Did you know that one portion (300g) of fresh pineapple contains approx 90% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C for an adult and that new research suggests that the fruit could also act as a painkiller. A study by the University of Mosul's college of dentistry looked at the chemical bromelain which pineapple contains and researchers tested its effect on pain and inflammation after dental surgery. It significantly reduced pain comparatively when compared to common anti inflammatory drug diclofenac and a placebo.
