Wellness Wordy Wednesday :: Pineapple Juice, All-Natural Belly Flattener

Welcome to Wellness Wordy Wednesday! Today’s tip is Pineapple Juice and it’s stomach flattening benefits! You heard me correctly. While watching Dr. Oz one day, he did a 35 year old Survival Kit and I was all eyes and ears. If there is anything I can do naturally that will give me the best quality of life “health wise” I will surely pay attention.

Relieve Bloating: Pineapple Juice

Of course, avoiding salty and fatty foods is important, but as we age, hormonal changes make a flat belly harder and harder to achieve even if you watch what you eat. After 35, your sex hormones fluctuate, making your body retain more water and your GI tract not as efficient, resulting in bloating.

Keep your belly in check with pineapple juice, an all-natural belly flattener! Just one small can a day contains digestive enzymes (known as bromelain) that help break down the food in your gut that could otherwise cause bloating and gas.

Want an even easier way to drink it? Make pineapple juice ice cubes; six cubes a day in your water will help boost your metabolism thanks to the cold, and they’ll digest slowly for daylong digestive relief.  Source

Ever since I heard this I have been buying Pineapple Juice. I don’t make the ice cubes because I actually like the taste alone. What I have been doing lately is replacing the orange juice I use for smoothies with Pineapple Juice. That way I get my 8oz a day. If I don’t make a smoothie, I will usually drink my 8oz with dinner.

Is it working? I hope so!! (Just being honest!) I work out and eat good so my stomach is coming down – remember I just had a baby! Like I said before, if it’s good for you – I will try to fit it in to my routine.

    Also great for muscle cramps. I’m a diabetic so the sugar content even if it’s natural should be considered as well.
