Health Benefits about Dried Pineapple:
-Dried pineapple is jam-packed with a protective enzyme called bromelain. This enzyme fights inflammation that affects the tissues and organs of the body. Some research suggests that bromelain may be as effective in reducing swelling as anti-inflammatory medications. It can aid with recovery from sports injuries and after surgery.
-Pineapple slices are also used as a remedy for indigestion. They relieve stomach aches and support digestive health by breaking down proteins. The bromelain in dried pineapple also acts as an immunity-booster so make sure you eat enough pineapple around cold and flu season.
-Pineapple fruit is also naturally packed with antioxidants that neutralize harmful free radicals. Free radicals are associated with age-related degeneration and disease, but antioxidants help to protect against their damaging effects.
-Dried pineapple is very rich in dietary fiber in the form of insoluble fibre. This type of fiber supports the digestive tract, making sure things run at optimum efficiency. Insoluble fiber also provides a sense of fullness, therefore dried pineapples are a satisfactory option to satisfy rumbling bellies between meals.
