Pineapple

Pineapple is delicious, versatile, and loaded with nutrients and antioxidants.

Pinapple (Ananas comosus) is an incredibly delicious, healthy tropical fruit. It’s packed with nutrients, antioxidants, and other helpful compounds, such as enzymes that can protect against inflammation and disease. Originating in South America, it was named by early European colonizers for its resemblance to a pine cone. Pineapple and its compounds are linked to several health benefits, including improvements in digestion, immunity, and recovery from surgery. Their impressive health benefits include improved digestion, a lower risk of cancer, and osteoarthritis relief.

Pineapple is widely considered safe, though a small percentage of people may have an allergy to it. People who have diabetes or take blood thinners should be mindful of portion sizes when eating pineapple.
