Winter is in full swing and that means unfortunately, so is flu season. 🤧😷 To keep from getting sick, I try to fill my body with loads of anti-inflammatory foods, stock up on my Shaklee supplements (hello vitalized immunity 💪🏼🍊), and drink plenty of fresh water, to name a few. One of the best things you can do to combat sickness is to keep your gut flora healthy so let’s continue the conversation on gut-friendly foods. I’m shining a bright light on you, #pineapple! Those interested, read on...
Like most fruits and vegetables, pineapple is a rich source of #fiber, but it also contains both soluble and insoluble fiber, which makes it rather unique.
According to the Mayo Clinic, eating pineapple will help keep your intestines healthy.
Unlike most fruits and vegetables, pineapple is a rich source of #bromelain, an enzyme that promotes the breakdown of protein, possibly helping digestion.
The numerous benefits of vitamin C are well known, but that special enzyme, bromelain, has been shown to reduce mucus and phlegm built up in the respiratory tracts and sinus cavities, aiding those with cold/flu-like symptoms
These are just a few of the many benefits to eating pineapple! Drop a 🍍 in the comments if you love eating pineapple!
