6 Fruits that are good for arthritis – Pineapple

Pineapple

We spoke recently about vitamins and minerals that are good for arthritis and pineapple is an excellent source of a number of these. 

They contain iron, magnesium, vitamin C and also have small amounts of zinc, vitamin K and calcium.

Pineapples are, like the others, an excellent source of antioxidants which I think we have covered now so I won’t go into repeating the same old info.

They also contain a digestive enzyme called bromelain, this is very important to us as bromelain is an anti-inflammatory and studies have shown that people with arthritis who were given a bromelain supplement found it was as effective at relieving pain as pharmaceutical anti-inflammatories.

Pineapples are a delicious, tasty fruit and you can put them on cereal, yoghurt or just use it as a snack when you’re craving something sweet.

Words of warning: People can be allergic to pineapples and it can cause diarrhoea, they can also amplify the effect of any blood-thinning medicine that people may be taking.
