Inflammation is responsible for many ailments, from upper respiratory infections to muscle sprains.

Pineapple juice may be particularly helpful for minor sports injuries, such as sprained ankles or minor impact bruising. Some studies have shown that it may help also reduce the symptoms of osteoarthritis, although more research is needed.
