Try this healing drink. It will reduce inflammation, provide a healthy dose of antioxidants and help your skin, and body, to regain a healthy balance. Its anti-inflammatory properties are thanks to the enzyme bromelain in fresh pineapple (only fresh or frozen will do - canned pineapple has no enzymes left) and the gingerols in
ginger. Extensive research shows that the compounds in ginger may be
