You Are What You Eat!
At least, that’s what the saying is. A while back I heard a rumor, that if you consume pineapple, it can make your vagina taste sweet. Yes, it seems like an outrageous claim, but if asparagus can make your pee smell then why not, right?
For numerous reasons I was curious about this claim. Pineapple is one of those foods that is filled with impressive health benefits. It is well known for containing a digestive enzyme known as bromelain. Bromelain is excellent at breaking down protein molecules and assisting small intestine absorption. Pineapple may boost absorption for those who have digestive enzyme deficiencies (or pancreas insufficiency). Pineapple is also loaded with nutrients and vitamins. It is high in vitamin C, vitamin A, and vitamin K. It also has manganese, magnesium, zinc, folate, and calcium. Being such a nutrient dense food filled with significant vitamin C it is also an incredible anti-inflammatory food. It may help fight arthritis, boost the immune system, and general inflammation throughout the body. It’s an easy food to get into your diet regularly and can make a significant difference to your digestive and immune systems. Knowing all of these pineapple fun facts, why not test out the sweet coochie claim?!
Are the Rumors True?
That would be a disappointing nope! Sorry…I had high hopes too. Whoever started this rumor should be reprimanded. Unfortunately, another crazy claim bites the dust!
The general consensus from testing out this theory was that the only way it would make any difference, was if you were to consume an absurd amount of pineapple. I’m talking about eating an entire pineapple a day, but even then it’s only a theory, and far from a guarantee. Well, I guess not a total loss, my system got a huge vitamin C boost and my immune system is ready for the Fall Season transition.
