the benefits of pineapple juice, fermented pineapple skin drink offers many health benefits. This is because pineapple peel composition contains vitamin B, C, folate, thiamin, pantothenic acid, bromelain, niacin, and fiber
Bromelain, a powerful enzyme found in high concentrations in pineapple skin and stems, helps to cut down inflammation in the body. It’s been touted for reducing swelling after surgery or injury and works as an anti-inflammatory in the sinuses and throughout the body.
Not only do the peels serve to make digestion smoother, but they’ve also been found to help fight intestinal parasites, constipation, and possibly IBS symptoms. They also build up healthy gut flora.
The high levels of vitamin C in the pineapple and its skin prevent and fight infections. The power of bromelain and vitamin C act as a bacteria fighter, mucus cutter, cough suppressant, wound healer, and overall system booster in the body.
Arthritis and Joint Pain Fighter
Here again, bromelain works its anti-inflammatory magic in those who have arthritis or joint pain. Mixing up a potion with pineapple peels works directly on the source of the pain. Check out how to make a topical remedy below.
Beta carotene and vitamin C present in the entire plant aid in battling degenerative eye diseases like glaucoma.
Dental and Bone Strengthener
In addition to fighting inflammation in gums and tissues, pineapple skins have a high manganese content. Manganese helps to grow, strengthen, and repair bones and teeth. In terms of oral health, its vitamin C and astringent properties keep gums clean and healthy.
Some early studies have shown that skins’ amounts of manganese, vitamin C, bromelain, and antioxidants have the ability to fight tumors and aid in cancer prevention.
Bromelain helps with preventing blood clots from forming, and the copper content in pineapple juice increases the formation of healthy red blood cells. Bits of potassium help the blood vessels stay healthy and can counteract large amounts of sodium, enabling the blood pressure to be stable.
Women who are looking to conceive usually pay close attention to their diet. Pineapple gets a lot of love because of its beta carotene and bromelain. Reducing inflammation in the womb helps create an ideal environment for implantation. Having warm liquids like the tea or broth listed below also support healthy fertility, and a pineapple dessert certainly wouldn’t hurt either.
