Refreshing Gnamakoudji, Ginger Juice from Côte d’Ivoire

Refreshing Gnamakoudji, Ginger Juice from Côte d’Ivoire

Gnamakoudji (pronounced nyamakūdji) is a refreshing ginger, pineapple juice from Côte d’Ivoire.  It has become one of my favorite pick-me-ups — refreshing and invigorating.

Health Benefits

Personally, I have always adored ginger, as much for its mild spiciness as for its amazing health benefits.  Ginger is especially beneficial during the winter, as it is a powerful infection fighter.  It has also been proven to support cardiovascular health and healthy regulation of blood sugar.

When combined with pineapple, ginger’s health benefits are enhanced.  One cup of fresh pineapple provides 132% of the recommended intake of vitamin C and 76% of manganese.  Pineapple is also the only source of bromelain, which supports a healthy gut and has anti-inflammatory properties.

As you can see, this juice is not only tasty.  It is also extremely healthy and refreshing.  Gnamakoudji is an ideal post-workout refresher, and is also great for giving your immune system a boost.  I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.  Bon appetit!
