12 Amazing Things You Never Knew About Pineapples
4. Improves The Immune System
Packed with vitamin C, pineapples are terrific for supporting and strengthening the immune system. In turn, your immune system will protect you from viruses, which will naturally increase you resistance to the flu, colds, sinus infections, and more. So perhaps this fall you can skip the flu shot, and simply cut open a fresh pineapple instead!
5. Reduces Blood Clots
It’s the bromelain in pineapples that help our bodies stop the excessive coagulation of the blood. If you are a frequent flier, or if you have a family history of blood clots, you will want to eat more pineapple.
6. Supports Oral Health
Vitamin C helps prevent the formation of plaque on the teeth. Plaque leads to cavities and gum disease, so eating pineapple can help to reduce your risk of both of these problems. Research has shown that those who have lower levels of vitamin C in their blood have higher rates of periodontal (gum) disease. Bromelain will also remove stains from the teeth, so eating pineapple can keep those pearly whites bright and beautiful.
Keep in mind that pineapple is acidic, so it can soften tooth enamel. Never brush immediately after eating pineapple, but rinse your mouth with fresh water.
