Traditionally, prescription medication is given to patients who suffer from a number of inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis. Unfortunately, this medication comes with its unique set of side effects and risks. There are some people who cannot tolerate the medicine because of a history of digestive problems or peptic ulcer and using them for a long time can increase the risk of kidney or heart diseases. For this reason, it is recommended to explore more natural ways to treat and reduce inflammation. You do not even have to look very far as there are a number of anti inflammatory fruits you can take that will do the work naturally such as:
Of all the cherries in the market, this is the one that shows the best promise when it comes to anti inflammatory fruits. The fruits are rich in anthocyanins - this is a compound that works in the same way as the anti inflammatory medication as it blocks Cox-2 and Cox-1 enzymes that are associated with response to inflammatory. Studies show that drinking cherry juice helps to reduce pain as well as inflammation caused by exercise induced muscle injury. They have also been known to reduce inflammation in the blood stream. It is recommended that it is bought at a natural food market or from a reputable online store and remember to get the one that does not have any added sugar.
This also belongs to the category of anti inflammatory fruits although it does not seem like a likely candidate. The truth is it is rich in bromelain which has been used for a long time to treat various digestive disorders and it is also recognized to its ability to soothe inflammation and pain caused by gout, arthritis, menstrual cramps and muscular injuries. It is however important to note that this is the only time it is advisable to take supplements as the stem of the pineapple is the one that contains the anti inflammatory properties unless you enjoy eating it.
