People with arthritis may have tried several ways to reduce the pain and even treat the problem but not all those people have succeeded in finding the right medication. If you’re one of the people who suffered from inflamed joint problems or inflammation arthritis you may have tried some pharmaceutical drugs and have suffered from side effects that were caused by those pharmaceutical drugs.
Inflamed joints can be a result of unhealthy diet, injuries, arthritis and the like and, with the fact that it causes so much pain to people who suffer from it, there are many who would like to know about reducing the pain. The best way to lessen or reduce the pain of inflamed joints is through dietary methods. Yes, the foods that you eat can greatly affect your joint inflammation.
One thing you should be aware of is that there are many foods that have anti-inflammatory properties. As the name “anti inflammatory” suggests, these foods can help lessen the inflammation in your joints and relieve joint pain. Those are foods which are rich with omega 3 fatty acids like purified fish oil supplements, salmon, and green lipped mussels. Many people have heard of Salmon being rich in Omega 3’s, but the green lipped mussel, of which you may not be aware of is found in New Zealand and it is much known in the United States.
Other anti inflammatory foods include olive oil, grass fed beef, leafy greens, broccoli, cherries and blueberries. Perhaps one of the most potent, and tasty, foods to fight inflamed joints is the spice called Turmeric which has long been used in southern Asian cuisine.
