Pineapple Gazpacho Recipe

Pineapple can flatten your tummy, prevent stomach distention and help your body burn a few extra calories. Additionally, pineapple contains an important enzyme: Bromelain, which is found in the stem and within the juice of a pineapple. Classed as a proteolytic enzyme, Bromelain helps in breaking down proteins and exists in the stem and the juice of a pineapple. Scarce scientific proof definitively links Bromelain to weight loss, however, a properly functioning digestive system contributes to overall health as well as weight loss and weight maintenance.
