I learned about pineapple water when I visit Hawaii at the lobby of a hotel they give complementary drink to help re-hydrate the guests after they spent too much time on the beach. It's more refreshing than plain water since the fruit adds some subtle sweet taste to the water.
What's great about it is it's not only refreshing but it also helps your body to remove harmful toxins, it also reduces swelling and pain in your joins and it boost your immune system. Pineapples are sweet and very delicious, it has a lot of health benefits too. It is very effective against bloating, water retention, and ugly cellulite. The potassium in it eliminates the excess water in your body. The iron supply your body red blood cells that transport oxygen throughout your whole body.
In a 100-gram serving, raw pineapple is an excellent source of manganese (44% Daily Value [DV]) and vitamin C. Pineapples can help reduce the risk of macular degeneration, a disease that affects the eyes as people age, due in part to its high amount of vitamin C and the antioxidants it contains. Pineapple contains dietary fiber, which is essential in keeping your intestines healthy. It also contains enzyme called bromelain which helps you improve your digestion and fight against inflammatory processes of the organism. The enzyme also fasten your metabolism that leads to weight loss. A 100-gram serving of pineapple is just 40 calories.
