Pineapple Fruit: Say Good Bye to Indigestion

Pineapple Fruit: Say Good Bye to Indigestion

The Pineapple fruit helps you digest that juicy, yummy steak that you had for dinner. 

So, say good bye to indigestion.

Here's why - Pineapple contains an enzyme that breaks down proteins. 

I love to eat pineapples.

My wife does, too.

And we prefer the queen. The queen is a pineapple variety that is kind of small but very delicious.

As a matter of fact, my hometown, Ormoc City, is quite known for its queen pineapples.

Health Benefits of the Pineapple Fruit

  • It is an excellent source of vitamin c, which is an antioxidant
  • It contains bromelain, which is a proteolytic enzyme. It helps break down proteins.
  • It is a rich source of both soluble and insoluble fiber. This tanslates into having a good bowel movement. One whole pineapple fruit provides you with around 13 grams of dietary fiber.
  • Eaten regularly, it helps fight against arthritis and also helps prevent indigestion
  • It also helps prevent worm infestation
  • It contains vitamin A, which helps you maintain good vision and healthy mucus membranes
  • It is rich in B - complex vitamins
  • It contains minerals such as, copper, manganese and potassium
  • It helps reduce intestinal inflammation

One significant benefit we get from eating this fruit regularly is improved digestion.

I usually buy this high fiber fruit during weekends. My wife and I do our marketing either on a Saturday or on a Sunday.

We make it a habit to walk over to our favorite fruit stand as a last stop before we head for home.

The stall owner is an old friend of mine.

He gives us a discount especially when we include fresh bananas, mangoes and watermelon along with the pineapples.

Aside from this, I also buy pineapple vinegar from him at a discounted price.

You see, pineapple enzymes are so powerful at breaking down proteins, that they are commonly used as meat tenderizers.

The pineapple is best eaten fresh.

I suggest you eat it before a heavy meal. However, there are plenty of ways that you can enjoy this high fiber fruit.

You can either have it as a pineapple smoothie or you can make a thirst-quenching juice out of it.

Pineapple juice is a good choice if you include it in your juice fast. It helps your glandular systems maintain their healthy condition.

And there you have it, make it a habit to eat fruits regularly. Choose the fresh ones as much as possible.

As for me, I prefer the small queen pineapple fruit from Ormoc.
