Pineapple Kasayam

Kasayam refers to a water decoction or water extract of a single herb or group of herbs or fruits and can be used for ailments like indigestion, cough and common cold etc. It is an ancient form of medicine that has been used for a long time.

Pineapples contain bromelain, an enzyme with anti-inflammatory properties. It fights infections and kills bacteria. - Drinking pineapple juice helps soothe a sore throat and aids the body to expel mucous easily. The bromelain present in pineapple also helps to calm cough arising due to the cold.
