Scientists have found that pineapple contains Ferulic acid and may help those with Dementia and Alzheimers.  One of the reasons it can do this is because Ferulic acid is an anti-oxidant, but it also appears to be a chelation agent which means it may be able to get rid of various toxins in our bodies. 

Ferulic acid is a type of organic compound. Its name comes from the word Ferula, referring to the giant fennel.

At the moment it is unclear exactly what is chelated by Ferulic acid - some substances are known, but there may be others as yet undiscovered.
