About the ingredients:

Grapefruit – is loaded with vitamin C and the antioxidant lycopene, which is shown to reduce inflammation and prevent cell damage. It’s also a great source of fiber and has a high water content (which helps with hydration and satiety). Added bonus, grapefruit helps the body use insulin efficiently, which keeps blood sugar under control and boosts calorie burn.

Pineapple – is packed with nutrients and an important enzyme called bromelain, which metabolizes protein, eases inflammation, and decreases bloating.

Greek yogurt – is an excellent source of calcium, potassium, zinc and B vitamins. It also has protein (to help with satiety) and probiotic cultures for good gut health.

Coconut oil – for the medium-chain fatty acids, which are easily digested, burned for energy, and promote blood sugar stabilization.

Fresh ginger – is amazing for treating nausea and has awesome anti-inflammatory effects.
