Eating fruits and vegetables of all types has long been associated with a reduced risk of many lifestyle-related health conditions.
Many studies have suggested that increasing consumption of plant foods like pineapples decreases the risk of obesity, overall mortality, diabetes, and heart disease.
It also promotes a healthy complexion and hair, increased energy, and an overall lower weight.
The following are possible benefits of eating pineapple.
Age-related macular degeneration
In one prospective study from 2004, people who ate 3 or more servings per day of all fruits demonstrated a decreased risk and slowed progression of age-related macular degeneration.
The risks of developing asthma are lower in people who consume a high amount of certain nutrients.
One of these nutrients is beta-carotene. It is found in orange, yellow and dark green plant foods, such as pineapple, mangoes, papaya, apricots, broccoli, cantaloupe, pumpkin, and carrots.
Some smaller studies have suggested bromelain can also contribute to reducing asthma symptoms.
