Pineapples, a sweet idea

For a long time, health conscious and dieters shied away from pineapples because of their sugar content. However, pineapples are not only delicious tropical fruits with a unique taste but have been celebrated for centuries for their miraculous health benefits.

Pineapples are a storehouse of several health benefits due to their nutrients.
They contain bromelain, an anti-inflammatory enzyme, protein, carbohydrates, soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. All these benefits don’t stop there as they also contain vitamin A, vitamin C, beta-carotene, thiamin, vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), vitamin B6, and folate. Minerals like potassium, copper, manganese, calcium, sodium, and magnesium are also found in pineapples.

Could it get any better? Yes it can! These tropical fruits are also low in calories and play a major part in weight loss diets.

Pineapples super powers will:

Boost immunity
Improve bone health

Finally, next time you are looking for a pre/post-workout snack go for it! Pineapples have just the right amount of simple sugars to top off glycogen stores, ensuring you have good energy going. Their high water content (about 86%) will also help keep you hydrated whilst their anti-inflammatory benefits will prevent muscle damage.
