Malagos Pineapple JamWith the rising number of positive coronavirus cases in the country, it is important to strengthen your immune system. With your safety, comfort, and satisfaction in mind, we’ve launched Malagos Homegrown Produce’s new product, a Pineapple Jam made from homegrown pineapples.

Pineapple jam is the perfect, nutritious, sweet spread to rejuvenate your drowsy mornings or a sweet treat after a long, draining day. Pineapple’s juiciness and vibrant tropical flavor is the perfect balance between sweet and piquant taste. On top of pineapple’s richness in taste, studies show that it has a lot of health benefits. In an article by Farid, MD. in the International  Journal of Nutrition and Food Sciences, “Pineapple contains a considerable amount of calcium, potassium, vitamin C, carbohydrates, crude fiber, water and different minerals that is good for the digestive system and helps in maintaining ideal weight and balanced nutrition. Fresh pineapples are rich in bromelain that is used as an anti-inflammatory, reducing swelling in inflammatory conditions such as acute sinusitis, sore throat, arthritis, gout.” 

You might be wondering, there are already a lot of pineapple jams out there, what makes Malagos’ different? 

Malagos Homegrown Produce ensures farm-fresh, artisan, and homegrown products. This means that the pineapples used in our jams are sure to have reached their peak ripeness before being harvested, and are made with utmost refined gentleness to ensure that the nutrients are not stripped off the pineapple fruit in the process of making the jam.

Homegrown pineapples’ health benefits are endless. Here’s a list that will get you going:

ANTIOXIDANT PROTECTION AND IMMUNE SUPPORT 

Vitamin C is the body's primary water-soluble antioxidant, defending all aqueous areas of the body against free radicals that attack and damage normal cells. Free radicals have been shown to promote the artery plaque build-up of atherosclerosis and diabetic heart disease, cause the airway spasm that leads to asthma attacks, damage the cells of the colon so they become colon cancer cells, and contribute to the joint pain and disability seen in osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. In addition, Vitamin C is vital for the proper function of the immune system.

EXCELLENT SOURCE OF FIBER

Fiber has the ability of regulating proper digestion and bowel movement. If the food intake is digested accordingly, the nutrients they contain will be absorbed well by the body. Plus digestive tracks are cleared for smooth digestive processing thus avoiding issues such as constipation.

KEEPS YOUR BODY HYDRATED.

This fruit has high water content that helps keep your body hydrated. Hydration is important for the body to function accordingly. If you are dehydrated, you will experience loss of energy and tiredness which is not really the condition you want to be in considering your daily activities and duties. This will boost your energy and have you prepared for anything life throws at you today!
