Benefits
Pineapple contains cysteine proteases that help in digesting proteins. It also contains bromelain that not only helps in digestion but also acts as an anti-inflammatory agent (80).
Lemon helps in cutting down extra body fat by helping in mobilizing bile from the liver to the small intestine (81).
Cinnamon has antioxidant, anti-clotting, and antimicrobial properties. It also controls the blood sugar levels, improves brain function, protects against heart disease, and has a warming effect on the body (82).
