  The Effective Sweet Treat
that Relieves Arthritis Pain
This is the best e-mail I have received, I tell you why. 
Some of you know that I have osteoarthritis stabilized by knee exercises
and Glucosamine and Controntin for the last 8 years while a few of my peers
had knee replacement during this time. Last November I went to Hanoi Bay
and did quite a bit of climbing that aggravated the pain in my right knee
and started the pain in the left. Still I persisted with my medication and
knee exercises. It gave relieve up to 70%.
One of my favourite fruits is pineapple. I realize that for weeks since my
trip to Hanoi I have not eaten any pineapple. I really missed that so went
out to purchase one. Walloped one big piece heartily. Lo and behold, next
morning when I started my exercises, the pain was nearly gone. There was
around 95% relieve. Thinking it was the benefit of the exercises I
increased the momentum another 5 to 10 minutes.

Later in the day I began to think how could the pain decrease so much
overnight. Aha. only difference was the pineapple that I ate. Yes you
guessed it, I went and walloped some more and obtained more relieve . 
Back to before I went to Hanoi Bay. Happy but too shy to tell anyone 
until my sister rang up to inform of her
Back ache and unable to stand straight. Rebuked her for not doing anything
Like rubbing ointment or seeing a Dr. Jokingly informed her of my pineapple
Experience. Laughingly she said she was going to try that. A week or so
Later she came over and proudly showed me that she could walk straight
Without any pain. With thumb up she informed that the pineapple worked.

So friends if you or anyone you know have arthritis pain, pineapple Is
Worth the try. I dare to inform you after receiving this e-mail.

In Christ love, * The Effective Sweet Treat that Relieves Arthritis Pain*
By Jim Healthy On  October 19th, 2012 
Did you know that there are certain kinds of foods that actually help
Reduce or even stop arthritis pain?
These "Superfoods" are usually easy to find and inexpensive.
Of all the foods that help fight against arthritis -- delicious, sweet
Pineapple comes up close to the top of the list.

For generations, people around the world have used fresh pineapple to ease
Their arthritis Inflammation.
Loaded with joint-protecting vitamin C, pineapple is undoubtedly a superior
Arthritis-healing food.
Its anti-inflammatory ingredient -- bromelain –
 is so potent that many
Boxers drink the juice after fights to heal their bruises.
A 1960 study compared boxers who took bromelain with those receiving a
Placebo. In just four days, an amazing 78% of those taking bromelain were
Inflammation-free, while only 14% of the control group had recovered.

Other than bromelain, pineapple also contains manganese, which strengthens
Bones and protects joints.
Here are 5 reasons you should be indulging in this delicious fruit if you
Struggle with joint pain and arthritis:

*Reason #1: Joint Protection*
Higher intake levels of the antioxidant vitamin C is essential for people
With arthritis...And just one cup of pineapple has a whopping 94% of the
Recommended daily Allowance (RDA)!
Research published in the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases showed that
Vitamin C-rich foods protect against inflammatory polyarthritis, a type of
Rheumatoid arthritis in which two or more joints are affected.
If you have osteoarthritis, you may be concerned by warnings that you
Should not increase your vitamin C intake. But know that those warnings are
Based on a 2004 study on guinea pigs!
Studies on humans show vitamin C actually reduces pain, cartilage loss and
Disease progression.

*Reason #2: Healthier Joint Tissue*
Pineapple is a great source of the trace mineral manganese.
Manganese is absolutely essential for building healthy joint tissue and
Dense bones. One cup of pineapple provides 128% of the RDA for manganese.
Research shows that manganese tackles free radicals that can damage joint
Tip: It's best to eat your pineapple raw. Fruit skewers alternating fresh
Pineapple chunks with strawberries is a great way to do that. Grilled and
Cooked pineapple is extraordinarily tasty too.

*Reason #3: Smoother Joint Movement*
Pineapple's enzymes literally clean up "rusty" joints. When you eat
Pineapple on an empty stomach, the enzymes go right to work on your joints.
Tip: If you eat the pineapple with other foods, the enzymes divert their
Activity to digesting the rest of your meal instead of the gunk in your
So keep pineapple around for between-meal snacks. Juice the hard inner core
As well to take advantage of the concentrated bromelain located there.

*#4: Pain Relief*
For optimal arthritis pain-relief, eat fresh pineapple. The bromelain in
Pineapple is destroyed by heat, so fresh pineapple will give you the most
Frozen pineapple retains active Enzymes, but canned fruit and commercially
Processed juice doesn't provide the anti-inflammatory benefit of fresh fruit.
It's important to note bromelain causes anti-clotting activity...
So you should consult with your physician before combining pineapple with
Blood-thinning medications such as warfarin (Coumadin), heparin, or aspirin.
Tip: If the fruit needs to ripen, keep it on your kitchen counter for a
Couple days. You'll know it's sweet and ready to eat when the bottom
Softens a bit.

*Reason #5: Protection from Inflammation*
Pineapple's bromelain halts inflammation. The sulfur-based enzyme bromelain
in fresh pineapple is one of the best-researched natural anti-inflammatory
Agents around.
Bromelain clobbers inflammatory agents that trigger joint pain and
Cartilage degeneration.
A 2006 study Cited in Clinical and Experimental Rheumatology found that
Supplemental bromelain is effective in easing discomfort from hip arthritis.
The Arthritis Foundation stated that pineapple's bromelain produces effects
Comparable to NSAIDs for relieving pain and inflammation.
UK researchers reviewed ten studies on osteoarthritis and bromelain. They
Found that every single one confirmed bromelain's benefits.

Most of the bromelain in pineapples is 
found in the core and the stem.
So don't throw away that tough, fibrous core!

Just chop it up, throw it in a blender with 
some water and pulse to convert
it to juice.
