Many people love pineapple. They say that a juicy, ripe pineapple can satisfy sweet cravings as effectively as a chocolate bar. The fruit also offers many health benefits.

Loaded With Vitamins and Minerals:
Pineapples are rich in vitamins and minerals including calcium, potassium, fiber and Vitamin C. The fruit is also low in fat and cholesterol.

You can enjoy the health benefits of pineapple by consuming the fresh fruit, or eating the canned or frozen versions. Pineapple juice is just as healthy.

Strengthens Bones:

Pineapple helps build healthy bones. This is because pineapples are rich in manganese, a trace mineral that is required to strengthen bones and connective tissues.

One cup of pineapple provides 73 percent of the daily recommended intake of manganese. Pineapple consumption can boost the growth and development of bones in young people and strengthen bones among the elderly.

Good for Colds and Coughs:
While many people take Vitamin C supplements or drink orange juice during a cold, few consider eating pineapple. The fruit provides the same benefits as orange juice in treating a cold or cough, but with an additional benefit. Bromelain, a substance found in pineapples, helps suppress coughs and loosen mucus
