When I was a kid I used to love drinking pineapple juice, especially the little cans of Dole pineapple juice.  Of course now I just make my own fresh pineapple juice by tossing chopped organic pineapple in a NutriBullet or juicer.  This is one of my all time favorite pineapple juice drinks.

BENEFITS OF PINEAPPLE JUICE

There are a lot of health benefits of drinking pineapple juice!

Drinking pineapple juice is a good habit to get into.  It’s a good source of vitamin c (which helps support the immune system) and magnesium (which is essential for proper nerve and muscle function).  Pineapple contains a nutrient called bromelain which has anti-inflammatory properties and helps support digestion by breaking down protein. (1)    Limes are also a good source of Vitamin C, and contain flavonoid compounds that have antioxidant and anti-cancer properties. Ginger is a potent anti-inflammatory and it stimulates digestion and aids in proper absorption of nutrients from foods. (2) As for turmeric, it’s in the ginger family and it also provides anti-inflammatory benefits.  (3)

PINEAPPLE JUICE NUTRITION

  • Eight ounces of unsweetened pineapple juice contains about 130 calories. 
  • It provides about 30 mg of magnesium, 25 mg of vitamin C  and 0.78 mg of iron. 

DETOX JUICE CLEANSE

Detox juices are a healthy tool to use to gently cleanse the body and shed a few unwanted pounds.  It’s important, however, to consume pineapples in moderation because it does contain fructose, which can cause blood sugar spikes. Rather than drinking this detox juice straight-up in one shot, I prefer to fill a glass a third full of the juice, add a fistful of crushed ice, then fill the remaining with water or coconut water.  I will drink several glasses of this detox juice in smaller diluted portions throughout the day. It’s also good to eat a handful of almonds when drinking fruit juices for the plant protein to help balance sugar levels to keep them from spiking.  This Pineapple Ginger Cleansing Juice is a perfect juice to add to your Daily Detox Diet.

IS PINEAPPLE JUICE ACIDIC

Yes.  Most fruits are acidic and pineapple juice is one of them.  If you have acid reflux, your doctor may suggest that you limit your intake of pineapple or pass on it altogether.   Citrus fruits also contain high levels of acid and bananas and melons are fruits with less acidity.  On the pH scale, pineapple scores somewhere between 3 and 4.  Anything higher than 7 is alkaline, with anything between 4 and 7 being neutral.
