Anti-Inflammatory Pineapple Ginger Smoothie

This smoothie is sure to help ease symptoms of inflammation! If you rather yourself a cool treat for these hot summer days, just freeze the pineapple and mango before blending!

Pineapples contain bromelain enzyme which is a powerful anti-inflammatory (read all about it HERE). This famous pain relieving enzyme has been synthesized and isolated into supplements to treat inflammation and pain naturally. Ginger contains very powerful anti-inflammatory compounds called gingerols. These substances are believed to explain why so many people with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis experience reductions in their pain levels and improvements in their mobility when they consume ginger regularly.
