Why you should eat more pineapple
The pineapple is a herbaceous fruit plant of the bromeliad family.
With 20 milligrams per 100 grams, it provides quite a bit of vitamin C. The positive effect on the immune system and the iron absorption from food should only be briefly mentioned here. Pineapple also contains a lot of manganese, which together with vitamin C is responsible for collagen formation in the skin. Manganese is a trace element.
Pineapple contains plenty of bromelain, an enzyme with some very good properties, for which there are tons of health claims, related to the immune system, good blood circulation, digestive support and even fighting related to edema.
The pineapple provides valuable beta-carotene, which is processed by the body into vitamin A.
Pineapple in Ayurveda
Sour fruits such as berries, pineapple or citrus fruits are refreshing, but they are also acidic. They strengthen Agni, increase Pitta and regulate Vata dosha. Are you prone to Pitta disorders? Then stay away from sour fruits.
Ayurvedic no-go: eat sour fruit with fermented milk products (yoghurt, quark or cheese). This would clog the srotas and strain the skin's metabolism.
