Eat Your Way to Healthier Joints

Making some changes to your diet is one of the easiest ways to keep your joints healthy and your body feeling great. Some very common foods can help your body to fight inflammation while also providing nutrients critical to joint health.

Try some of the following foods to keep your joints healthy and pain free:

     1. Wild Caught Salmon

One of the best sources of “good” fats, salmon is widely known for its powerful health properties. Not only does salmon pack a huge omega-3 punch, crucial to reducing inflammation, it also contains an excellent balance of fats to promote optimal whole body health. Pacific Health offers wild-caught salmon from SeaBear, a delicious way to keep joints healthy.

     2. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Clinical research has shown that regularly including extra virgin olive oil in your diet may help to reduce pain and inflammation. Extra virgin olive oil helps to inhibit COX 2 enzymes (which lead to inflammation). Extra virgin is the way to go, as it has the strongest antioxidant properties. By fighting inflammation causing free radicals, antioxidants help to relieve pain.

     3. Almonds

Almonds provide omega-3s, fiber and vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant. In fact, almonds provide more fiber than most nuts, which may help with long term inflammation.  Almonds also contain manganese, which can work with glucosamine and chondroitin to promote joint health. Try the Chukar Cherries’ Nuts over Bings Mix for the double free radical fighting boost of almonds and dried Bing cherries, a powerful antioxidant fruit.      

     4. Avocado

Break out the guacamole! Avocados are a great source of antioxidants containing vitamin E, essential fatty acids and monounsaturated fats. In fact, avocados pack double the antioxidant power of other fruits calorie for calorie.

     5. Pineapple

Pineapples have long been used for medicinal purposes by Native South and Central Americans. Pineapples contain bromelain, an anti-inflammatory enzyme that has been shown to reduce pain and swelling and promote healing. In fact, some studies have shown bromelain to be as effective as many prescription drugs to reduce inflammation.

     6. Turmeric

This spice has long played an important role in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine as a treatment for inflammation. Containing the powerful antioxidant curcumin, turmeric decreases inflammation causing enzymes and battles free radicals.

     7. Ginger

Ginger has a long-held reputation as an anti-inflammatory. One study even  showed that it may help to decrease pain and the need for traditional pain medication for osteoarthritis sufferers.

     8. Joint Health and Fish Oil Supplements

Supplements can help you to provide your body with the complete nutrients that it needs when added to a healthy diet.

Lurosil Advanced is an excellent source of Omega-3s, turmeric, and bromelain, plus antioxidant vitamins A, C and E, glucosamine HCl, and chondroitin sulfate. Try it with Zyflamend, which includes turmeric, ginger and other herbs shown to keep joints healthy.

Be sure to also check out Fish Oil Plus and Wholemega- great sources of Omega-3s made from fish wild-caught in the Pacific Northwest.
