Healing Properties of Pineapple: Pineapple Juice Is 5 Times More Effective Than Cough Syrup(BY ANYA VIEN)

5 Healing Properties of Pineapple

  • Healthy bones and cartilage. One portion of fresh pineapple contains 76% of the recommended daily dose of manganese. Manganese is an essential element for the growth of healthy bones and cartilage. Manganese is also important for the formation of collagen and the healing of wounds.
  • Treatment of gout. Gout is caused by accumulation of abnormal levels of uric acid in the blood causing joint inflammation.   Consumption of pineapple helps reduce the level of uric acid in the blood, thus effectively preventing painful aggravations associated with gout.
  • Anti-inflammatory. Bromelain is an enzyme that has anti-inflammatory properties. Bromelain helps the body get rid of toxins by fighting off inflammation which impacts all the tissues and organs in the body. Regular consumption of pineapple can help to treat mild forms of arthritis and sports injuries by reducing inflammation and pain. (You can find pineapple enzyme supplements here)  Bromelain also fights infections and bacteria. Thus, the juice from fresh pineapples can suppress coughs five times more effectively than cough syrup.
  • Aesthetic treatment.  Pineapple has vitamin C, Bromelain and Alpha hydroxy acid (or AHA) which are used as ingredients in many beauty products. The pulp of fresh pineapple can be used as a facial mask to soothe the skin. Vitamin C will help slow down the aging process and reduce wrinkles. Pineapple can also be used as an exfoliator to remove calluses and dry skin. Additionally, foods rich in manganese, as pineapple, will help you maintain healthy, glowing skin.
  • Weight loss and maintenance of weight.  Due to the fiber contained in pineapple, it takes more time to digest, thus causing a prolonged feeling of satiety.  Fiber also helps prevent constipation by stimulating bowel movement.

Surprising causes of high blood pressure, simple strategies to manage hypertension By: Bel Marra

How healthy is your blood pressure? And exactly what causes high blood pressure, anyway? It rises with each and every heartbeat and then falls as your heart relaxes between beats. It can change from minute to minute with exercise, stress, sleep, even your posture. The important thing is you want to keep it in the healthy range: Less than 120/80 mm Hg – less than 120 systolic and less than 80 diastolic – for adults age 20 and over. Most Americans, though, are reading closer to 140/90 or higher, which puts them in the high blood pressure range. That news is grim. The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that the proportion of Americans reporting they have high blood pressure rose nearly 10 percent from 2005 to 2009.

Furthermore, nearly one in three Americans has prehypertension – a condition which shows elevated blood…

Natural Remedy for Arthritis

Arthritis is a group of painful and degenerative conditions marked by inflammation in the joints that causes stiffness and pain. Osteoarthritis, the most common type of arthritis, gets worse with age and is caused by wear and tear over the years. Rheumatoid arthritis is caused by the immune system attacking the joints as if they were foreign tissues.
