10 Amazing Ways Your Body Changes After Drinking Pineapple Water for A Whole Year

10 Amazing Ways Your Body Changes After Drinking Pineapple Water for A Whole Year

People are always looking for new ways to improve their health that require little to no extra effort. Some choose to add supplemental vitamins to their diets, or they may change their eating habits altogether. What if I told you that you can greatly improve your health by drinking pineapple water every morning, before anything else?

Pineapples have many micro nutrients that your body needs, as well as vitamin C, which we all know is important for the body. By drinking pineapple juice every morning for a year, you can help your body in the following 10 ways.

1. You will have less inflammation.

Pineapples have an enzyme in them called Bromelain, which has anti-inflammatory characteristics. The bromelain will destroy inflammatory toxins, which are a danger to all of the body’s organs.

2. You will experience greater weight loss.

By drinking pineapple water on an empty stomach, you will feel fuller, experience less sugar cravings, and be more energized. Pineapples also contain thiamine, which converts carbohydrates into energy, thereby boosting your metabolism.

3. You will be less prone to liver and intestinal parasites.

The bromelain found in the pineapple also has anti-parasitic characteristics. For example, you can destroy tapeworms that are inside your body with the consumption of pineapple in only three days.

4. You will experience less problems with your thyroid.

Pineapples are perfect for people who experience autoimmune disorders, thanks to the bromelain and iodine it contains. People who suffer from thyroiditis can regulate their thyroid gland by regularly consuming pineapples.

5. You will have less cramps and sports related injuries.

Pineapples are a good source of potassium, which balances the bodies electrolytes, and makes the body stronger. You may experience less cramps and sports related injuries by simply drinking pineapple water on a regular basis, and/or before engaging in physical activity.

6. You will have fewer toxic substances in your body.

The antioxidants, enzymes and fibers that are found in pineapples are some of the best detox ingredients. By drinking pineapple water, you keep your body cleansed from toxic substances and heavy metals.

7. You will experience better digestion.

The bromelain and fiber that are found in pineapple will help aid in the digestion of proteins in your body and keep you regular.

8. You will have healthier teeth and gums.

The bromelain in pineapple is very effective in fighting stains and plaque. By drinking pineapple water, you may notice whiter teeth, as well as healthier and stronger teeth and gums.

9. You’ll notice improved vision.

Pineapple contains both vitamin A and beta-carotene, which both help promote improved eyesight. By simply taking in three servings of pineapple a day, you help to prevent age-related macular degeneration (AMD for short). This basically means you will greatly reduce the chances of vision loss when you get older.

10. You will reduce your chances of cancer.

Believe it or not, some studies have shown pineapples to be more effective than chemotherapy in treating cancer in animals. For example, the website Global Research commented on these remarkable results, first published in the journal Planta Medica.

Drinking pineapple water is a no brainer if you want to experience a healthier lifestyle. Of course, there are many more benefits to drinking pineapple water beyond these 10 listed. If you want to make your own pineapple water at home, you should check out this quick recipe. You can always scale down the recipe, especially since this one yields two gallons.

I challenge everyone who wants to take a step forward and improve their health to drink pineapple water every morning before you consume anything else (for best results) for one year. I look forward to hearing about all of your great results.

10 Simple Morning Exercises That Will Make You Feel Great All Day

10 Simple Morning Exercises That Will Make You Feel Great All Day

There are lots of studies that show if you do some exercise in the morning, you will be in a better mood all day long. You will have more energy and you will certainly be a better colleague, friend or partner.

One psychologist at Duke University has researched the effects of exercise on depressed patients and he has come to the conclusion that exercise has a definite role in treating this condition and has an important role in preventing people from relapsing.[1] According to the New York Times, scientists have now established that exercise also boosts your brain power.[2]

In addition, there are studies from the Appalachian State University which show that blood pressure can be reduced by doing regular morning exercise.[3]

Here are 10 simple morning exercises that will help you feel great the whole day long. You can include some of them in your morning exercise routine or do them all at home without having to enrol in a gym. Consult your doctor before starting any form of exercise routine if you are new to this.

1. Cat Camel Stretch

Stretching exercises are useful for muscle toning and also preventing arthritis. They can either be dynamic or static.

Dynamic ones such as the cat camel stretch, are particularly useful for doing other exercises in the morning. They are also beneficial at other times of the day, especially after long periods of sedentary work. This one is great for spinal flexibility and is a good warm up exercise.

