And it is none other than PINEAPPLE!
If you have persistent coughs and it’s not something serious like pneumonia, reach for pineapple juice instead of cough syrup. It is easy on the pocket, has no toxic chemicals and contains the nutrients that will help fight a cold.
Pineapples contain ‘Bromelain’, an enzyme with great anti-inflammatory properties. It fights infections and kills bacteria. Fresh pineapple juice can conquer coughs more effectively than any cough syrup in the world.
Drinking pineapple juice helps soothe a sore throat and aids the body to expel mucous easily. Thick and stubborn mucus in your lungs or sinuses can cause seemingly endless spasms of coughing , sneezing and painful infections. Researchers have attempted to find beneficial treatments for patients who have tuberculosis also. They discovered that a combination of raw pineapple juice, pepper, salt and honey given to patients every day helped to dissolve the mucus in the lungs.
Another study found that raw extracts from pineapple could decrease mucus five times faster than over-the-counter cough syrups.
