Vitamin C is incredibly important to ensure the proper functioning of the immune system, which protects against pesky coughs and colds, so don't deprive yourself!
 


2. Aids digestion

As it contains dietary fiber, pineapple, like other fruit, is absolutely essential if you suffer from problems with your digestive system.

Pineapple also helps to break down protein which other fruits don't!
 


3. Bone health

Considering the health of our bones becomes more and more necessary as we get older.

Pineapple is chock-full of manganese - an element which is connected to the prevention and relief of osteoporosis.
 


4. Aids weight loss

As pineapples are low in fat, but sweet to taste it makes them the perfect snack for anyone on a diet!

Rich in both fibre and water, pineapple fills you up and stops you reaching for that chocolate.
 


5. Calms complexion issues

If you suffer from skin problems, then why not include a glass of pineapple juice with your breakfast?

Full of vitamin A, which reduces inflammation and acts as an anti-fungal and anti-bacterial agent, this is the perfect fruit to keep you looking your best!
