Pineapple juices has tons of benefits that include:
1. Anti-Inflammatory Properties
Pineapple contains bromelain, which is a powerful enzyme that has many surprising and helpful properties. One of the main benefits of bromelain is that it speeds healing by reducing inflammation. Bromelain also minimizes the occurrence of bruising, which is particularly beneficial for recovery from surgery.

Another wonderful effect of bromelain is that it aids in overall digestion and helps fight nausea. Bromelain may help to breakdown protein faster, improving the speed of digestion. In addition to bromelain, pineapples also contain a high content of water and fiber, which can help ease constipation, a common complication after surgery. Post-op patients are particularly prone to nausea and may even lose their appetite. However, it is very important to eat after surgery so that your body may begin healing and regain strength. The Post-Op Bundle after surgery may give your body the little boost it needs to start feeling normal again.
