Pineapple Turmeric Smoothie Recipe

This smoothie tastes wonderful. In addition to a good portion of the RDA of Vitamin C, Iron, Thiamin, Magnesium, Copper, and Manganese, turmeric and bromelain are both excellent anti-inflammatories. Bromelain also aids digestion, and ginger will help settle your stomach and reduce nausea.
