In 2010 a group of Indian researchers discovered just a few years ago that pineapple juice was an effective treatment for tuberculosis when mixed with salt, pepper, and raw honey.

The mixture is able to offer recovery from cold and cough symptoms up to 5 times faster than mass-produced cough syrups bought over the counter.

The main component of pineapple juice that operates as the active ingredient is an enzyme called bromelain. It functions as an antioxidant, helps decrease swelling, and kills bacteria. Pineapple juice in its raw form also provides half of the daily recommended dose of vitamin C, which is critical for fighting against seasonal throat and sinus conditions.
