We frequently forget about the amazing health benefits this tropical fruit provides.
Apart from its wonderful taste, pineapples offer a wide range of nutrients, such as vitamin C, manganese, copper and folate. Moreover, this delicious tropical fruit is also the only source of the plant compound bromelain.
Bromelain is extremely health beneficial in terms of improving immune function, providing cancer prevention, promoting wound healing and better digestive health.
Scientists believe that this compound can break down blood proteins, thus reducing painful inflammations in the body. Bromelain can also protect your joints from the adverse effects of free radicals.
