Best food to overcome arthritis

Latest research suggests that there is an intricate relationship between what a person eats and how it can affect their joint health. From anti-inflammatory fruits and vegetables to immune-boosting bacteria.

Notably, the most common type of arthritis is osteoarthritis and is caused by a wearing-away of the cartilage covering the ends of the bones.

Mediterranean diet: Rich in fruit, vegetables, wholegrain cereals, legumes, nuts, and supplemented with small amounts of fish, lean meat and olive oil, it’s naturally high in health-giving compounds like antioxidants, omega-3 and monounsaturated fats, which help the heart, and unrefined carbohydrates, to aid digestion.Below are the types of foods that overcome arthritis.

Having yogurt: A new area of research points to the importance of gut health when managing arthritis, particularly in those with rheumatoid arthritis.

Consuming oats: It turns out that a bowl of porridge a day could help diminish the pain of osteoarthritis.

If you’re not a fan of Oats, add a daily 30g of nuts or 25g of soya protein into your diet, which can be found in soy milk and edamame beans.

Eating fish: Oily fish can help ease joint pain because it’s rich in omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids.

It’s generally recommended that you should aim to eat one or two portions a week.

Eat steaks: Arthritis can raise the risk of anaemia, a deficiency of red blood
Eating beef or lamb, as part of a balanced diet, can be a great source of protein and micro-nutrients, including iron.

Drink milk: Arthritis makes one more susceptible to developing osteoporosis, a weakening of the bones.

The recommended daily amount of 700mg can easily be obtained from three portions of dairy a day.
