Despite its rough exterior, the pineapple is a symbol of welcome and hospitality. Pineapple is also quite hospitable to your immune system. In addition to large amounts of vitamin C and manganese, pineapples add to your daily value of vitamin B6, copper, thiamin, folate, potassium, magnesium, niacin, riboflavin, and iron. Pineapples are the only known food source of bromelain, a combination of enzymes that digest protein. That’s why pineapple works as a meat tenderizer. Bromelain, the digestive enzyme in pineapple, has anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. This helps when you have an infection, like sinusitis, or an injury, like a sprain or burn.
Banana are one of the most popular fruits worldwide. They contain essential nutrients that can have a protective impact on health. Eating bananas can help lower blood pressure and may reduce the risk of cancer. It is worth noting that while the nutrients in bananas can boost health and prevent diseases, eating bananas may not have the same impact on everyone. However, a diet that is rich in fresh fruits and vegetables will provide a range of essential nutrients that can help keep a person well.
