    Default Pineapple's Amazing Healing Properties Revealed

    Enjoyed the world over as something of an icon of the tropical experience, the pineapple was used in indigenous medicine for a wide range of ailments; uses that are only now being confirmed by modern scientific methods.

    While most know pineapple as an exceptionally delicious tropical fruit, indigenous peoples used it to treat a variety of ailments. Unfortunately, much of this intimate plant knowledge was considered by early anthropologists to be based on mere "superstition" and subsequently disregarded, so few in the modern world have been made aware of its formidable healing powers.

    Thankfully, research on the medicinal properties of pineapple has steadily accumulated over the past few decades, to the point where the conventional medical system has been compelled to take notice.

    Over the years, I've consumed pineapple because it's great for digestion, especially after a large protein meal. This is one of the benefits of the bromelain. However, I was unware that the pineapple leaf has anti-diabetic properties and helps to modulate cholesterol. Very informative article!!

    I could incorporate the leaves in juicing or smoothies, but wonder how pesticide-laden they are. I have never seen any labeled organic!

    I have purchased organic pineapples, but there are GMO pineapples out there too! So, you're right not to buy it if not labeled organic.

    I have seen organic pineapples, but they are more seasonal. I wonder if a tea can be brewed from the leaves and it retain the same insulin sensitizing properties. By the way, a pineapple is not a single unit of fruit. It is rather a conglomeration of dozens of fused berries. Just saying.

    Are you sure about passionfruit, Maurya? It doesn't seem like that type of fruit, given that the outer rind contains a pulpy juice with lots of seeds.

    Brazilians drink a lot of passionfruit juice, and they make mousse from its juice, too. Passionfruit is called maracuja, with the last syllable (the stressed syllable, btw) pronounced more or less like zhah. The j is different in Portuguese than in Spanish.

    Over the years i was sure that pine apple would be good as they are high on fibres and are also the fat emulsifiers in the form of enzymes they produce. They are great for fitness as well.
