Cellulite Fighting Foods #18: Pineapple

Who doesn't love a bit of pineapple in a smoothie or--even better--in a pina colada on a hot day? Thankfully, this delicious fruit is also one of the best to eat to fight your cellulite. Pineapples are loaded with Vitamin C, which helps your skin to produce the collagen that protects it from cellulite. It's also rich in the water-draining potassium, ensuring that your body doesn't retain water and look puffy thanks to the cellulite.   [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="620"] Source: secretmenuholic.com[/caption] One unique compound found in pineapples is bromelain. This enzyme helps your body to digest proteins more effectively, and prevents the buildup of fibrins in your arteries, veins, and capillaries. It will help to boost circulation, increasing the amount of nutrients that your blood delivers to your skin. Bonus benefits: The tasty tropical fruit can help to prevent the degeneration of your eyes, fight asthma, decrease blood pressure, fight the free radicals that can cause cancer, protect against prostate cancer, inhibit the growth of carcinogens in the digestive system, and lower your risk of colorectal cancer.
