Why pineapples are good for us!
Pineapple is valuable for easing indigestion,
arthritis or sinusitis.
Pineapple is high in manganese, a mineral that
is critical to the development of strong bones
and connective tissue.
Pineapple contains Bromelain, a proteolytic
enzyme, which is a digestive aid. It helps the
body digest proteins more efficiently.
The juice has an anthelmintic effect; it helps get
rid of intestinal worms.
Regular ingestion of at least one-half cup of
fresh pineapple daily is purported to relieve the
painful joints common to osteoarthritis.
It has the ability to reduce mucous in the throat.
If you have a cold with a productive cough, add
pineapple to your diet.
Pineapple is also known to discourage blood
clot development. This makes it a valuable
dietary addition for frequent fliers and others
who may be at risk for blood clots.
It’s also good for a healthier mouth. The fresh
juice discourages plaque growth.
