I know that talking about pineapple and tropical weather typically conjures up images of happily drinking Pina Coladas by the pool but did you know that pineapples also carry an impressive list of other benefits for you? Other than being choc-full of vitamin C, antioxidants, flavonoids that help fight cancer cells and reduce early signs of aging, it also contains an enzyme called bromelain that aids in the digestion of protein (some would argue that pineapple does belong on a Ham & Pineapple pizza then!). Bromelain also helps boost your immune system and suppress inflammation which has been shown to help reduce swelling and pain. A mineral of note is manganese which helps maintain a healthy metabolism (hello resistance to sneaky weight gain - yay).
Do you need any more reasons to get pineapple into you this summer? If you're looking for some icy cold pineapple beverages to quench your thirst (or make some healthy Christmas cocktails with) then check out our range of pineapple juices:
Pine Ginger Splice
All 3 juices are part of our Just Juice and Juice & Soup cleanses too.
Get your pineapple on ;)
