According to Dr. Andrew Weil pineaple is good not only a tropical fruit with a sweet and tangy taste. When fresh, it is an excellent source of manganese and vitamin C, as well as a good source of bromelain - a natural anti-inflammatory that is helpful for addressing the symptoms of sinusitis, gout, and arthritis, and for swelling and bruising.
Pineapple is versatile - can be eaten plain, in a smoothie or fruit salad, or can also be used in relishes or to add sweetness to dishes such as pizza. Because pineapple has an intermediate score of 66 on the Glycemic Index, diabetics looking for low-index fruits should eat cherries and apples more often than they eat pineapple.
