BENEFITS OF PINEAPPLE JUICE
There are a lot of health benefits of drinking pineapple juice!
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 has anti-inflammatory properties 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.
