      What foods are good for arthritis?

      Arthritis in simple terms can be defined as a class of diseases which cause pain, swelling and stiffness in the joints. This may affect anyone irrespective of age, gender and ethnic background. There are many different types of arthritis ranging from osteoarthritis to rheumatoid arthritis. Here’s a look at foods that help.

      Fatty fish

      Fatty fish have always been a hot favourite on every healthy food list. Salmon, mackerel, trout and sardines fall into this category and are high in Omega-3 fatty acids. When 17 studies were analysed, the findings were that consuming omega-3 fatty acid supplements decreased arthritis symptoms such as the intensity of joint pain intensity, morning stiffness and also brought down the number of painful joints in those with rheumatoid arthritis.

      Oils that help

      Extra virgin olive oil is another favourite health food; this is filled with heart-healthy fats and also oleocanthal whose properties are similar to non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs. Walnut oil is also great for arthritis, in fact it has 10 times more omega-3s that olive oil has!

      Berries & cherries

      When you look at the research that has been done, it reveals that the anthocyanins in cherries have an anti-inflammatory effect on the body. Besides this, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries are also rich in anthocyanins.

      Green tea

      This is filled with polyphenols which are antioxidants that can reduce inflammation and slow cartilage destruction.


      Choose low-fat dairy variants of products such as milk, yogurt and cheese. These are abundant in calcium and vitamin D which are important to enhance bone strength. In case, you are allergic to dairy, go for calcium and vitamin D-rich foods such as leafy green vegetables.


      Broccoli is a great food for health and is rich in Vitamins C and K and also contains calcium. It also has a compound known as sulforaphane and this may prevent or slow down the progression of osteoarthritis (OA).
