Health Benefits of Dry Pineapple when training
Dried pineapple is chock-full of a protective enzyme called bromelain. This enzyme fights inflammation that affects the tissues and organs of the body. Some research suggests that bromelain may be as effective in reducing swelling as anti-inflammatory medications. Bromelain can aid recovery from sports injuries and after surgery. Enzyme-rich dried pineapple slices are also used as a remedy for indigestion. They relieve stomach aches and support digestive health by breaking down proteins. The bromelain in dried pineapple also acts as an immunity-booster so make sure you eat enough pineapple around cold and flu season.
If that isn’t reason enough to love dry pineapple, it’s also a good source of dietary fiber and antioxidants. Dry pineapple is rich in dietary fiber in the form of insoluble fiber. This type of fiber supports the digestive tract to make sure things run smoothly. Insoluble fiber also provides a sense of fullness, so dry pineapple slices are a great option to satisfy hunger between meals. Free radicals are associated with age-related degeneration and disease, but antioxidants help to protect against their damaging effects.
