Half of the recommended daily dose of vitamin C
According to nutritionists, 1 glass of pineapple juice contains half the amount of the recommended dosage of vitamin C that we need to intake every day. It is very essential for our body. We need it to control our energy and create some vital enzymes.

Pineapple is abundant in manganese. This mineral helps our body absorb calcium, but it also converts the fats and carbohydrates in energy. It’s amazing for our nerves.
Bromelain is a powerful anti-inflammatory
Pineapple juice supplies our body with bromelain that helps us against irritations or inflammatory conditions like for example arthritis. Doctors from Germany especially recommend patients to intake bromelain in cases of sinus surgery.
Pineapple juice fights mucus
Coughs can be really terrible. They can cause the appearance of mucus, but pineapple juice can help us. It was confirmed by a research on patients with tuberculosis in 2010.
They were given a combo of salt, natural pineapple juice, honey and pepper. The mucus softened and they were able to eliminate it fast.
