7 REASONS WE LOVE EATING PINEAPPLE By Harper Nutrition

PINEAPPLE - 7 REASONS WHY WE LOVE EATING IT AND WHY YOU SHOULD TOO!

1) NUTRIENT-DENSE POWERHOUSES
Pineapples are loaded with a variety of essential vitamins and minerals - especially vitamin C and manganese

2) GOOD SOURCE OF DISEASE-FIGHTING ANTIOXIDANTS
The antioxidants in pineapples may help reduce the risk of chronic diseases (diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers). The antioxidants in pineapple may have longer lasting effects because many of them are bound

3) ITS ENZYMES CAN EASE DIGESTION
Pineapples contain a group of digestive enzymes, called bromelain, that breaks down proteins - which in turn helps with digestion

4) MAY HELP REDUCE THE RISK OF CANCER
Oxidative stress and inflammation are reduced by compounds found in pineapple - great news as both are linked to cancer. Bromelain (the same enzyme we just mentioned) may aid in white blood cell function and may stimulate cell death in certain cancer cells

5) MAY BOOST IMMUNITY AND SUPPRESS INFLAMMATION
Pineapples have anti-inflammatory properties that may boost the immune system

6) MAY EASE SYMPTOMS OF ARTHITIS
Short-term relief of arthritis symptoms may be provided by the anti-inflammatory properties of pineapple

7) MAY SPEED RECOVERY AFTER STRENUOUS EXERCISE
Again, thanks to the amazing enzyme bromelain (found in pineapples), tissue inflammation resulting from strenuous exercise is reduced, helping with a better recovery post workout!
