Why is Pineapple Good for the Immune System?
This recipe brings some heavy immune-supporting hitters to the plate, starting with pineapple. Why is pineapple good for the immune system? This fruit may help soothe sore throat symptoms often associated with a cold thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also packed with vitamin C, a known superhero against infection (1).
Also present in pineapple is the enzyme bromelain. Studies show that it has the ability to break down mucus, helping reduce congestion and inflammation in the sinuses and respiratory tract. It’s a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, proven to act therapeutically in a whole host of medical conditions, and encourages apoptotic cell death (2). In short, it’s pretty badass.
Ginger and Turmeric Tea Benefits
On their own, turmeric and ginger are well-documented to have significant effects on the immune system. A traditional, and effective, method of delivery for both is tea.
Ginger and turmeric tea benefits are many. Ginger is known to not only boost the immune system but to ease pain, improve digestion, and reduce both blood sugar and cholesterol levels (3). Turmeric on its own is also known to reduce pain, combat inflammation, and support immune function (4).
Research also suggests that turmeric may help prevent atherosclerosis, reduce the recurrence of ulcerative colitis, improve digestion by way of stimulating bile production, and help prevent and treat several types of cancer (5). Combined, ginger and turmeric give you a double dose of immune-boosting goodness!
More Immune-Boosting Tea Ingredients
To make this cold-busting tea even more effective, I’ve added some more immune-boosting tea ingreadients to this recipe. Black pepper boosts the active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin, by as much as 2000% which magnifies its immune-system-benefitting effects significantly (6).
Lemon also brings vitamin C into the mix with its antiviral and antibacterial properties, helping to support your immune system just when it needs it most.
Even that optional dash of cayenne pepper is here to help. They’re known to spur the circulatory system into hyperdrive by increasing blood flow, which helps the blood deliver immune cells more quickly to the areas under attack from that cold.

The Kuvings REVO830 is a cold press juicer that gets the job done fast. Seasoned juicers know that “cold press” and “fast” don’t typically go together, but thanks to its dual-feed produce hopper the REVO830 makes it happen.
