Attention parents: Use pineapple juice to fight unwanted mucus and coughing instead of conventional cough syrup

This article was originally published by Natural News

What if there was something sweet and natural available right in the produce aisle of the grocery store that could eradicate mucus and cough five times faster than nasty cough syrup?

What if this hidden food-medicine could improve the immune system, instead of making you irritable, groggy and unable to quickly recover from sickness?

Doctors may not prescribe it, but it’s still a timeless remedy to help improve digestion, reduce inflammation and dispel mucus and cough. It’s called bromelain, an enzyme found in pineapples.

Natural enzyme bromelain soothes cough five times faster than cough syrup

Bromelain improves digestion, helping the body utilize nutrients in the pineapple and in other foods. By reducing inflammation in the body, pineapple juice helps a sick body quickly overcome a cough, because the cough is made more productive, helping to expel mucus. A cough and mucus don’t have to be a nagging burden for days or even weeks. Under the influence of bromelain and other natural anti-inflammatory substances (such as ginger and turmeric), a cough serves its rightful purpose and quickly dissipates.

Pineapple juice can be used as part of a holistic strategy to prevent a worsening infection, to stop sickness in its tracks, and to prevent further respiratory problems. Pineapple juice can keep your family out of the hospital and away from prescriptions that lower the body’s long-term immune response.

One case study shows that when pineapple juice is mixed with raw honey, cayenne pepper and salt, it can effectively dissolve mucus in the lungs of patients with tuberculosis. Studies also show that raw pineapple extract can dissolve mucus five times faster than over-the-counter cough syrups, helping people recover from sickness four times more quickly.

Prescription pill made her cough persist for weeks

I remember a time when I was dating a young, beautiful lady (whom I married a year later). That winter she had the most nagging, persistent cough. A recurring tickle in her throat caused her to reflexively cough, nonstop. It went on day after day, for three excruciating weeks. When I realized that she was taking a prescription pill to stop the cough, I pointed out that it obviously wasn’t working, and asked her to stop taking it.

The day after she stopped taking that pill, her cough diminished – further deepening my suspicions
about synthetic drugs. I had already figured out that cough syrups were hardly effective at all, while being notorious for making people irritable and sleepy.

Deep down I knew that this was not how pure medical science should work – weakening the body, causing persistent problems, and making one more prone to infection in the long run. Real medicine works with the body’s integrated systems, delivering nutrition, enzymes and powerful, plant-based healing molecules to the cells. Over time, as we awakened to this simple fact, we began including various herbs, roots, berries, flowers, fruits, nuts and seeds in our lifestyle to restore our bodies to the vessels of innate healing that they are supposed to be.

Medicinal pineapple lemonade: a powerful tonic

One of our favorite drinks over the past few years is what we call medicinal pineapple-lemonade. It’s not only tasty, but it also serves as a blast of nutrition that can serve many practical healing purposes. If there are any signs of a cough developing, we are quick to drink medicinal pineapple-lemonade to halt sickness before it takes hold.

The recipe includes the following:

  • Fresh ginger root, about the size of a thumb
  • 8 whole lemons
  • 5 T of raw honey
  • 1 tsp stevia extract (plant-based sweetener)
  • 4 cups of filtered water


  1. Run the ginger, lemons and pineapple through a juicer.
  2. Add the fresh juice, purified water, raw honey, stevia and ice to a blender.
  3. Allow it to blend and then drink as much as you like! The only side effect is
    that it will give you a rush of real, sustaining energy!

Medicinal pineapple lemonade is a must for anyone who feels a cough coming on. It’s a great hydrating beverage that is full of vitamin C, prebiotics and anti-inflammatory enzymes like bromelain that eliminate the mucus and halt bacterial and viral infections in their tracks.

How to Wipe Out Chronic Inflammation (Free Book)


In April, 2009, researchers stunned the medical community when they reported chronic inflammation as the root cause of several major diseases.

See, every year 610,000 people in the U.S. die of heart disease. Cancer claims another 584,000...stroke 130,000...Alzheimer's disease nearly 85,000 — and the list goes on.

Truth is, we now know... chronic inflammation is responsible for 7 out of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States! Hundreds of studies and scientific reviews prove it.
