DID YOU KNOW ABOUT PINEAPPLES?
Did you know that pineapples are very healthy and can contribute to weight loss? Pineapples have medicinal value and can help with digestion. According to Healthline, “This popular fruit is packed with nutrients, antioxidants and other helpful compounds, such as enzymes that can fight inflammation and disease. Pineapple and its compounds have been linked to many health benefits, including aiding digestion, boosting immunity and speeding up recovery from surgery, among others.”
It has been said by many doctors that vitamin C can fight off many diseases. Pineapples are packed with vitamin C and many other great values. In the article I read from Healthline said, “Pineapples are packed with a variety of vitamins and minerals. They are especially rich in vitamin C and manganese.” Pineapples are a good source of antioxidants, which may lessen the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and some cancers. Many of the antioxidants in pineapple are bound, so they may have longer lasting effects. Pineapples are especially good for men because pineapples contain bromelain, a group of digestive enzymes that breaks down proteins. This can aid digestion, especially in those with pancreatic insufficiency. One of the helpful reasons I like pineapples is because pineapples have anti-inflammatory properties that may boost the immune system. Bromelain has many healthy factors in it. It can help stress, inflammation, swelling, bruising, and pain after strenuous exercise! It’s anti-inflammatory properties will keep you healthy and can help you lose weight.
Wouldn’t it be great to be able to eat more natural foods instead of taking so many pills? I have to admit that I take a lot of pills because of my condition! But I am ready to go all natural! I want my life back and want to be able to do more than be in a daze and sleep all the time. I am tired of being told that I have to choose how much medicine it will take to help my pain, not get rid of it, just help it and I will have to deal with whatever pain I have! I have found a book that I think you will enjoy reading! It has a lot of tips on eating more natural and what helps pain naturally! That’s what I am doing! My son once told me, “mom you are what you eat”, and that’s the truth!
Besides all of the nutritious values, pineapples are delicious! Some people like them on pizza or eating them plain. But did you know that some people eat them on hamburgers? Yes! I said hamburgers! They eat them with salads, ham, and yogurt! My favorite way to eat them is right out of the can! I also enjoy pineapples with orange juice! I’m hungry just thinking about it.
