Both pineapple and papaya are rich in digestive enzymes - bromelain and papain respectively - that aid in breaking down proteins and improving digestion. These enzymes can help heal and protect the gut, assisting the body's natural digestive process. Moreover, these fruits are excellent sources of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, vitamin A, folate, and potassium, making them incredibly beneficial for overall health.
Mint, in addition to providing a fresh flavor, offers its own health benefits. It is well known for its ability to soothe digestive issues and reduce inflammation.
