Pineapple has been part of traditional folk medicine since ancient times posessing an abundance of vitamins, minerals and enzymes, especially vitamin C, and essential mineral manganese - it aids metabolism, helps regulate blood sugar, and contributes to decreased inflammation - a potent source of disease-fighting antioxidants , known as flavonoids.
Pineapples are not only a delicious tropical fruit but are rich in digestive enzymes known as bromelain, which can help aid digestion. It is now accepted that gut health is key when it comes to our general health and wellbeing. A healthy and effective digestive system informs how we function and how we feel.
The anti-inflammatory properties of bromelain have also been shown to aid recovery after strenuous exercise, and even help bruising and pain after surgery by reducing tissue inflammation.
Studies show that the nutrients contained within pineapples can lower the risk of viral and bacterial infection and will collectively boost the immune system.
Apples contain pectin, for a healthy gut, but it is their anti-inflammatory polyphenol, and potassium content, which also maintain a healthy heart.
Studies even suggest that the juice from apples can help preserve neurotransmitters in the brain involved with memory.
Coconut water is a naturally great way to replenish electrolytes and restores hydration.
Electrolytes are crucial to keeping your nervous system and muscles functioning and our internal environment balanced.
Coconut water keeps you refreshed and can moderate blood sugars, while the potassium aids heart health. There is strong evidence to suggest that it also helps prevent the formation of kidney stones.
Gingerol contained in ginger, is a highly effective anti-inflammatory and powerful antioxidant, also shown to lower blood sugar. It can settle and calm digestive issues, help with joint pain, ease nausea, and fight infection – Which is why we say ginger is most definitely a ‘superfood’ worthy of the name!
