I love fresh pineapple and not just in drinks like pina coladas! This tropical fruit has some serious health benefits. I just learned about a wonderful benefit of pineapple - it's slimming benefits!!!! I never would have thought a sweet delicious fruit like pineapple could smooth away cellulite.
A cup of pineapple has 75 calories, 0 grams of fat and 24 grams of vitamin C. It also has manganese, a mineral that stabilizes blood glucose levels to prevent the crashes that bring on cravings and cause excess belly fat.
It's the bromelain that makes pineapple the super fruit fat burning pick. Bromelian is an anti-inflammatory enzyme that smooths away cellulite when it dissolves the dimple-causing toxins under the skin that slows circulation of lymph fluid.
Bromelain can also improve the look of varicose veins by 67% in as little as 2 weeks says a German study.
Bromelain also helps digestion and relieves aches and pains.
For most health results eat fresh pineapple but is that isn't possible use canned but know that it has less of the enzymes but it does have the slimming vitamins and minerals.
Pineapple can be used in so many ways from mixing with yogurt for breakfast to grilling on skewers with shrimp. Have fun with it and reap the slimming and health benefits!
