Pineapple while sweet and satisfying can be a real benefit when recovery from surgery. The active ingredient within pineapple is Bromelain, a natural enzyme found within the stem and juice of this fruit. Bromelain has been proven to reduce swelling and inflammation, especially after rhinoplasty.
Benefits of bromelain also include:
- Cancer prevention and reduce cancer therapy symptoms
- Help treat ulcerative colitis
- Help sinusitis symptoms
- Helps rid the body of fats, helps with digestion
- Relieves joint and muscle pain
You can take 1,000 mg. of a Bromelain enzyme, twice a day for 2 weeks before, and 2 weeks post surgery to help prepare your body for surgery so you can have a pleasant recovery.
As an added benefit, pineapple can keep your teeth pearly white, as it is a natural plaque fighter and stain remover.
