    Raw pineapple juice is good for type 2 diabetics if it is mixed with Jerusalem Artichoke juice. This fresh juice cocktail helps to stabilize blood sugar levels in by restoring balance to the endocrine system.

    any ready to drink bottled juice at the market has been pasteurized to extend shelf life and destroy microbes….the heating involved in pasteurization kills all enzymes such as bromelain as well as destroying vitamins in the pineapple juice thereby practically eliminating all therapeutic benefit for rheu. arthritis. It needs to be fresh squeezed.

    Any raw juice consumed 30 minutes before meals is not fattening.
