The joints and knees have the most important function in the body – thanks to them, you can hold a right posture, stand, walk, run and jump. But, over time, they can become damaged by injuries and wounds, losing their natural lubrication, while the ligaments and tendons lose their flexibility. The knees, ligaments and tendons must be kept strong and ready as you get older. If they are not flexible and strong, they won’t provide proper support to your body.
To achieve this, we have a natural smoothie recipe that will help restore the natural lubrication to the connective tissues and knees and reinforce their structure. It will improve your lifestyle as well.
The smoothie is based on three powerful natural ingredients: pineapple, cinnamon and oats. It will provide you with great amounts of vitamin C, silicon, magnesium and bromelain. All these nutrients possess strong anti-inflammatory properties as well as the ability to block pain. Here’s how to prepare it:
250 ml. of water
A cup of instant oatmeal
40 gr. of honey
2 cups of pineapple chunks
A cup of fresh orange juice
7 gr. of cinnamon
40 gr. of crushed almonds
Cook the oatmeal first, and stir in the fresh orange juice. While it simmers, add the pineapple chunks, honey, almonds and cinnamon in your blender and process them on high speed until the mixture is smooth. Add the previously cooked oatmeal in the blender and continue mixing until the mixture is homogenous. For a colder smoothie, add some ice cubes and enjoy!
