I grew up questioning everything around me including the health industry, the deeper I go the more I resonate towards the holistic lifestyle. While most people run to the store for over-the-counter meds packed with artificial dyes and chemicals, I prefer to go all-natural and avoid the harmful side effects of commercially available products.
When it comes to the best natural remedy for cough I strongly recommend pineapple juice, which is one of most wonderful healing food to soothe persistent cough or sore throat.
In 2010 Indian researchers tested the effectiveness of natural substances such as pineapple juice to treat tuberculosis. They found that a mixture of pineapple juice with raw honey, pepper and salt work extremely well to dissolve mucus and soothe a persistent cough. Patients recovered up to 5 times quicker with this all natural pineapple remedy compared to OTC cough syrup.
Benefits of Pineapple Juice
Pineapple contains a powerful enzyme called bromelain which acts as an antioxidant to reduce inflammation and swelling of the sinuses. It eliminates bacteria and fights infections.
1 cup of pure pineapple juice contains 50% of your daily recommendation of vitamin C, another powerful antioxidant to strengthen your immune system and soothe a sore throat or cough.