Kneel down on all fours. Start by rounding your back just like a camel so that your head will try to meet your pelvis. This is the camel position. Then lower and lift your head so that your lower back is arched. This is the cat position. Do these movements slowly and smoothly. About 4 or 5 times.

Here’s a video to guide you through:

2. Go for a Walk or a Run

This is better done outside so that you can connect with nature but running inside on a treadmill is almost as good. You can time yourself and increase length and time according to your fitness program.

Always have new goals to reach. Start with brisk walking and work up to running. At my age, I am still walking!

The health benefits are considerable. You can build stronger bones and you can help to maintain your weight.

Also, you are helping your heart to stay healthy and keeping your blood pressure low.

3. Jumping Jacks

Michelle Obama is a great fan of this exercise and has become “Jumper in Chief.”[4] They are great for cardiovascular health and also for toning muscles especially the calves and the deltoids.

Stand with feet together. Jump while spreading your arms and legs. Return to first position and keep going! You can start with doing these for 1 minute and then gradually build up to the number you are comfortable with. Here’s how:

4. Abductor Side Lifts

Watch the video below to see how to do this exercise. These muscles are important because you use them everyday to run, get into the car or onto and off a bicycle. They are very important also for your core stability and prevent the pelvis from tilting.[5]

Do about 10 to 15 raises for each side like this:

5. Balancing Table Pose

This is a classic yoga pose. It benefits the spine, balance, memory and concentration.

Start with the table pose (hands and knees). Breathe in before starting each movement. As you exhale, raise your left leg parallel to the floor as you raise the right arm, also parallel to the floor. Breathe in as you lower arm and leg. Repeat for the other side. 10 repetitions on each side is a good starting point.

    6. Leg Squats

    Not just legs are involved but also hips and knees.

    Stand with your feet a bit further out from your hips. Arms are out in front of you. Then lower yourself as if you wanted to sit down until you reach a 90 degree angle. You can go down further if you want to. Then return to the starting position. Repeat 15 times for 2 sets for beginners.

    The benefits are that these exercises help with knee stability and can benefit the leg muscles such as quadriceps, hamstrings and calves.[6]

    7. Push Ups

    You start lying down (face down) but with your body held up at arm’s length. Your hands should be in line with your shoulders. Breathe in as you lower your body. That is fairly easy. Now, as you exhale, you have to get back up to the starting position.

    An easier version to start with is to bend your legs at the knees so you do not have to lift your whole body.

    Beginners may take up to a month to be able to do 100 push ups so you will have to start with a very small number and gradually increase it.

    This exercise is great for strengthening the chest, shoulders and the triceps. It is a great strengthening exercise for many muscle groups. In fact, most muscles from the toes to the shoulders are being used.

    8. Bicycle Crunches

    There are numerous crunch exercises targeting the abs. The bicycle crunch is a variation where you work more muscle groups. Aim for 15 to 20 reps to start off with.

    Watch the video to see how this is done correctly:

    9. Lunges

    Stand with feet shoulder width apart. Place your hand on your hips. Take one giant step forward with the right leg. Make sure the knee does not go too far forward, that is, past your toes. The left knee will go down to almost floor level. Alternate the legs as you go on.

    Try to do a set of between 8 and 12 reps for each leg. It is important to allow for a day of rest, so this exercise should be done on alternate days, especially if you are using weights.

    This exercise is great for strengthening and toning the quadriceps, glutes and hamstrings.

    10. Bicep Curls

    You can do this sitting down so if you spend a lot of time on the phone, this is a great exercise to do.

    Choose suitable dumbbells or another household object that you can easily hold. Sit down with the dumbbell in your hand. You need to sit forward a bit so that your triceps can lean on your thigh to give you support.

    Then bring the weighted arm up to shoulder length and then down again. Exhale as you lift the weight and inhale as you lower it.

    Here’re some important notes before you start doing this exercise:

    Try to do one or two sets of about ten repetitions for each arm and then switch arms.

    These exercises are really useful for toning the arm muscles.[7] In addition, they can strengthen and tone the brachioradialis muscle located in the forearm. These are the muscles we use to pick up things when we flex the arm at the elbow so we use these muscles countless times a day.

    You may have to build in a rest day for the heavier exercises, numbers 6–10. On the rest days, you can do gentler stretching exercises and also some walking or running.

    Morning exercise is not only a great mood booster, but will help you keep your weight down and also sleep better![8] Start including one or some of these exercises in your morning routine!
