THE MIGHTY PINEAPPLE

PINEAPPLE IS BETTER FOR YOU THAN YOU REALIZE

Pineapple is loaded with essential vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants, and other helpful compounds. It also has anti-inflammatory and immune-supporting properties. That’s because the fruit, juice, peel and stem contain bromelain, a type of enzyme.

Among its multiple uses, bromelain’s therapeutic benefits include:

Boosts the immune system

May Improve Eye Health

Helps Fight Sinus Infections

Can Help With Weight Loss

Helps Muscle Recovery after Exercise

May Help Heal Skin

Can Fight Asthma and Allergies

Can Reduce Joint Pain and Arthritis Symptoms

Helps With Digestive Disorders

Helps Protect the Heart

Goodness! Based on what I’ve been reading, we should be drinking a glass of pineapple juice with our breakfast in the morning instead of orange juice.

Pineapple is widely considered safe, though a small percentage of people may have an allergy to it or to bromelain. People who have diabetes or who take blood thinners should be mindful of portion sizes when eating pineapple. Another thing to be aware of is that the bromelain in pineapple may increase the absorption of certain antibiotics.

Behold, the mighty pineapple!
