What are the benefits of Pineapple?
Pineapple is an utterly delicious fruit, packed full of sweetness and oozing with goodness. Originating in South America, it was named ‘pineapple’ by European explorers after its resemblance to a pinecone.
Pineapples contain numerous nutrients, antioxidants and other compounds that have been linked to health benefits such as helping digestion, boosting immunity and fighting disease.
Why is Pineapple a superfood?
Perhaps one of the top pineapple benefits is that it contains a group of digestive enzymes known as bromelain, which are extremely helpful in maintaining a healthy body. Amongst other things, bromelain breaks down proteins which can help with digestion. It can also stimulate cell death in certain cancer cells and aid white blood cell function, which helps to reduce the risk of cancer.
Another pineapple health benefit is that the fruit is understood to help ease the symptoms of arthritis. Again, thanks to the magic group of enzymes known as Bromelain, pineapples may provide short-term pain relief for those with inflammatory arthritis through its anti-inflammatory properties. These properties may also help to reduce the time it takes to recover from surgery or exercise.
