Additional Tips

Some Additional Nutritional Info from Chef Laura Dawn:

Gin­ger is known to be a pow­er­ful anti-microbial, killing bac­te­ria in the sys­tem as well as top­i­cally. Gin­ger is also an anti-inflammatory.

Pineap­ple is sweet juicy and deli­cious and are loaded with vit­a­mins and min­er­als includ­ing vit­a­min A, vit­a­min C, cal­cium, phos­pho­rus, and potas­sium, man­ganese, vit­a­min B1, B6. Pineapple’s high brome­lain con­tent is believed to be respon­si­ble for the fruit’s many health ben­e­fits includ­ing its potent anti-inflammatory qualities.

Oranges are known to be rich in Vit­a­min C, and bananas high in potassium.
