Pineapple Power Juice
Did you know pineapples naturally contain bromelain, a digestive enzyme that has been shown to reduce pain and inflammation? Many physicians recommend bromelain supplements after surgery, but it’s more delicious in the form of homemade juice.

- ½ a pineapple, with skin
- ½ a papaya, seeded & sliced
Start with the ginger, then add the papaya and pineapple to your juicer. This simple recipe is quick, easy, and tasty. Strain, drink, and keep on healing!
