Here is some information about the vitamineral benefits found in pineapples!
Pineapple is a sweet, tropical fruit that can be found in most grocery stores year round, though the main growing season in March through June. The fruit gets its name from the Spanish word "pina" and the English word "apple," reflecting the fruit's resemblance to a pinecone, according to World's Healthiest Food's. The fruit can be eaten raw, juiced or used in a variety of cooking dishes. A typical serving of raw pineapple is 1 cup of chopped fruit. The fruit's nutritional benefits include high doses of vitamins C and other B complex vitamins.
Vitamin C is dominates the vitamin category; 131 percent of the recommended daily value can be found in one serving of raw pineapple. The daily value is based on the recommended dietary allowance. Vitamin C has a variety of health benefits including boosting the immune system and aiding in the absorption of iron. The body also requires vitamin C for proper and healthy formation of collage, muscles, bone and blood vessels.
Thiamin, also categorized as vitamin B1 or aneurine, is also found in pineapples---9 percent of the daily value. It was one of the first compounds to be discovered in the body and categorized as a vitamin. Thiamine is important for nervous system and muscle functioning. Thiamine also helps produce hydrochloric acid---essential for the body to digest food. Vitamin B6 is also present in pineapple and contains 9 percent of the daily value. Protein and red blood cell metabolism both require vitamin B6. A deficiency of the vitamin is rare, but can result in anemia.
