PINEAPPLES


PINEAPPLE NUTRITION

Pineapples are a rich source of phytochemicals - substances naturally found in fruits, 100% fruit juices and vegetables - which have been found to help reduce the risks of certain cancers.

During digestion, our bodies naturally produce "amines" and "nitric acid." When these two substances combine in our stomach, they form "nitrosamines," known to be a cause of cancer. When we eat pineapples, for example, or drink 100% pure pineapple juice, we take in their naturally occurring phytochemicals in our system. These phytochemicals act like magnets that whisk away the "nitric acids" to prevent the harmful union with the "amines." This helps stop cancer before it even begins.

To this day, phytochemicals cannot yet be added to artificial food and powdered drinks. So get a good dose of phytochemicals everyday by eating lots of fruits and vegetables and drinking 100% pure fruit juices.
