      Default Pineapple Juice

      I've heard that drinking/eating Pineapple and Pineapple juice can help prevent swelling after extractions. Is there any truth to this?

      Thanks!

      Hi,

      I found this -

      Pineapple: The raw juice of this plant contains the enzyme bromelain. Bromelain has been shown to have gentle anti-inflammatory properties. Swish the raw juice around the site of a tooth extraction to reduce swelling or eat a frozen pineapple juice pop to soothe a sore throat.

      It was on this site -

      Pineapples are quite sugary though, aren't they. But I guess that tooth wouldn't be around to get decayed anymore *

      Hope that helps, good luck *
