3 Amazing Benefits of Pineapple for Cancer, Arthritis and More

Health Benefits of Pineapple:

1. Pineapple for Arthritis

This well-known tropical fruit contains immune-boosting vitamin C. Also, it provides a key enzyme known as bromelain, which is loaded with anti-inflammatory substances that can help in reducing joint swelling that is associated to rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

 

 

It is very easy to add pineapple into your diet. Try for 1 serving a day, cubed or sliced on cereal, or as a snack combined with plain yogurt. Choose fresh pineapple or fresh pineapple juice whenever possible.
This is because the processing of canned pineapple destroys some of its health-boosting enzyme.
