Pineapple is naturally endowed with bromelain. However, doctors have been using synthetic bromelain to treat several conditions, such as cancer, blood clots, and arthritis. Bromelain is the name given to certain enzymes in pineapple that have the ability to dissolve protein. In some people, lack of proper absorption of protein leaves an ammonia residue in the system resulting in uric acid accumulation.
Anthocyanin gives the deep red color to beets, flowers, plants, fruits, and vegetables. For example, anthocyanins from Hibiscus sp have historically been used in liver disfunction and hypertension; and bilberry (Vaccinium).
This simple three-ingredient juice is sweet and refreshing, with the pineapple adding a beach vibe that makes you feel like you are on vacation and the beautiful red-hue of the juice giving you exotic tropical vibes. Add in the fresh lemongrass scent, and you have yourself a sweet and aromatic nutritional powerhouse.
The secret to the sweetest Pine Beet AB is a well-ripened pineapple. There are two tips to telling if your pineapple is ripe. One, you gently pull one of the center leaves of the pineapple, and if it comes right off, you have ripe fruit in your hand, and two is a sweet ripe pineapple scent from the fruit itself without peeling.
For nutritional benefits, the peels of pineapple made to tea are common. Boil the peels with ginger and turmeric and make a sweet and spicy tea loaded with anti-fungal and anti-viral properties.
Pine Beet AB
Nutritional Benefits: Beets get their beautiful red hue from anthocyanins, a very powerful class of antioxidants that boost cardiovascular health by making blood vessels elastic and preventing plaque from forming. Beets additionally promote brain health and digestive health via minerals such as potassium and magnesium. Pineapple is great for digestive health and contains bromelain, an enzyme that helps dissolve proteins and thus boosting muscle tissue repair. Lemongrass has been predominantly used to heal yeast and bacterial infections in traditional medicine. It is also a great anti-inflammatory, thanks to potent antioxidants.
