Tennis Elbow? Rheumatoid Arthritis? How to get relief.

Pineapple can give you a useful boost to your health if you add it to your diet. Most people are aware that it contains large amounts of vitamin C, but it also has another benefit which is specific to pineapple.It is a tropical fruit which contains high levels of an enzyme called Bromelain in conjunction with vitamin C. These work together to assist the body's own natural healing and renewal process. Bromelain is also an anti-inflammatory agent, which can help with bruising, and sprains by reducing swelling. This, in turn, reduces pain. Anti-inflammatory can also help to relieve rheumatoid arthritis, so pineapple may have a beneficial affect on this condition.

Anyone suffering from carpel tunnel syndrome or any condition which causes swelling to the joints may benefit from adding pineapple to their diet. Ive used it myself and my tennis elbow is gone and so is my wrist pain. If / when it starts to flare up again I eat pineapple. What i have decided to do is just eat a little pineapple everyday and prevent the flare ups all together.

Bromelain is a protein-digesting enzyme that occurs naturally in pineapples. Bromelain can be taken orally in powder form. Suggested dosage is 1/16 of a teaspoon of Bromelain powder daily with meals as a digestive aid or between meals as an anti-inflammatory. It is sold in powder form as a health supplement from several manufacturers including The Vitamin Shoppe, and Good ‘N Natural. Online retail prices range from $3.04 to $10. 99 for 500 mg of Bromelain in powder form.
