Pineapples! Not only are pineapples a deliciously sweet treat, but they're packed with nutrients and vitamin C, aiding in strengthening the immune system and reducing inflammation in the body. Pineapples contain an enzyme called bromelain, which acts as a natural anti-inflammatory. Bromelain has proven to be beneficial in treating arthritis, muscle, and joint pain and swelling.
