INTRODUCTION

Hello guys, welcome to mehtajifitness. In this article, we will discuss the top health benefits of eating pineapple. So, without wasting any time lets get started.

The pineapple is one of my favorite fruits, and not just because of its tangy, sweet taste. I find the pineapple to be one of the most gorgeous, exotic fruits to look at, with its vibrant yellow and green hues. It is such an attractive addition to a bowl of mixed tropical fruit on our kitchen counters. But it’s not only a looker, but it also has very impressive nutritional credentials to boot!

100 grams of fresh pineapple has only 50 calories, is fat-free, has a milligram of sodium, and 1.4g of dietary fiber. A 100g of pineapple also contributes 79 percent of your vitamin C intake for the day. Other notable vitamins and minerals include potassium, vitamin B6 and thiamin.

And now we will discuss some top health benefits of pineapple which are stated below:

What are the health benefits of pineapple?

1. They are great for gut health. Pineapple can help reduce bloat as well as prevent other tummy troubles. Pineapple is unique in that it is our only source of dietary bromelain, which is a digestive enzyme that helps break down protein foods. Pineapple also contains fiber, which helps in the digestion very well.

2. They’re hydrating. Another reason why pineapples are such an amazing fruit to snack on during the summer is that they have a high water content; between 85 and 89 percent of pineapple is water. You already know how important it is to stay hydrated so, this is one food that can really help. (Along with your regular water drinking habits, of course!)

3. They could help you fall asleep. Pineapples contain 20 milligrams of magnesium per cup of sliced chunks (about 6 percent of your recommended daily intake), which benefits the body in a myriad of ways. Magnesium helps regulate blood pressure, nerve and muscle function, and it transports potassium in the body. One very good reason to have pineapple is that it has magnesium content that could be helpful to you for better sleep.

4. They contain potassium. Another important nutrient pineapples contain is potassium (180 milligrams per cup, about 7 percent of what you should be getting in a day.) Eating high-potassium foods can help lower blood pressure. It’s also an important electrolyte that assists with muscle and kidney function.

5. They’re good for your immune system. Because of pineapple’s high vitamin C content i.e.,79 milligrams per cup of chunks, which hits your recommended daily allowance in one serving, it’s here to keep annoying summer sickness from getting in the way of your fun. One study found that kids who ate pineapple regularly got sick less than kids who didn’t.
