The pineapple, that miracle fruit, has so many medicinal healing properties for the health of your body. It’s loaded with many vitamins and minerals and has so much fiber. It’s been known to help colds and coughs, strengthen bones, aids in digestion. It’s good for your eyes.
It reduces the symptoms of arthritis. It can prevent hypertension. It reduces the risk of blood clots. It contains many antioxidants. It can prevent nausea, help stress, give you energy, help your acne, as well as thicken your hair.
And you’re probably wondering, what is it in this pineapple that has so many different healing properties for the health and wealth of our body? There is an enzyme called bromelaine. And bromelaine is a proteolytic enzyme. It helps digest proteins.
Now, think about this. Everything in our body is made up of proteins, our hair, our nails, our skin, our muscles. But it also has amazing, strong antiinflammatory properties as well. And bromelaine is known to help reduce sinusitis, osteoarthritis, inflammation, to autoimmune problems.
It has anticancerous effects. It helps enhance your digestion. It will help cleanse the arteries, lower blood pressure. And if you’re also looking to lose the weight and shed those pounds, the enzyme in bromelain can increase the speed at which the body digests fats.
So let’s get to the nuts and bolts. You take your pineapple, you put it in your mouth, you start chewing on it. It may be nice and cold and sweet. You’re chewing on that fiber. Some people may experience a tingling sensation, quite common.
What’s happening? The bromelain in the pineapple is starting to digest you. The mucosa in your mouth, your lips, your cheeks, your tongue, you may notice after eating the pineapple, eating a lot of it, or chewing it for a long time, it becomes very sensitive.
Sometimes you may get a little sore in there. It may become raw. Now, pineapple has citric acid along with bromelain. It’s not the citric acid that causes the burning.
It’s the bromelaine that’s eating your mouth, digesting the proteins of the mucosa and within your mouth, because that’s made up of protein, and that’s what’s causing the skin or mucosa inside of your mouth to feel sore and tender.
Now, the irritation you’re experiencing in your mouth will go away within a couple of hours. And at most, maybe by the next morning, most of you won’t even have that irritation. But if you are sensitive to pineapple. A little trick for you, eat it with another protein.
If you eat it with yogurt, the enzymes in the pineapple will start working on the yogurt as well as your mouth, but you probably will not experience any symptoms at all. Now this is very important. There are two sides to the bromelaine.
One side is if you eat the bromelaine with other foods, particularly proteins, your digestion is going to be much better because this is a proteolytic enzyme that digests proteins. Great for digestion, but if you take the enzyme by itself in between meals, it will look for other proteins like scar tissue problems in the arteries. That’s how it can help clean your arteries.
That’s how it can get rid of scar tissue, maybe in your joints, because the proteases or the proteolytic enzymes are looking for proteins. And if there’s food, it will digest food. But if there’s no food, it will start digesting scar tissue and other conditions that you may be experiencing.
