Thanks to SKT who sent me the following article by Jim Healthy. I have been very busy trying to plan my lectures for the whole of 2013 and revamping my materials. Am into Week 18 of the first semester (21 weeks). Sorry for this late update.

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.

The Sweet Pain Reliever

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.
