Besides tasting great in fruity cocktails, fresh pineapple offers many health benefits. Here are a few reasons why you should eat them:

– Pineapples are packed with vitamin C which helps fight against heart disease and joint pain.

– They contain fiber which helps aid digestion.

– Pineapples contain bromelain, an enzyme that breaks down protein & also helps reduce mucus if you have a cold or allergies.

– They reduce severe inflammation.

– Manganese found in pineapples helps strengthen bones & connective tissues.

– They contain an abundance of antioxidants which help fight free radicals, and ultimately prevent many types of cancer.

– Pineapple juice relieves nausea & morning sickness.

– Fresh pineapple juice applied to the face gives for skin a collagen boost & helps you look younger (just avoid the eye area).

– The vitamin C found in pineapples helps prevent hair loss.

Next time you walk past the fruit section I suggest you grab one of these magical fruits.
