Benefits of Pineapples

The Benefits of Pinapple's are so many that we are actually not sure where to start.

Traditional folk medicine credits the pineapple with many healing powers and science has discovered that there is some justification here because the fresh fruit contains a useful enzyme called bromelain.

The skin of the pineapple is where most of the bromelain is located, which is why people who juice for nutritional and medical reasons do not peel or remove the skin beforehand.

So let us start off with a quick recipe on how to make a Pineapple Skin Tea if we want to get these enzymes into our bodies and don't have a juicer.

Benefits of Pineapple for Wrinkles

  • Pineapple is a good source of alpha-hydroxyl acids (AHAs). which are used in a great many skin care products.

  •  It is believed that AHAs help the outer layer of skin to shed old skin cells and grow new ones, and helping to prevent the onset of wrinkles.

  • They are also helpful in rejuvenating sun-damaged skin.

Growing Pineapples at Home

  • Propagation is from the crown, so cut the top part of the pineapple off and place in a glass of water.

  • Keep in a nice warm sunny place and ensure the water does not evaporate from the plant.

  • When the roots have appeared and grown substantially,  it is  time to plant in your  frost free garden in full sun, in a large hole filled with compost, or even in pots as shown above.

  • This plant is drought resistant, so do not be tempted to overwater and do not water into the tuft of leaves.

  • A new fruit will gradually form in the center of the tuft of spiky leaves within a mass of tiny flowers.   One fruit per plant, and care should be taken of the sharp pointed leaves when cutting away the ripened fruits.
