There are two most main types of arthritis, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid. Both can be very painful and result in swelling and discomfort.
The good news is that diet can help.
By eating a healthy diet and maintaining a healthy weight some symptoms of arthritis can be alleviated, focusing on an anti-inflammatory diet can be even more successful.
An anti-inflammatory diet cuts down or eliminates foods suspected of causing oxidative stress (caused by an excess of free radicals) and encourages the consumption of foods rich in antioxidants.
Superfoods that are high in antioxidants include:
Beetroot – a great source of fibre, potassium, folate and antioxidants, they contain 1.7 mmol antioxidants per 3.5 ounces serving
Wheatgrass - wheatgrass is low in calories but high in nutrients, including antioxidants such as vitamin C, and vitamin E. Wheatgrass has been found to exhibit antioxidant activity as it inhibits DNA oxidative damage and suppresses superoxide radicals due to the presence of redox enzymes.
Goji berries – these tiny red berries pack a powerful antioxidant punch with 4.3 mmol antioxidants per 3.5 ounces serving
Walnuts – walnuts provide healthy fats, fibre, vitamins and minerals — containing 21.9 mmol of antioxidants per 3.5 ounces serving
