HEALTH BENEFITS PINEAPPLE
With its spiky, dusty green leaves and cross-hatched, golden orange skin, the pineapple definitely is a very distinctive looking fruit. Available year-round in local markets, pineapples have a vibrant tropical flavor that balances the tastes of sweet and tart. Pineapples are also loaded with a wide range of health benefits, and here are just a few:
1. Prevents Free Radical Damage:
A rich source of antioxidants, pineapples fight against free radicals in the body, preventing cell damage. These antioxidants help protect you from diseases like atherosclerosis, heart diseases, arthritis, various cancers etc.
2. Thwarts Off Cold:
Pineapples are abundant in vitamin C and bromelain, which fight against microbial infections. Eating pineapples with prescribed medicines can help cure cold and cough effectively.
3. Strong Bones:
The rich amount of manganese present in pineapples helps strengthen bones and connective tissues. A cup of pineapple juice gives you roughly 73% of the required manganese for a day.
