Cheers to the beginning of a new year 2015! I am so excited to start this year fresh. I have had a lot of crazy things happen last year, and I must say I finally feel like myself again. I have no posted half as much as I wish I did last year. In fact I barely posted at all. I woke up this morning with the realization of how much I missed this blog, and how I would make a point to write more. So you will probably be seeing a lot of new stuff. For today, I will start with something simple that in the past year or two I have fallen in love with more and more. Pineapple! It is natures remedy for almost everything.
The real benefits in Pineapple lie in its numerous minerals and vitamins it contains. They are abundant in vitamin C and bromelain, beta-carotene(Vitamin A), manganese, fiber, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, the list goes on. These vitamins and minerals it contains can fight away flus, prevents free radical damage (and slows cancerous cell growth), strengthens bones, fights for healthy gums, helps regain lost vision, works as an anti-inflammatory, helps cure sore throat, boosts immunity, aids in digestion, prevents hypertension and high cholesterol, relieves nausea, makes skin and nails younger and shiny, thickens hair and prevents hair loss, etc.
Is there anything pineapple doesn’t aid with? That was my thoughts when researching this. It is the one thing I reach for when sick now. I will take a glass of pineapple juice and put a little honey in it. I try my best to stay away from any cold pills for the sick times. This is an excellent addition or substitution to your already made sick care plan.
