Pine Crush – a Natural Digestion Aid
The Queensland Sunshine Coast produces a
variety of pineapple that is rich in an enzyme that is capable of
digesting polysaccharide molecules, as well as the usual bromelain
protease. Biohawk has developed Pine Crush with a high concentration of
active enzymes to aid in the digestion of both polysaccharides and
proteins made from the whole pineapple (skin removed). Currently it is
only available in a form that has to be kept cold in a refrigerator
during use and stored frozen. Biohawk plans to produce it as a dry
powder in the not too distant future.
Pine Crush has been shown to digest phlegm in
the throat and lungs. It was developed to remove the carbohydrate
coating on Gram-negative bacteria that binds to membrane proteins
preventing the ginger digesting these proteins. Some viruses also have a carbohydrate coating covering their membrane proteins.
