Inflammation is a major component in most joint pain conditions, so it makes sense to eat a good amount of food that reduces inflammation and reduces the consumption of food that contains inflammatory agents. Here are some simple dietary tips that may help reduce joint pain.
Best Foods To Reduce Inflammation
Choose Healthy Oils
Fish, especially fat from fish, fish oil, olive oil, and walnut oil should be a part of your diet. The fat in these types of food, omega 3, 6, and 9 reduces inflammation.
Avoid Food with Trans-Fats
Margarine, snacks, fast food, and junk food like cakes or cookies often contain this type of fat. They may be tasty but also highly inflammatory.
Eat a variety of vegetables and green leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, and collards to take advantage of their anti-inflammatory properties.
Get Regular Exercise
Exercises such as walking, swimming, and mobility exercises, including self-myofascial release (SMR) are known to help reduce inflammation
