This recipe is all about your stomach, which is the first major part of the digestive system. Your stomach has a lot of work cut out for it, including protein digestion. By eliminating the heavy proteins from your diet while detoxing you give your body a rest and reduce acidity. By providing protein-digesting enzymes, along with a nice alkalizing effect this smoothie is great for soothing the stomach and improving digestion. You can add a little ginger or fresh mint to pep it up and support digestion even more.

More about Digestive Enzymes
Enzymes are powerful catalysts that get the metabolic ball rolling. We have added Papaya and Pineapple to this recipe due to their high levels of enzymes. They are two of the richest plant sources, as attested by their traditional use as natural “tenderizers” for meat.
Papain and bromelain are the respective names for the protein-digesting enzymes found in these fruits and these are also included in the Herbal DETOX, Digezaid and BodiTune products to assist in the digestive process.
