What better than to make Mum on Mothers Day a healthy Pineapple Ginger and Lime drink. This Pineapple Ginger and Lime drink is rich in antioxidants and helps to aid digestion, and gently cleanse and alkalize the body.
This pineapple ginger and lime drink offers a number of nutritional benefits. Pineapple is a good source of vitamin c (which helps support the immune system) and magnesium (which is essential for proper nerve and muscle function). Pineapple contains a nutrient called bromelain which is a proteolytic that provides cleansing benefits and helps support digestion by breaking down protein. Limes are also a good source of Vitamin C, and contain flavonoid compounds that have antioxidant and anti-cancer properties. Ginger is a potent anti-inflammatory and it stimulates digestion and aids in proper absorption of nutrients from foods. As for turmeric, it’s in the ginger family and it’s a great anti-inflammatory. It offers cardio protection, it helps lower bad cholesterol. It protects against Alzheimer’s disease, and it may help to prevent certain types of cancer, and studies have shown that it inhibits cancer cell growth and metastases (meaning it keeps cancer from spreading).
