Peach season is coming up, so what could possibly taste better than some fresh peaches? They have such a wonderful flavour I almost feel spoiled eating them. You can even freeze the peaches before hand if you please and make this smoothie have a colder touch to it.
Peaches are rich in many vital minerals such as potassium, fluoride and iron. Iron is required for red blood cell formation. Fluoride is a component of bones and teeth and is essential for prevention of dental caries. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that help regulate heart rate and blood pressure.
Pineapples contain bromelain enzyme which is a powerful anti-inflammatory (read all about it HERE). This famous pain relieving enzyme has been synthesized and isolated into supplements to treat inflammation and pain naturally. Ginger contains very powerful anti-inflammatory compounds called gingerols. These substances are believed to explain why so many people with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis experience reductions in their pain levels and improvements in their mobility when they consume ginger regularly.
