Pineapples are a delicious fruit that have long been used for healing purposes. The flesh of a pineapple has been shown to aid in digestion and help reduce the risk of blood clots. Pineapple is also a great source of vitamin C and ferulic acid which helps prevent cancer. Did you know that the bromelain in pineapple can act as a meat tenderizer? Add some the next time you marinate a steak! Yummy.
