Perhaps the most feasible way to manage arthritic pain is through nutrition. According to The Brisbane Clinic of Nutritional Medicine, “Diet has been strongly implicated as a cause and therapy for many forms of arthritis. Unfortunately, this aspect is often overlooked and underestimated.”
5 Foods That Can Help Reduce Arthritis Pain
To start with, it is crucial to be aware of and steer clear from “trigger foods.” Trigger foods are those that produce an allergic or otherwise unfavorable bodily response (usually inflammation). Common trigger foods include dairy, red meats, wheat, corn, beef, and nightshade vegetables. Once you’ve identified and are actively avoiding your food triggers, you can turn your attention to nutritional healing.
With that in mind, here are 5 foods that may help significantly reduce arthritis pain.
Apples are loaded with two powerful bioflavonoids, quercetin and rutin. Both inhibit the release of histamine; protect the body from inflammation; boost blood circulation, and promote cellular health.
Other excellent sources of quercetin and rutin include chamomile tea, celery, capers, citrus fruits (orange, grapefruit, lemon, lime), cranberries, green peppers, and onions.
Make that a second non-meat source! Almonds are the most abundant source of vitamin E at 7.3 milligrams (mg) per ounce. Vitamin E helps stabilize cell membranes and, together with zinc, promotes the growth of cartilage.
