It will fill you with resilience – that’s pineapple’s gift to you. Did you know it takes almost a year for a pineapple to grow? In that time, it grows through every season; Winter, Autumn, Summer & Spring – so, when it comes to resilience, pineapple knows a thing or two! It has that tough, prickly armour that protects the fruit all-year round, so when you eat the flesh, you benefit from the resilience it has stored within. Any wonder pineapple is naturally good for helping us cleanse and remove toxins from our body.
Turmeric has been used in cooking and part of Indian Medicine for thousands of years. Its key ingredient Curcumin is a natural anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. And, when you combine turmeric with black pepper the piperine in black pepper enhances the absorption of curcumin by 2,000% – it makes it more easily absorbed by your body!
Piperine, found in black pepper is an alkaloid like what you find in chilli and cayenne peppers. It helps relieve headaches, nausea, digestive issues and it is also anti-inflammatory. But, when you pair it with Turmeric (as in this smoothie), it plays a vital role in helping your body absorb all of the nutrients from the Turmeric.
