Maintaining Eye Health and 4 Other Benefits of Consuming Pineapple

INDOZONE.ID – Pineapple has a refreshing and sweet taste, this fruit contains lots of vitamin C. Vitamin C is a major water-soluble antioxidant that can fight cell damage, according to the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University quoted from Healthy Magazine.

Because of this content, here are the health benefits of pineapple:

1. Bone strength

Pineapple contains nearly 75 percent of the recommended daily mineral value of manganese, which is important in developing strong bones and connective tissue. One 1994 study suggested that manganese, along with other minerals, could help prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women.

2. Digestion

Pineapple contains dietary fiber which is important for keeping you healthy and especially maintaining intestinal health. But unlike many other fruits and vegetables, pineapple contains large amounts of bromelain, an enzyme that breaks down protein, possibly aiding digestion.

3. Anti-inflammatory

Due to the complex mixture of substances that can be extracted from the core of pineapple, known as bromelain, pineapples can help reduce severe inflammation and may reduce tumor growth.

4. Eye health

Pineapple can help reduce the risk of macular degeneration, a disease that affects the eyes as you age, partly due to the high amount of vitamin C and antioxidants they contain.

5. Reduce blood clots

Pineapple can help reduce excessive blood coagulation due to other levels of bromel. This makes pineapple a good snack for people who travel by plane frequently and others who are at risk of developing blood clots.
