Why should you drink smoothies?
Smoothies have an advantage over juice as they contain all parts of a plant, including fibre. Fruit is a natural source of plant fibre which supports the proper functioning of your digestive system. Multiple studies also show that providing your body with the right amount of fibre every day helps to maintain a healthy weight and regulates digestion. Fibre also ensures the proper functioning of intestinal microbiota which has a great influence on our immunity.
Pineapples are a great source of antioxidants. They contain many various antioxidant groups, including vitamins, polyphenols and minerals essential for the proper functioning of antioxidant enzymes. Pineapples are high in vitamin C, β-carotene and many other health-promoting substances. One of them is bromelain. It has strong regenerative and anti-inflammatory properties, facilitates digestions, relieves pain, regulates the immune system and improves wound healing.
Acerola is a type of cherry which has strong antioxidant properties. It is considered to be one of the best and richest sources of natural vitamin C. It is also worth remembering that acerola is high in other antioxidants, e.g. polyphenols. Such a high content of antioxidants means that acerola helps to fight infections in many various ways, supports our immune system, reduces inflammation and has antimicrobial properties.
The medicinal properties of turmeric are mainly based on a high content of substances which have antioxidant effects. The extracts of this spice reduce inflammation and oxidative stress, support the immune system and have antibacterial properties. Turmeric has been used in medicine in Asia for centuries in order to treat such diseases as atherosclerosis, obesity and diabetes. Turmeric helps to improve the lipid profile, maintains the proper cholesterol level, sensitizes tissues to insulin action and reduces blood pressure.
