Why pineapple should be your friend…

‘Cos it’s packed full of vitamins and minerals such as:

Potassium, Copper, Manganese, Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin C, Beta Carotene, Thiamin, B6, Folate, Bromelain; as well as Soluble and Insoluble Fibre.

A single serve of pineapple contains 130% of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin C, making it one of the richest sources of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C). Vitamin C is a fantastic antioxidant, a great immunity booster and helps to boost collagen production, making it supes for your skin! 🙂

Soluble and Insoluble Fibre are great for gut health. They bulk up stools (I don’t like this word so much) :-0 and stimulate the release of digesitive juices, helping to dissolve food and promote it’s passage through the bowel; making it good for conditions such as constipation, diarrhoea and even IBS.

Bromelain is a great anti-inflammatory and particularly good for inflammatory conditions of the nose and sinuses, or even to help reduce swelling after surgery or an injury apparently!

You get the picture, so go on, get tropical, as the Northern Hemisphere heads into what’s predicted to be a Baltic winter :-0 and, the Southern Hemisphere gets hot, hot, hot (well jel)!

Enjoy
