Some Foods Fight Arthritis Pain
Try These Natural Remedies

US MED Gives BackYou probably know that omega-3 fatty acids are good for your heart, but they are also good for reducing arthritis pain. These essential fatty acids are found in foods including coldwater fish, like salmon, tuna and halibut, flaxseeds and walnuts. They decrease inflammation in the body.

Olive oil contains a natural compound called oleocanthal, which blocks the same inflammatory pathways as ibuprofen and aspirin.

Green tea contains a natural antioxidant called EGCG that works to stop the production of certain inflammatory chemicals involved in arthritis.

Citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruit contain vitamin C, one of the nutrients most responsible for the health of collagen. Other C-rich foods are bell peppers, strawberries, pineapple, broccoli, kidney beans, and kiwi.

Cherries, all berries, red and black grapes and plums all contain a powerful antioxidant. It can defuse the dangerous free radicals that irritate body tissues and cause the inflammation that is typical in arthritis.
