Put the fire of inflammation out with omega-3 supplements
“Research studies have shown that high-dose omega oils supplements containing EPA, DHA and GLA can help with arthritis pain, specifically by reducing inflammatory chemicals in the body.” —Susan Blum, MD, founder and director of Blum Center for Health and author of two books on arthritis. Not into taking supplements? That’s alight because there are natural remedies for arthritis that actually work.
Grill up a grass-fed steak
“Grass-fed or pastured meat has been shown in research studies to be significantly higher in omega-3 fatty acids, which can reduce inflammation. In addition, grass-fed beef is high in creatine, which can increase muscle mass in people with rheumatoid arthritis, helping to increase mobility.” —Ed Levitan, MD, Five Journeys
Take glucosamine chondroitin to rebuild joints
“Glucosamine and chondroitin have been shown to improve the cartilage surface within the joint and reduce inflammation. Seafood and organ meats are rich food sources or you can get it in supplement form.” —Megan R. Williams Khmelev, MD, osteoarthritis specialist and owner of Elemental Weight Loss Clinic, in San Antonio, Texas. Taking these supplements are great, but these other simple everyday habits can lower your risk of arthritis drastically.
