Pineapple (Ananas comosus) is an incredibly delicious, healthy tropical fruit. It’s packed with nutrients, antioxidants, and other helpful compounds, such as enzymes that can protect against inflammation and disease. It’s commonly eaten baked, grilled, or freshly cut.
Originating in South America, it was named by early European colonizers for its resemblance to a pine cone.
Pineapple and its compounds are linked to several health benefits, including improvements in digestion, immunity, and recovery from surgery.
