7. Vitamin Powerhouse

Pineapples pack a tremendous nutritional punch, containing vitamins A, C, E, and K, minerals like potassium and calcium, electrolytes and phyto-nutrients like carotene. They are a rich source of anti-oxidants, which fight against free radicals in the body, preventing cell damage. These anti-oxidants can protect you from diseases like atherosclerosis, heart diseases, arthritis and various cancers. Vitamin A and Vitamin C are a boon for the skin as well.
