Benefits of  Eating Pineapples

Pneapple is a member of the bromeliad family. It is extremely rare that bromeliads                                                        produce edible fruit. The pineapple is the only available edible bromeliad today.

It is a multiple fruit. One pineapple is actually made up of dozens of individual floweret's that
grow together to form the entire fruit.

Each scale on a pineapple is evidence of a separate flower.

Pineapples stop ripening the minute they are picked. No special way of  storing them

will help ripen them further. Colour is relatively unimportant in  determining ripeness.

Choose your pineapple by smell. If it smells fresh, tropical and sweet, it will be a good fruit.

The more scales on the pineapple, the sweeter and  juicier the taste. After you cut off the top,

you can plant it. It should grow much like a sweet potato  will.

This delicious fruit is not only sweet and tropical; it also offers many benefits to our                                                        health.

Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme, is the key to pineapple's value. Proteolytic means "breaks down protein", 
which is why pineapple is known to be a digestive aid.

It helps the body digest proteins more efficiently.

Bromelain is also considered an effectiveanti-inflammatory. Regular ingestion of at least one half cup of fresh             pineapple daily is purported to relieve  painful joints common to osteoarthritis. 

It produces mild  pain relief. In Germany ,bromelain is approved as a post-injury medication because it is thought
to reduce inflammation and swelling.

It is commonly used in Europe as a post-operative measure to cut mucous after certain and throat                             operations.

Those individuals who  eat fresh  pineapple daily report fewer sinus problems related to allergies.

In and of itself, pineapple has a very low risk for allergies.

Pineapple is also known to discourage blood clot development. This makes it a valuable dietary addition for                frequent fliers and others who may be at risk for blood clots.
