Pineapple is seriously delicious, but did you know that it is also full of amazing properties? This juicy tropical fruit is not only packed with nutrients and antioxidants but it is gifted with some incredible enzymes which help avoid and reduce inflammation. These enzymes, known as bromelain, are really great at helping your digestive system break down proteins.
Fun fact: this delicious fruit is originated from South America and received the name, pineapple because the first explorers thought they looked like pine cones. Interesting, right?
