Do you know that your bones and joints remains healthy only when you eat clean healthy nutrition.
Of course, there is no single food cure - all to support joint health. Exercising, eating a balanced diet and generally taking care of yourself play an important role in moving your joints freely. Here are some foods to include in your diet.
Whole grains such as super oatmeal are associated with lower levels of inflammation. Refined grains such as white flour have the opposite effect.
While work-out helps strengthen bones and muscles, it also puts pressure on the joints. Eating for exercise is not only about promoting activity, but also eating for recovery and healing. Instead of grabbing a pop-tart or biscuit with cheese and sausage, grab the oatmeal with fruits and nuts and yogurt.
Other Food Options:- Quinoa, Barley, Wheat bran, Granola and Brown Rice.
Curcuma is a chief in Indian food. It is rich in a chemical called curcumin. One study found that extracts of curcumin work side-by-side with ibuprofen in reducing knee pain and pain. If you are not used to using Curcuma directly, then use curry powder; Curcuma is that which gives characteristic orange color.
Other Food options:- Cinnamon powder has anti-inflammatory properties which is good for health.
Hazelnuts contain many nutrients that combat inflammation, including omega-3 fatty acids. Keep in mind that hazelnuts and other nuts are good for you, but they also contain a lot of calories; So limit yourself to a handful in a day.
