10. Pineapple

The bromelain in pineapple is a well-known reducer of inflammation and can help injuries heal more quickly. Bromelain is also known to improve the digestion process as well as stimulating the liver to make more bile, which helps the body detox itself. Eating just ½ a cup of fresh pineapple each day, or drinking 8 ounces of pure pineapple juice, has been shown in several studies to reduce inflammation and reduce pain.


11. Rosehips

There have been more than 30 studies that have come to the same conclusion: rosehips help to stop arthritis pain. In fact, one study found that subjects had such a drastic reduction in pain that they were able to reduce or stop their medication after just 3 weeks! After 3 months, the group that took rosehip supplements had significant reductions in joint stiffness, and severity of pain. Speak with your doctor about the proper dosage for your particular situation.


12. Red Grapes

Resveratrol is a powerful and unique antioxidant that is not found in very many foods, but it is plentiful in red grapes. (Also in red wine) This compound affects the COX-1 and COX-2 genes which stop inflammation and pain. Red grapes also inhibit the production of nitric oxide, which increases inflammation levels. Red grapes are also a natural diuretic, which means they can detox the body via urine. Eat 1 cup of red grapes each day for best results.


13. Magnesium

This mineral used to be plentiful in our food supply but due to modern day farming methods, this is no longer true. As a result, most Americans are deficient in this vital mineral. Magnesium supports muscle and nerve functions and helps to stop the pain from fibromyalgia, cramps, and migraine headaches. The problem is that magnesium supplements are very difficult for the body to absorb. You can try to consume more via dark chocolate, nuts, seeds, and beans. You can also try making your own magnesium infused lotion or oil to absorb this mineral through the skin or take a bath which contains Epsom salts three times each week so your body can absorb magnesium this way.
