You Need More Pineapple in Your Life

By Sara Butler

Pineapple is a bit of a strange looking fruit but it sure is delicious! It’s delicious and refreshing and also packs a pretty powerful dose of healthy vitamins and minerals your body needs to stay healthy. If you were looking for more excuses to work more pineapple into your day, look no further! Here are some great ways you can enjoy more pineapple, every day – and why you should want to!

You Need Your Vitamin C

Just one cup of pineapple has all of the recommended daily allowances of Vitamin C. That’s right – one and done! So why is Vitamin C so important? Well, you probably know it can help to support a healthy immune system but did you also know that it helps your body repair itself? Yes! Vitamin C supports the repair and growth of tissues in your body. Its antioxidant qualities also help to protect the cells in the body from illnesses such as heart disease and cancer.

It Helps Keep Your Skin Healthy

Most people don’t really think about the health of their skin but they should. The skin is the largest organ of the body and it works hard to protect you so that your body can function at its best. Pineapple happens to be rich in manganese, providing about 75 percent of your daily needs in just one cup. Manganese helps to build collagen, a component of healthy skin that helps to keep it strong and flexible. It also helps to prevent wrinkles and sagging!

Manganese also helps to protect the skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun. That makes pineapple even more important in the summertime!

Promoting Healthy Digestion

Pineapple contains something called bromelain, an enzyme that helps your digestive system to break down food. This makes sense considering pineapple juice is added to marinades in order to tenderize meat – it’s the same principle. If you include pineapple with your meals, then the bromelain may help to keep your regular and reduce indigestion, bloat, and sluggishness.

Eat More Pineapple

You can easily work more pineapple into your diet. Add it to your smoothies, add chunks to some coleslaw at your next summer cookout, grill slices of fresh pineapple, or whip it up with some coconut milk and frozen banana for a cool treat.

Pineapple is really good for you, so try getting more of it starting today!
