Nutritional tips for better joint health

One study showed that people who ate at least two servings of strawberries per week were 14% less likely to suffer from inflammation.

A different study showed that consuming around 16 ounces, or 475ml of tart cherry juice daily may significantly reduce the symptoms of osteoarthritis and inflammation.

How exercise helps

The John Hopkins University in Baltimore conducted a study with 75 people who suffered from arthritis. Participants were assigned to either standard care or eight weeks of yoga (3 times a week). Those taking part in the yoga sessions reported a 20% improvement in pain and physical function.

Swimming is also effective in improving joint pain and stiffness. Dive in for a post-run cool down to keep those aches and pains at bay.

Nothing beats a healthy, balanced diet to provide all the nutrients we need. But when this isn't possible, supplements can help. This article isn't intended to replace medical advice. Please consult your healthcare professional before trying supplements or herbal medicines.
