Jakarta, Jurnas.com – In addition to its refreshing and sweet taste, pineapple also contains a lot of vitamin C which is very beneficial for the body.

Here are six other benefits of pineapple, as reported by Jktinfo, Friday (01/01/2021):

Bone Strength

Pineapple can help you to stay upright and strong. This fruit contains nearly 75 percent of the recommended daily mineral value of manganese, which is important in developing strong bones and connective tissue according to the Linus Pauling Institute.

Reducing Pineapple clots 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.


Like many other fruits and vegetables, pineapple contains important dietary fiber and also contains significant amounts of bromelain, an enzyme that breaks down protein, possibly aiding digestion, according to the American Cancer Society.

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. Various studies have shown that bromelain may be helpful in treating osteoarthritis, although more research is needed.

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.

Inflammation of colds and sinuses

As well as having plenty of vitamin C, pineapple’s bromelain can help reduce mucus in the throat and nose, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center.
