Glinda we may be making fun but we are eating it too!! Actually I was curious about pineapple and looked it up - it has something in it called bromelaine, which has all kinds of benefits. Here's one snippet I found that wasn't too difficult to understand:

What Is It?

Bromelain is the name of a group of powerful protein-digesting, or proteolytic, enzymes that are found in the pineapple plant (Ananas comosus). Discovered in 1957, and widely studied since then, bromelain is particularly useful for reducing muscle and tissue inflammation and as a digestive aid. Supplements are made from enzymes found in the pineapple stem.

Health Benefits

Bromelain is a natural blood thinner and anti-inflammatory. It works by breaking down fibrin, a blood-clotting protein that can impede good circulation and prevent tissues from draining properly. Bromelain also blocks the production of compounds that can cause swelling and pain. When inflammation is reduced, blood can move more easily to a traumatized area, easing pain and speeding healing.

I also drank fresh pineapple juice around transfer time.
I also drank pineapple juice for two days prior to, and a whole carton on the evening of, my due date - and pop went my waters!
 
So it seems to work wonders at the other end of things too
