Food that helps cellulite reduction - pineapple

It's summer time! And, it's time for pineapple. Of course, you can eat pineapple any time of year, and that's great 'cause I LOVE pineapple. Actually, I love it now even more when I found out how good it is for preventing and reducing cellulite.

So, what is so good about pineapple?
  • preventing and reducing cellulite

It's recommended to eat pineapple after a meal, especially after a meal rich with proteins, as pineapple helps digesting proteins.
Pineapple consists of more than 86% of water and contains many potassium, it helps extracting fluids from tissue, and along with liquid the toxins which cause lumps and speeds cellulite accumulation.

  • antioxidant protection and immune support
Pineapple is full of vitamins that are essential for the immune system.
  • strengthens bones
Pineapples are rich in manganese (trace mineral that is needed for your body to build bone and connective tissues). Just one cup of pineapple provides 73% of the daily recommended amount of manganese.

Nutrients in pineapple (in 155 grams):
  • manganese > 128 % of daily value
  • vitamin C > 40 %
  • vitamin B1 (thiamine) > 10 %
  • copper > 10 % (approx.)
  • dietary fiber > 8 %
  • vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) > 7 %
It is best to eat a fresh pineapple, but a canned one will do also, just make sure there's no sugar added.
