Recipe: Carrot 6 + Celery 3 oz + Pineapple 3 oz + Lemon 1 oz

Explanation: Fresh pineapple contains bromelain (enzyme) which works as a natural anti-inflammatory substance for swollen and painful joints.

German scientists conducted a study comparing arthritis treatments: Bromelain supplements vs. Diclofenac (Voltaren, a Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Medication).  Bromelain was as effective in reducing pain and inflammation as the medication, but without harmful side effects.
