Nutrition for Arthritis

Arthritis is the description of over 100 conditions that cause swelling and pain in one or more joints in your body, including the connective tissues around the joint. Avoiding excess eggs, red or processed meat, saturated fats, refined sugar, flour and salt can help the inflammation and pain. Instead choose fruits, vegetables, fish, nuts, whole grains, and beans.

  • Beans – These are full of fibre and phytonutrients, which help lower C-reactive protein (CRP) – an indicator of inflammation found in the blood

  • Fish – This is a good source of inflammation-fighting omega-3 fatty acids

  • Fruits and vegetables – Both are loaded with antioxidants, which act as a natural defense system for the body

  • Nuts – Nuts, along with seeds, have been shown to help improve inflammation

  • Whole grains – These contain fibre, which can help maintain a healthy weight
