(NaturalNews) Pineapple is a tasty fruit, typically enjoyed during the summertime and for its sweet, tropical flavor. However, the goodness of pineapple extends well beyond its taste, as it offers several health benefits worth exploring.

The fact that it's listed on the World's Healthiest Foods website says a great deal, and there, it's noted as a way to improve overall health ranging from improving digestion to boosting the immune system. (1) At the center of its ability to bolster health is an enzyme called bromelain, which is responsible for reducing inflammation just as effectively as prescribed or over-the-counter drugs, minus the possible negative health consequences. (2)

From reducing swelling gums to helping improve arthritis pain, bromelain works to ensure that such painful conditions are kept at bay. (2)

The many health benefits of pineapple

Additionally, inflammation manifests in ways that aren't necessarily visible or painful, and bromelain's anti-inflammatory abilities work to ensure a healthy-functioning system that fights the free radicals that often set in during inflammation. Research has linked bromelain to reduction in the number of cancer tumors, noting it as an important protective substance that helps signal the death of cancerous cells. (3)

It's important to not throw the core of the pineapple out, since the majority of bromelain is found there. (3) Consider eating the core to enjoy the utmost benefits of the fruit while also reducing food waste.

Bromelain is also a great way to treat post-operative swelling, obtain relief from sinusitis and even help with digestive problems. (2) When it comes to digestive issues, the enzyme helps break down proteins, which is especially beneficial for those with conditions that make them not able to do so efficiently. (2)

The enzyme has also been effective in reducing phlegm and mucus, making it a go-to choice when fighting off a cold or infection. (4)

Furthermore, pineapple has been associated with having properties that improve oral health by strengthening gums and helping preserve teeth, as well as reducing blood pressure and improving eye health. (4)
