According to research, pineapple juice is five times stronger than cough syrup and better in dealing with the problem. Pineapples contain bromelain, an enzyme that has anti-inflammatory properties and eliminates bacteria and infections.

Just a cup of pineapple juice daily will get you 50% of the daily recommended intake of vitamin C, a vitamin that works to implement the use of crucial enzymes in the body that regulate metabolism and energy convulsion. Pineapple juice is also rich in manganese, a mineral that helps in the building of connective tissue and bones. Manganese helps the body absorb calcium, carbohydrates and fats and improve the nerve functions as well.

Bromelain is sometimes absorbed by the body intact, meaning that it has effects outside the digestive tract. It is often advertised as a natural anti-inflammatory solution for arthritis. In Germany, bromelain has been approved for treatment of inflammation and swelling on the nose and sinuses due to surgery and it’s an incredibly popular supplement.

Pineapple juice can also help you with persistent cough and has all the required nutrients to fight cold. But, the list doesn’t end there – pineapple juice can cure a sore throat and help the body expel mucus naturally.

A study published in the “Der Pharma Chemica” in 2010 examined beneficial treatments for tuberculosis patients and discovered that raw pineapple juice, pepper, salt and honey was a powerful combination that helped patients. Furthermore, another study confirmed that raw pineapple extracts can decrease mucus five times faster than all the other available syrups. Patients have recovered exactly 4.8 times faster and experienced reduced symptoms quickly.

You should always try and find unsweetened, raw pineapple juice and avoid the canned one. It’s best if you juiced the pineapple yourself in order to take advantage of its benefits.

Here’s the recipe for this amazing juice:


1 cup of fresh pineapple juice

1 cup of ginger

1 tablespoon of raw honey

¼ of a cup of fresh lemon juice

Half a teaspoon of cayenne pepper


Mix all the ingredients together and your drink is ready. Drink ¼ of a cup every day for 2-3 times for best results.
