Why is pineapple my best bro? When it comes to the Fruit family, my brother the pineapple gives me Bromelain to keep me strong and healthy. Bromelain is a combination of enzymes called proteolytic enzymes, that assist with the digestion of protein -- very helpful when it comes to reducing belly bloat and gas.
Some of the other health benefits of bromelain include reduction in inflammation after surgery and injury, lessening pain from osteoarthirtis, and as a complementary treatment for sinusitis by helping to reduce congestion and improve breathing.
Now for the kicker, bromelain in its natural form is only found in pineapples! You can buy dietary supplements that are derived from pineapple fruits, but eating a fresh juicy pineapple with its delicious blend of sweet and tart flavors, is something to be savored and enjoyed.
If you live in the US, we can ship fresh pineapples from Hawaii direct to your doorstep all year round! We offer fresh pineapple fruit with the crown attached in a 2 piece or 6 piece cushioned box, and exclusive pineapple gift baskets with added treats.
We cut and photographed the above pineapple boat the other week. (I couldn't wait till our photo shoot was over so we could eat it!) Find directions for how to cut your own pineapple boat here.
Now you know why pineapple is my best bro!
