Pineapple-Pom (Pain-Relieving) Smoothie

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

This is a light green and nutritious smoothie that is super easy to make for a breakfast on the run, a mid-morning snack or an afternoon pick up instead of that coffee or chocolate. And you have to love the pomegranates in this smoothie that are high in antioxidants and nutrients — the extract in studies shows promise in helping reduce joint pain and decrease inflammation in arthritis sufferers, according to research published in the Israeli Medical Association Journal. This is another great nutrient rich recipe that may help reduce the pain of arthritis.
