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.
According to health experts “Pineapples contain a whole range of antioxidants and are also considered to be anti-cancer fruits. However, its use in women is indispensable. It contains substances that restore elasticity of skin fibers and thus rejuvenate it. This is especially visible on female breasts which lose their shape over the years. Drink enough fluids, discard the coffee and alcohol and eat pineapples daily. The results will be noticeable immediately.”
A single glass of unsweetened pineapple juice packs about 130 calories, 33mg calcium and 30mg magnesium. Plus, it has 25mg vitamin C, which is 30% of the daily recommended value for women (75 mg), and more than 25% for men (90mg). Pineapple juice also contains iron.
Due to everything pineapples have to offer, women are strongly advised to consume pineapples every day as these can help reduce their weight, burn cellulite, fight wrinkles and other visible signs of aging. But, the greatest benefit they provide for women is their effect on breast muscles. In fact, pineapple can significantly tighten sagging breasts and make them look perkier than before.
Pineapples are best consumed fresh, but you can also take them as juice, dried, canned, or as an addition to different recipes.
