  • Organic pineapple has enzymes that support the digestive system and contains micronutrients believed to protect against cancer and blood clots. Organic pineapple juice stimulates the kidneys and aids in removing toxic elements from the body. Organic walnuts assist in lowering LDL (the bad cholesterol) and the CReactive Protein (CRP), which has been recognised as a predictor of heart disease. Olive oil protects the body against inflammation because it contains antioxidants. Olive oil also helps reduce arthritis-related inflammation.
