This raspberry pineapple smoothie is everything you need to help soothe sore muscles and encourage a healthy lymphatic and circulatory system.
Pineapple contains bromelain, a digestive enzyme that possesses powerful anti-inflammatory properties. It can help reduce inflammation in the muscles, especially after strenuous exercise. It helps enhance blood flow to the muscles too, which in itself is incredibly healing when our muscles are strained.
The lymphatic system is essential to good health, so taking care of it is important. The vitamin C, anti-inflammatory benefits, digestive effects and enzyme content in pineapples helps flush the lymphatic system, and helps promote everyday detoxification.
Raspberries also help move along lymph and keep it from getting stagnant. The high antioxidant content improves lymph flow and helps strengthen the immune system.
