Nutritionists advise! Enrich your diet with fish and red fruit and season soups, stews and meat with turmeric.
Fish “lubricates” the joints
Seafood and fish, especially oily ones, are excellent sources of omega 3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA that prevent the occurrence of inflammation and joint pain. Eating two oily fish (salmon, mackerel) a week is enough to provide your body this important ingredient. Besides fish, omega 3 fatty acids can be found in nuts, cold pressed olive oil, beet and eggs.
Red fruits prevent inflammations
Thanks to the strong anti-inflammatory action, strawberries, cherries, currants, mulberry as well as blueberries and black grapes are the best allies against joint pain. These fruits and berries are rich in antioxidants (polyphenols, vitamin C and E, beta carotene), and prevent oxidation of cells. In order to ease the pain, you should eat 45 cherries, 400 grams of black grapes per week, or a handful of red fruit a day.
Turmeric for improved mobility
Numerous studies have confirmed that polyphenols in turmeric effectively block cytokine – a substance that stimulates the occurrence of inflammation. It has been proven that people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis can improve mobility of joints by consuming turmeric. The recommended daily dose of turmeric is 375 mg. For even better mobility it is recommended consumption of ginger.
