In this section of Seattle Organic Restaurants I want to talk about the health benefits of two great superfoods, pineapple and mango.

Pineapple: Pineapples have unique flavor and taste and known for their juiciness and sweetness. Pineapple is full of nutrients, vitamins and minerals such as fiber, vitamin B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, C and E, protein, zinc, phosphorous, manganese, calcium, sulfur, potassium and iron.


Pineapple is anti-inflammatory fruit that helps to reduce swelling in conditions such as allergies, arthritis, sore throat and sinus. Pineapple also reduces the recovery time from surgeries, injuries and treats illnesses such as arteriosclerosis and anemia. Pineapple reduces the chances of blood clotting; the calcium in pineapple helps to build up healthy bones. Pineapple is a rich source of vitamin C reducing colds and periodontal diseases and building up the body’s immune system. Pineapple is also rich in sulfur that helps to digest our food.

Mango: Mango is a very popular fruit with unique flavor and taste rich in nutrients, fiber, minerals, vitamins and antioxidant compounds. Mango is a rich source of vitamin A, B6, C and E, potassium, copper, manganese and zinc. Mango has been known treating cancers such as breast, colon, prostate and leukemia. Vitamin A in mango improves healthy skin, mucus membrane, eye sight at night, dryness of the eyes and itching or burning eyes. Vitamin E in mango boosts sex driver. The potassium in mango helps with blood pressure and controlling heart rate.


The high source of vitamin C in mango helps with increasing the body’s immune system against foreign invaders and helps with iron absorption. The copper in mango protects the red blood cells; mango peels are high in phytonutrients such as polyphenols and carotenoids. The live enzymes in mango help with food digestion and preventing constipation, stomach inflammation, morning sickness and chronic dyspepsia.

Mango helps diabetes by normalizing the level of insulin in the blood and not increasing the level of blood sugar. Mango is also beneficial for anemia, menopause and pregnant women. Mango helps to boost memory in children who don’t have high concentration. Mango also is a rich source of pectin and great for preventing heart strokes and heat exhaustion in summer. Mango is really good for gaining weight; 100 grams of mango has 75 calories.
