The benefits of Pineapple

Milk and other products that provide calcium are essential for keeping bones strong. However, there is another element necessary for strong bones – manganese. And one of the best providers of manganese is pineapple.

Manganese is a mineral that goes into the manufacture of collagen. This is a strong protein that helps form the building blocks of bone, skin and cartilage. Studies show that a diet deficient in manganese can lead to bone-weakening problems similar to osteoporosis. A cup of fresh pineapple or pineapple juice delivers 100 percent of your daily need for manganese.
