Reasons to Start Eating Pineapple!

With its exciting health benefits it can help improve many people’s quality of life since this fruit delivers many healthy pluses to the average human body.

Pineapples remind us of the Hawaiian beach and the fun and dance that goes along with it. Available all the year round, pineapple is an inexpensive, nutritious fruit. Below are some reasons to stock up on pineapple and enjoy the juicy delicacies.

Loaded with Vitamin C: Did you know that one cup of pineapple chunks contains 131 percent of the daily value of Vitamin C, which helps protect the body against viruses and builds thereby building a strong skin defence mechanism against infection.

 

It helps you have strong bones: Single cup of approximately 165 grams of pineapple contains about 76 per cent of the recommended daily value of manganese which is essential for maintaining strong bones and healthy connective tissues.

It is a good digestive aid: To add to its benefit, pineapples also contain bromelain, an enzyme that aids indigestion, controls coughs, and loosens mucus. Bromelain is also very effective at reducing inflammation from infections and injuries thus it helps reduce swelling, bruising, healing time, and pain after physical injuries and surgery.

Idle for weight watchers: With its natural sweet and filling qualities, it is a good option for those looking for a sweet snack with the good taste coming in from the natural sugar it contains.

Improves your eye sight: Along with carrots that keep your eyes bright and healthy eating three or more servings of fruit a day too may lower risk of vision loss in older adults by as much as 36 per cent.
