Why Pineapple is Better Than Orange Juice

As the days get shorter and the temperature drops the advice of our mums from winters gone by rings in our ears every day. Wrap up warm, eat lots of hearty meals, and the age old favourite drink vats of orange juice. But there comes a time when mums don't necessarily know best, and this just happens to be one of them. Orange juice isn't a bad option when it comes to staving off colds, it's just that pineapple juice is better.

Vitamin C
Whilst orange juice is a great source of vitamin C - an essential tool for fighting the office lurgy - it is not the only way to get your vitamin boost. Pineapple juice is high enough in vitamin C to give you a daily dose and keep the germs at bar

The Power Of Bromelain
Bromelain is one of those super enzymes found in pineapples (and not in oranges). When you succumb to of office lurgy (and let's face s, it happens to us all at least once year) Bromelain is one of the things you really want on your side. Here's how it works
  • Bromelain is a natural anti-inflammatory so if your throat and glands are threatening to blow like a balloon.
  • It will help to sooth your cough and thin your mucus helping your body to get rid of it more effectively
  • The bromelain will also help to ease the aches and pains that come with getting a cold

Sensitive Tummy
Orange juice is acidic so can be pretty rough on the tummy - not the best thing if you're already feeling a bit ropey. Pineapple juice is less acidic and is also great for settling your tummy after food.

So next time you hear the tell tale sound of your colleague sneezing from accross the room. Get yourself some fresh pineapple juice or chunks.

Keep the office in tip top shape by adding some individual of pineapple chunks to your office fruit delivery
