I do agree that pineapple is one beautiful fruit. But like the other fruits, it does have its share of side effects in case you consume it in excess.
Consumption of pineapples can lead to allergic reactions in a few people.
Pineapple has ‘meat-tenderizing’ properties. And these are what cause the fruit to trigger allergic reactions . Mostly these reactions would resolve within a few hours by themselves. But if not, then a medical practitioner should be consulted immediately.
2 Bromelain Reactions
Bromelain is an enzyme found in the pineapple juice and stem. This enzyme has been found to cause reactions in our bodies when we consume pineapple.
Bromelain has the ability to increase the amount of certain antibiotics absorbed by the body. And when bromelain is consumed with blood-thinners, it can increase the risk of bleeding
3 Medication reactions
Pineapple might even interfere or interact with certain types of medications. This might lead to heightened side effects and other problems.
When a fresh pineapple is combined with certain antibiotics like amoxicillin and tetracycline, it might lead to an increase in the side effects caused by these antibiotics
4 Tooth Damage
Though pineapple is a healthy and delicious fruit, it can cause desensitization of teeth or tooth decay.
Fruits like pineapple which are highly acidic in nature initiate a chemical process in the mouth when consumed. This softens the enamel and leads to tooth decay .
