Pineapples are an excellent source of vitamin C which is great for the skin, hair and nails. They also contains the digestive enzyme bromeliad, manganese for antioxidant defences, and they also contain high amounts of thiamin, a B vitamin that is involved in energy production.

- 2 celery stalks
- 1 medium beet
- 2 carrots
- 2 mini cucumbers
- 4 strips of pineapple
- handful of parsley
- 1 inch cube ginger
