4 Delicious benefits of eating pineapple

Pineapple is the favorite fruit of many and even though it tastes delicious a lot of people decided to quit eating it, since pineapples were eating them back – being eaten is not something a lot of people enjoy.

People started to realize pineapple is eating them right back because of a very popular post that circulated around the internet that talked about an enzyme found in pineapples called bromelain. Bromelain breaks down proteins and digests them, but this isn’t everything that it does. There are a lot of advantages associated with eating fresh pineapple, let’s look at them:

1 – Bromelain plays an anti-aging role

As it turns out, Bromelain is a natural anticoagulant and even though it breaks down proteins and digests them, it does the same thing to blood-clotting protein fibrin. This means it can improve the immune system, and help people suffering from a wide variety of problems.

The help it adds to the immune system means that our skin can stay healthier for a larger amount of time, and UV rays and other things are going to have a harder time aging us.

2 – It strengthens your bones

Pineapple is rich in manganese, which helps protect your bones and connective tissues. One could argue this is part of the anti-aging role, but let’s separate it. Pineapple is so rich in manganese that one simple cup of pineapple juice could give you over 70% of the amount you need per day.

3 – Helps prevent cancer

This is a big one. Pineapple has a lot of vitamin C in it and this means that it can help fight the formation of free radicals, which are a very well-known cause of cancer.

We usually associate vitamin C with oranges, but roughly 100g of pineapple have almost 80% of the amount of vitamin C we need to consume on a daily basis.

4 – It’s great for diets

Pineapples don’t have a lot of calories but have a high nutritional value, this means they are an excellent piece of fruit to include in your diet, as it won’t add a lot to your daily calorie intake, but it will add a lot to your daily vitamin consumption.

As a matter of fact, the same 100g of Pineapple that give you almost 80% of your daily dose of vitamin C have only 50 calories. Let’s do the math: if 100g have 50 calories, this means that 1g has half a calorie in it!

Now that you know about these 4 delicious benefits of eating pineapples, go to the local food market and get some, you won’t regret it!
