Experts names the BEST eating habit crucial for arthritis patients
Eating plenty of green vegetables like asparagus, broccoli, spinach, kale, and Brussels sprouts is a must for arthritis patients as they are rich in phytochemicals and antioxidants that fight inflammation and support joint health.
Additionally, a study published in the International Journal of Preventive Medicine suggested that antioxidants can also help improve disease-fighting abilities essential for rheumatoid arthritis patients. In another study in the American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine, it was stated that dark leafy greens contain oodles of beta-carotene, a pigment that lowers C-reactive protein levels which in excess can cause acute inflammation.
Researchers also recommend a LIFE (Low-Inflammatory Foods Everyday) diet for arthritis patients which includes:
- Bok choy
- Swiss chard
