Pineapple for Faster Healing

Pineapple is a wonderfully sweet addition to any meal, but did you know that it’s rich in an enzyme called Bromelain, which is famous for it’s digestive and anti-inflammatory properties? It’s most commonly used in sports medicine, where it aids against swelling in inflamed joints, pain in sore muscles, as well as the promotion of healing in the body. Pineapples are also high in vitamin C, which is great for the body’s fight against free radicals and aids in the building of a proper immune system. [1]

Buy some pineapple at the store and savor the sweetness of this tropical fruit as well as the healing properties it will give your body.
