Home-made Pineapple Enzyme Banana Protein Blast Smoothie


Banana and Pineapples are a Dynamite Combination. They are not only delicious and convenient, they provide a wide range of health benefits that put them on the top of my grocery list. Enzymes: Not Just for Digestion. Pineapple fruit enzymes like bromelain are proven to be an effective way to assist in treating Sinusitis (sinus inflammation) and inflammation pain. Papain and Bromelain are proteolytic enzymes because they break up biological products like thick mucus.
