Pineapple is glorified for its power to reduce muscle and joint inflammation including arthritis. Millions of people suffer from arthritis, but the pineapple consumption will ease the symptoms. Also, the pineapple contains a proteolytic enzyme, bromelain which breaks down complex proteins thus providing anti-inflammatory properties.
A portion of pineapple contains 130% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C which makes it the most delicious source of ascorbic acid. Vitamin C is well known for its health benefits. It is a cure for many diseases, boosts the activity of white blood cells which increases the immunity, it is great body cleanser and reduces the effects of harmful free radicals.
The free radicals are a byproduct of cellular metabolism which can be very harmful to the vital systems of the body. They are accountable for the transformation of the healthy cells into cancerous. The high levels of vitamin C found in the pineapple prevent such effects.
Tissue and cellular health
Vitamin C is crucial for the collagen production which is an essential protein base of blood vessels, skin, organs and bones. The vitamin C levels of the pineapple boost the wound healing and fight against many skin diseases.
Pineapples are rich in vitamin C but also in many different antioxidants such as beta-carotene, vitamin A, bromelain and large amounts of manganese which is a crucial factor of superoxide dismutase (very powerful in the fight against free radicals). Pineapple prevents the oral, throat and breast cancer.
Pineapples contain soluble and insoluble fiber. This means that regular consumption of pineapples will protect you from many health problems such as diarrhea, constipation, bowel discomfort, atherosclerosis, blood clotting and hypertension.
Fibers ease the food passage through the digestive tract and also boost the release of gastric and digestive juices that help in food desolvation. Furthermore, fibers help in treating bowel discomfort or diarrhea. Also, they remove the bad cholesterol from the vessels which is vital for the cardiovascular health.
A Cough and Cold
Vitamin C improves the immunity and the bromelain reduces phlegm and mucus in the respiratory tract which can be caused by an infection.
Pineapples are not rich in calcium but they contain manganese which is a trace mineral crucial for the bone health. They are manganese’s richest source and one portion of pineapple contains 70% of the recommended daily intake of magnesium.
As said above, antioxidants found in the pineapple prevent oral cancer. Also, they are great helpers in protecting teeth and strengthening the gums because of the astringent properties. Astringents prevent the hair and tooth loss and also strengthen up the tissues which help in muscle weakness and loose skin.
Pineapples are great for eye health. The beta carotene contained in the pineapple makes it great in preventing the macular regeneration which usually happens to the elderly people.
Pineapples are rich in potassium which is very important mineral for the body. The potassium reduces the blood vessel tension and stimulates the blood circulation. When the vessels are relaxed the blood pressure is low and the blood flow is not constrained which prevents the clotting. Also, it reduces the buildup of the plaque in the vessels which prevents stroke, heart attack, and atherosclerosis.
Pineapples are abundant in copper wich is another mineral that is crucial for a number of enzymatic processes such as the creation of red blood cells.
The high level of red blood cells boosts the oxygen supply to vital organs and allows their good function. Moreover, this enhances the cognitive abilities and maintains natural pathways which stop some neural disorders such as dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Despite the great health benefits of the pineapple, you should be aware of some things. Bromelain is also known to tenderize meat. This means it boosts the dissolving of tough food. But, if you over consume pineapple, your lips, gums, and tongue may become over sensitive. Overeating foods that contain bromelain may cause diarrhea, nausea, headache, and vomiting.
Moreover, women should be very careful during pregnancy because bromelain also stimulates the menstrual cycle. In extreme cases, bromelain can cause miscarriage.
