Reasons why you should eat pineapple more often!

Pineapple is available all year round, yet it’s often eaten in the summer. And there’s also this whole debacle about whether or not it belongs on a pizza. Anyway, these are the health benefits!

  1. Immune system

Pineapple contains a lot of vitamin C and this vitamin ensures a stronger immune system. In addition, vitamin C is needed for the growth and repair of healthy tissue. It doesn’t stop here. Vitamin C also ensures that your immune system can fight free radicals and reduce inflammation.

2. Digestion

A lesser-known fact is that pineapple contains bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme with many beneficial properties. This enzyme is often prescribed in people recovering from surgery or sports injury. Bromelain also aids in digestion and helps support the stomach and intestines in their function.

3. Iron absorption and heart health

Sufficient vitamin C is required for iron absorption. Iron is again needed for the production of hemoglobin. This is the protein in your blood that carries oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body. In addition, pineapple contains a lot of potassium, which is important for normal blood pressure. Potassium can also ensure that no narrowing of the blood vessels occurs.

4. Chronic diseases

Pineapple contains many antioxidants that counteract oxidative stress. Long-term oxidative stress can cause chronic diseases such as heart disease. The antioxidants in pineapple neutralise the free radicals, which eventually cause oxidative stress.
