Drinking pineapple water on an empty stomach everyday can be great for the following things:

Regular consumption of pineapple can help to treat mild forms of arthritis and sports injuries by reducing inflammation and pain.

Pineapples contain an enzyme bromelain, that is anti-parisitic. A couple sources state that a three day pineapple fast will kill tape worms.

Bromelain in pineapple helps the body digest proteins more efficiently.

Research found that the enzyme bromelain in pineapples acts as a natural stain remover, according to Dr. Frawley.  Bromelain also helps break up plaque effectively.

Data reported in a study published in the Archives of Ophthalmology indicates that eating 3 or more servings of pineapple per day may lower your risk of age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), the primary cause of vision loss in older adults.
