Turmeric and pineapple: nature's natural anti inflammatory for the muscles and stomach

1 cup fresh pineapple (buy one 'fresh' and core it yourself and slice only what you need every day)
Sprinkle 1/8 tsp turmeric on each cup and eat 1 hour before or 2 hours after meals in order to aid digestion.

Turmeric does not have much of a taste and pineapple is used in curries so this is actually a yummy semi-sweet kick start to your day!

Do you know how these ingredients actually affect the body? If you did you would know that this concoction is actually a fortifier and a revitaliser, not a natural anti-inflammatory. You will find that in Indonesia, it is called jamu.

I think you will find that tumeric and another ingredient equate to an anti-inflammatory but you'll have to find another source from which to regurgitate this from.

Why would you leave such a rude response? Pineapple contains bromelain, a natural anti-inflammatory. Google it.

Not to mention the "coincidence" that bromelain, a special attribute of pineapple, increases the absorbtion of cumerin(?spelling), an important factor in tumeric's health benifits. Cumerin is actually not very bioactive when taken orally. I am researching the relationship and found your recipe... very cool
