Pain in knee joints
For more youthful knee joints – or anything that bends – consider whats in your kitchen. These six foods could be your best medicine. Berries, ginger, avocado, flax seed, omega-3- rich fish, and soy. Research shows they help stifle joint damaging inflammation.
On your menu
Try this joint-friendly daily meal plain: Whole- grain cereal or Oatmeal with berries for breakfast, an avocado sandwich or a soy burger for lunch, a handful of walnuts or flax seeds for a snack, and salmon for dinner.
More picks (and pans)
Some other diet do’s and dont’s. Make a fruit bowl with orange and grapefruit chunks. Vitamin C can thwart cartilage loss and slow osteoarthritis progression.
Sip tea: It’s chock full of anti- inflammatory compounds. And green tea may be especially good. Avoid red meat, and skip the sugary and starchy stuff. Pro- inflammatory substances in these foods- like saturated fats in red meat – could spur joint pain or make it worse.
Eating berries for breakfast is good for joints pains.
