From the fruit of the pineapple, scientific name Ananassa sativa of the Bromeliaceae family, we obtain a herbal remedy in the form of mother tincture. This mother tincture is characterized by a draining action, is able to stimulate the metabolism and has digestive and remineralizing properties thanks to the presence of mineral salts such as manganese, potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus and iodine.
In addition to this, bromelain, especially present in the pineapple stem, has also an anti-inflammatory and anti-edematous action. The mother tincture of pineapple therefore lends itself to be used to fight overweight and obesity, water retention, heavy legs, cellulite, swollen and painful joints, digestive problems but also to tone the body in the period of convalescence and to counteract and soothe inflammations. You can take 40 drops of mother tincture in a little water a quarter of an hour before main meals.
Alternatively, there is also the dry extract, that should be taken in capsules before the main meals. Be careful if you are taking anticoagulants as interactions may occur.
