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.
They discovered that this mixture actually soothes a sore throat while dissolving mucus. Astonishingly, it allows relief from cough symptoms up to 5 times faster than cough syrups.
The main ingredient in pineapple juice that allows this to happen is called bromelain. It decreases swelling, and kills bacteria.
What is also interesting to know is pineapple juice in its raw form gives us half of the daily recommended dose of vitamin C!
This is a must have for flu season, don’t you think?
