Need a little body regeneration? This pineapple ginger smoothie will achieve just that. Loaded with vitamins, minerals, and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients, this sweet and frothy drink will provide your body with substances needed to freshen up intracellular body fluids and loosen the joints.
Pineapple is rich in the enzyme bromelain, which is highly anti-inflammatory and targets stiff joints and aches in the body. Coconut water is also very similar to human blood plasma, making it a great way to revitalize stagnant body fluids.
Celery is another ingredient I decided to add to this smoothie, mainly because it contains a powerful phytonutrient called luteolin, which prevents activation of a pathway that allows inflammation in the brain to get switched on. How cool is that?!
