The pineapple (Ananas comosus) is a tropical plant and fruit (berry), native to Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, and Paraguay. The plant is a short (1–1.5 m) herbaceous perennial with 30 or more trough-shaped and pointed leaves 30–100 cm long, surrounding a thick stem. Pineapples are the only bromeliad fruit in widespread cultivation.

The name pineapple in English (or piƱa in Spanish) comes from the similarity of the fruit to a pine cone. The word "pineapple", first recorded in 1398, was originally used to describe the reproductive organs of conifer trees (now termed pine cones). When European explorers discovered this tropical fruit, they called them "pineapples" (term first recorded in that sense in 1664) because it resembled what we now know as pine cones. The term "pine cone" was first recorded in 1695 to replace the original meaning of "pineapple".

Pineapple contains a proteolytic enzyme bromelain, which digests food by breaking down protein. Pineapple juice can thus be used as a marinade and tenderizer for meat. There is significant evidence pointing to the anti-inflammatory benefits of bromelain. Some have claimed that pineapple has benefits for some intestinal disorders while others claim that it helps to induce childbirth when a baby is overdue. Additionally, it is also a good source of manganese, as well as containing significant amounts of Vitamin C and Vitamin B1. Some television ads promote it as a measure to prevent cancer because of the phytochemicals it contains especially the fresh fruit.

It has diuretic properties which increase the urine flow; and as suggested in the previous paragraph, it can also purify your digestive tract in case intestinal disorders such as inflammation set in. Because it is rich in vitamin C and is used in the homeopathic treatment for impotence, it also became considered as an aphrodisiac that invigorates sexual prowess. For aphrodisiac effect, eat with chili powder or mix with honey and rum. A small glass taken daily promotes energies of love.
