Happy Friday, everyone! If you’re planning on a wild weekend, take a moment to infuse your water with pineapple. It supports your immune system with a healthy dose of vitamin C and your metabolism with B6, which means you’ll have all the energy you need to keep you going! If the weekend fun happens to get extra wild, pineapple also happens to be great for nursing a hangover. In fact, it’s great for treating a lot of things that affect your mood and stomach like PMS or nausea. Studies have also shown that supplements and foods rich in vitamin B6 can help prevent cancer. People suffering from cancer are often recommended eat more foods like pineapple to limit the progression of the disease.
It’s easy to see that pineapple has every reason to be the life of the party, but there is a downside to this wonder-fruit. Unfortunately, pineapple can be pretty tough on your teeth. So don’t start keeping its acidic juice directly in contact with your smile. Drinking pineapple juice through a straw and/or diluted as an infusion in water will reduce the wear on your enamel. For best results, let a few cubes infuse in your water for an hour or two in the fridge before drinking it. You can experiment by adding mint or basil for more complex flavours we know you will love!
