Diet For Joint Pain
Hello and welcome to medsimplified. Chronic joint pain affects millions of people across the world. Every year, thousands of patients routinely seek medical attention for joint pain, and it is one of the leading causes of disability.
To give you an estimate of the disease, in 2002, about 10.5 million people in the United States said they experienced severe joint pain, but. But by 2014, that number had jumped to 14.6 million. That is according to the researchers from the United States center of Disease Control and Prevention, severe joint pain can limit a person’s ability to perform basic functions and seriously compromise their quality of life.
Joint pain, in medical terms is known as arthrolasia, which is as common as the flu and can be caused by a wide range of problems such as bad posture, overuse and misuse of joints, like in case of athletes such as footballers, sprinters and tennis players. Nutritional deficiencies in the diet, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, certain neurological problems, kidney and liver problems, just to name a few.
Luckily, with strict precautions, good exercise, proper diet and supplementation, joint pain can be managed.

Oily fish can reduce joint pain and morning stiffness as it contains unsaturated fats such as ecosapentinoic acid and docohexanoic acid which is EPA and DHA. EPA and DHA also limit the production of certain negative proteins that inhibit certain types of arthritis.
The omega three fatty acids present in fish also increase blood flow throughout the body during exercise, which can help reduce joint pain and swelling. It is recommended that each person should consume at least two to four weekly servings of fish like salmon or sardines.
It’s hard for many people to consume such quantities, hence, omega three fish or krill oil supplement can help support joint health. I have put links to some of the best fish oil supplements in the description box down below so you can check them out.
Walnuts and Brazil nuts like oily fish, walnuts are a rich vegetarian alternative source of omega three fatty acids which reduces inflammation. Also, eating walnuts regularly can lower cholesterol, relax blood vessels to lessen stress on the heart and reduce blood pressure.
Brazil nuts are high in selenium, which improves the quality of cartilage proteins present in our bones and joints. Snack on three or four each ray and you should get all you require. Selenium also helps to boost your immunity, which is very important considering the pandemic.

You might be surprised, but your mom was right when she told you to eat broccoli. Broccoli, cauliflower and cruciferous vegetables have shown to protect against the development of arthritis and joint pain.
These also contain antioxidants like keratinoids, which fight free radicals in the body and prevent the damage to our cells and tissues. Not only do free radicals damage our cells, they also have been linked to rheumatoid arthritis and inflammation.
Green leafy vegetables like broccoli, spinach, brussels sprouts, kale, swiss guard and bok choy are packed with antioxidants and vitamins like vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin K, which protects the cells from free radical damage. These foods are also high in bone preserving calcium.
Onions and garlic onions are a rich source of quercetin, an antioxidant that works to reduce inflammation. Red onions are particularly high in these antioxidants. Garlic contains allison, a compound that can help to alleviate symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
Garlic also contains dialyl disulfide, which is highly effective for body and can help you with a number of diseases including joint pain. The fifth and the last saber food that you should include in your diet is bone broth.
Glucosamine, chondritin and amino acids are well documented to help maintain healthy joints. While calcium is essential for bone density, bone broth contains all of them. The gelatinlike substance that comes from cooking bones mimics collagen that occurs naturally in our joints, tendons and ligaments.
