The TikTok world is ablaze once again, and this is one hack I can get behind!
We get all our best tips and tricks from TikTok, don’t we? I get SO many new food tips and tricks, and I just love it!
Of course, there’s also SO much on TikTok that we should just let fade into history, like the “Frozen Corn Syrup” trend. It’s just dangerous.
But, this new Pineapple Juice Hack is a hella useful tip for anyone who has to have oral surgery — namely getting those pesky wisdom teeth out.
TikTok users are saying that if you drink 64 ounces of pineapple juice the DAY BEFORE you have wisdom teeth surgery, you won’t have those chipmunk cheeks (swelling) the next day.
So many people have tried it, and they are all saying the same thing — It Works!!
They are having virtually NO swelling the day after they get their wisdom teeth out.
Even a doctor has chimed in on the action!
@Tonyyounmd has gone on the TikTok record saying that pineapple contains an enzyme called Bromelain. It is this enzyme that is the magic ingredient that reduces facial swelling.
According to Mount Sinai, “bromelain may reduce swelling, bruising, healing time, and pain after surgery and physical injuries.”
Now, there have been conflicting results when bromelain has been studied in the lab to reduce swelling.
But really, most all TikTok users say it works. That’s all the results I need!!
There are only a few things you really need to be careful about with drinking pineapple juice. 1) Don’t drink AFTER the time the doctor tells you to stop eating and drinking. 2) Too much pineapple juice can give you “stomach upset and diarrhea.” 3) Avoid pineapple juice with alcohol in it! 4) You will obviously have to get up like 5 times during the night to pee. *Smile Emoji*

So, what do you think? Have you tried this trick? Will you use it when you have to have your wisdom teeth out?
