Today, a recent medical study reported that pineapple fruit juice is an antidote for arthritis, with a number of studies showing that it can reverse inflammation.
Pineapple is a good source of vitamin C and the enzyme bromelain, which has been shown to reduce pain and swelling in rheumatoid arthritis, according to the British Daily Express.
The study indicated that bromelain's anti-inflammatory effect stems from its ability to enhance the production of two essential compounds that work to reverse inflammation, as enzyme derivatives have been used in nutritional supplements to treat acute infections and sports injuries.
Among the various ways to boost dietary intake of bromelain to relieve joint pain is to eat fresh pineapple or drink its juice, as it has been shown to be more beneficial than taking it in supplements.
Organic compounds known as polyphenols found in pineapple can also help relieve pain caused by osteoarthritis.
These compounds improve joint flexibility and general movement.
