4 Super-Foods That Help With Arthritis Pain

It’s well understood that your diet plays a crucial role in your arthritis pain. While the same foods that give you a trim waist and clear arteries will likely relieve your pain, a few foods stand head and shoulders above the rest.

Add these 4 pain-fighting super-foods to your diet and you may even feel a difference within a few minutes after your last bite.

Blueberries
Blueberries are overflowing with nutrients that ‘K-O’ arthritis pain. Yummy blueberries are especially rich in crucial compounds called antioxidants. Antioxidants are your body’s bodyguards that protect your joints from damage. If you don’t get enough antioxidant support, expect epic arthritis flare-ups to take hold.

In fact, a USDA-commissioned study found that wild blueberries have more antioxidants than any other food on planet Earth! Research at the University of Prince Edward Island recently found that eating blueberries significantly reduced arthritis pain.

Green Tea
If you have arthritis, there’s an acronym that should be part of your vocabulary: EGCG. EGCG is the insanely beneficial compound found only in green tea that fights everything from cancer to cavities.

Used for centuries as a pain reliever in China, green tea is earning the notice of University researchers in the West. A study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science found that EGCG drops inflammation and relieves pain in people with severe arthritis.

Broccoli
If you’re like most people, your mother made you down this bitter green cruciferous veggie as a kid. If you followed her advice into adulthood, you may not have arthritis today. Scientists at the University of East Anglia recently figured out why broccoli helps people with osteoarthritis –by far, the most common arthritis type.

They found that broccoli (and only broccoli) contains a funny sounding nutrient called sulforaphane. Sulforaphane presses the “OFF” button on enzymes that destroy vulnerable joints and cartilage.

Kidney Beans
In terms of arthritis pain, kidney beans have a lot going for them. First, it’s got almost as much antioxidant content per ounce as blueberries. Also, they’re one of the few carbohydrate sources known as “slow carbs.” Slow carbs are digested and absorbed slowly – unlike white bread, potatoes, and soda. Studies show that replacing rapidly digesting carbs with slow carbs relieves arthritis pain.

Last (but not least); kidney beans are bursting with soluble fiber. Soluble fiber fights appetite and accelerates the weight loss results you get from dieting.

  6. Great article. I eat these foods regularly, and have, for years. Ever since i found I was diabetic, and had extremely high inflammation in all places in my body. I have something like rumatoid arthritis, though, and have a lot of severe bone & joint pain. It was worse, and unendurable, before I started eating this way, and taking extra Vitamin D, regularly. My favorite food is broccoli salad, which I defat and eat often. I would like more info on inflmmation, too.

  7. I was told by my cousin back home that roasted Coriander tea is an excellent choice for diarrhea. Roast the coriander gently as soon as it becomes brown not black put aside to cool.Need to crush & make it like tea,when it cool down drink it either by itself or with one teaspoon of honey. I have tried it,need to sip it during the day.

  8. Nice easy to read article BUT don't forget the black turtle beans as these clear toxins from the liver.

  9. thanks for d information..

  10. It is goood for Arthritis, but you have to inform people on portion serve for all this foods and again bear in mind that Green Tea is not good for a pregnant/lactating mother.

  11. Thanks much

    Taking these antioxidents for other reasons except Broccoli. Have Fibromyalgea and spinal stenosis extreme pain…..worsened with any/all stress. Any help for me in the food department?????? Taking pain meds which help a bit but they need all the help they can get….

  12. Sounds like a very good start. Please expand to other areas…Stress would be good…………………

  13. Thanks……(:-P)……awaiting next episode….

  14. Good Reading for Arthritis suffers. I like to start a day with2 cups of organic green tea, gulten free oats with raw milk and blueberries, maybe an apple.Don't forget your whole food supplments from Standerd Process.

  15. Excuse me Sue , what are Black Turtle Beans ? Never heard of them.

  16. It is very interesting and education! Thank you so much for sharing this information to everyone. Would appreciate to learn more from this site. Keep up the good work!!!!!

  17. To Marian

    Milk is useless unless it is raw or pasteurized at low heat because otherwise the enzymes are destroyed. As far as diarrhea is concerned, I sometimes have problems since I take quite a few supplements in the morning. One just has to avoid taking the wrong ones at the same time.

  18. thanks for the tips they really helped cheers william.

  19. thanks for this article, i'll try all this 4 super foods.

  20. Helga So-Hartmann

    Thanks for this information. Some of these foods I am eating, but obviously not frequent enough!

  21. What excellent information and good to read all the interesting comments as well. Green Tea is brilliant and I have found a great Green Tea which is concentrated in to a bottle with a stopper. Just one drop is equivalent to 20 green Tea bags and you can put a drop in hot water or even in other teas with milk!
    Superfoods are great and I also have Chia Seeds (also seen in yesterday’s UK Independent newspaper) in my daily breakfast fruit juice – full of omega 3 and other vital nutrients and give an energy boost as well.
    Good health to you all.

  22. David Romero I am sending a link

    http://www.google.co.uk/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=black+turtle+beans&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&redir_esc=&ei=rAVyT4yxOJDb8QPmnrkv

    They are tiny round black and shiny beans, which look attractive in a glass jar on the kitchen work top, bit bigger than lentils. Maybe called Turtle as they have a small 'eye', not sure but there's such a lot on this link about their amazing qualities. Let me know if I haven't copied the link properly for you. Good luck.

  23. How much of these foods and tea would one need to eat and drink on a daily basis please for them to help?

  24. Superb and very enlightening. Shows how inexpensive and potent and simple food can heal. I am going to try the food remedies. Thanks.

  25. What can a person eat to stop diarrhea? I take lots of meds and that could be the cause. Or maybe it’s the milk that I drink a lot of.
    I appreciate your blogs on FMS and arthritis.
    Thank you.

  26. If kidney beans are ‘slow carbs’, and unlike potatoes, not quickly digested,
    does that mean that kidney beans are low on the glycemic index and slow to add to the body’s blood sugar index?

    However, I find that I have difficulty in digesting kidney beans — or most beans: are lentils a suitable substitute (well … an ‘adequate’ substitute)?

  27. I should've said the black turtle beans help clear toxins from 'kidneys'

  28. Very interesting informations! Food that helps and heals!!

  29. Very good information I will try.

  30. Thanks for the great article. The 4 foods, you mentioned that will help arthritis is easily available and doesn’t cost one an arm and a leg. I’m 71 years old and don’t have the problem yet but will definitely keep that in my suggestion and tip file. For now, I will just spread the word around to people who are suffering arthritis.
