Nutritional value that are found in Aloha shake
Grenadine is a syrup usually made from red currants and pomegranates. It is regularly used as an ingredient for many cocktails that serves as a sweetener and for coloring. Nutrients found in grenadine are calories where on the other hand the fruits that were used in preparing aloha shake contain other nutrients as well. Take a look at pineapples that provides digestive enzymes called Bromelain, minerals such as Copper and manganese, vitamins such as vitamin C and vitamin B1, carbohydrates, calories and fiber. Let me provide benefits that you can get from pineapples. Bromelain for example is a digestive enzyme when taken with meals aids in the digestion of proteins. Upon breaking these proteins in the body it turns it into amino acids. Manganese is important in the formation of bones and activation of certain enzymes in the body. Copper assists in the absorption of iron and regulates blood pressure and heart rate. Vitamin C or also known as Ascorbic acid on the other hand improves our immune system against common illnesses such as flu. As mentioned a while ago pineapples also contain vitamin B1 that allows cells in our body to convert carbohydrates into energy. Vitamin B1 is also crucial for red blood cell formulation. Fiber in the body if increased lowers blood cholesterol which in turn lowers risk of heart disease. Together with this, other conditions such as diabetes and constipation are lessening.
Watermelon which is also used as an ingredient in this drink has its own nutritional properties as well. Low Calories obtained from watermelon because of water. Water makes the bulk of the fruits flesh which is an ideal dessert for dieters who are trying to lose weight. Fiber is also available in watermelon as well as essential vitamins and minerals such as Vitamins A and C. As I explained earlier, Vitamin A is good for our vision and Vitamin C helps us tackle common illnesses caused by stress from work. Watermelon is also a good source of Potassium which helps regulate blood pressure to help prevent hypertension. Another nutrient found in watermelon is a compound called Lycopene. This compound acts as an antioxidant which may lower the risk of having cancer. Research shows that watermelon is one of the fruits that are rich in lycopene.
Last of the ingredients in this recipe which is orange juice has its own nutritional contributions. Like most fruits, orange juice is a source of calories. Compared to other fruits the citrus family is the most abundant source of vitamin C that can also serve as an antioxidant in the body fighting free radicals that can damage cells that can lead to cancer. Other nutrients in orange juice include folic acid; thiamine and magnesium. Fiber is also available in orange juice that helps lower cholesterol and blood sugar.
