Pineapples have a list of incredible health benefits, including everything from reducing bloating, strengthening bones, fighting off the flu, getting gorgeous glowing skin and even assisting in preventing gum disease.

While some curry recipes leave you feeling bloated, this one comes with the best digestive enzymes (bromelain, the enzyme found in pineapples) and help reduce swelling and inflammation. “Bromelain is thought to assist in digestion by breaking down proteins in the stomach,” according to the American Cancer Society.

Bloating is commonly associated with indigestion, however, when this symptom is accompanied by others, it could indicate something much more severe. Some other possible causes of bloating are:

  • Liver disease (bloating + jaundice)

  • Colon cancer (bloating + bleeding +constipation)

  • Uterine cancer (bloating +  abnormal vaginal bleeding + a watery or blood-tinged vaginal discharge)

  • Pancreatic cancer (bloating + jaundice + weight loss + poor appetite)

  • Crohn’s disease (bloating + weight loss + vomiting after meals + nausea)

This sweet, yellow fruit has a long history of promoting digestive health, even being said to relieve constipation and treat other digestive disorders.

Moreover, pineapples are a rich source of vitamin C, which plays a vital role in multiple areas of the body. Some of the ways in which this essential nutrient enhances our health include:

  • Strengthens the immune system and fights free radicals.

  • Contributes to eye health and reduces the risk of macular degeneration.

  • Reduces the look of aging by playing an active role in collagen synthesis. Collagen helps keep our skin smooth and supple, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

  • Reduces inflammation.

  • Lowers the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease.

There are many ways to enjoy the health benefits of pineapples, including savory ways! Have dinner on the table in no time with this delicious, fragrant pineapple curry!
