Alleviate Arthritis Pains with nutrition and Super foods

Arthritis is not a single disease, but includes many disorders that involve joints (osteoarthritis and rheumatoid are the most common). Osteoarthritis can wear down the knees and rheumatoid arthritis can twist and deform the fingers.

Many people with these two conditions don’t realize how much nutrition can improve the way they feel.  Sadly, you don’t hear much about the healing power of nutrition and food.

Here are five super foods that might help alleviate your arthritis pain better than you ever thought possible:

  1. Cherries

Cherries and berries aren’t just sweet treats but they’re loaded with natural pain-relievers and joint-healing substances.  They are Nature’s richest sources of anthocyanins (a group of antioxidants called flavonoids) that possess exceptional anti-inflammatory properties.   This is why blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, and cherries top the list of anti-arthritis fruits.


  1. Fish

Certain varieties of fish; including wild salmon, scallops, sardines, and anchovies; contains natural compounds that stops inflammation, relieve pain, and actually encourage your joints to produce new cartilage. So if you need pain relief, look no further than the fish counter in your local supermarket. 


  1. Flaxseeds

You can add flaxseeds to your shopping list and new list of arthritis healing foods.  They may be tiny, but their arthritis-fighting properties are impressive thanks to their rich supply of alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), one of the omega-3 fatty acids that make cold-water fish such a powerful joint protector.  Flaxseed is the very best plant source of healing omega-3s.  Did you know that two tablespoons of ground flaxseed (also called flax meal) provides you with 140% of the daily recommendation for omega-3s?  Impressive.


  1. Yogurt

Yogurt’s been around for thousands of years, but we are just beginning to understand its remarkable healing properties.  Yogurt is a potent inflammation-fighter with well-documented curative effects for arthritis finger pain and stiffness. Yogurt’s beneficial bacteria not only reduce inflammation, they also strengthen the entire immune system.  They even improve your body’s efficiency at absorbing essential nutrients, particularly calcium.

Brazilian Nuts
Nibbling a brazil nut or two every day is also great for your arthritis.  Did you know that this chunky nut contains more of the trace mineral selenium than any other food.  Selenium is especially important for people with arthritis because low levels of this potent antioxidant actually invite more damage to our joints.  Eating selenium-rich foods also helps limit free radical damage, while helping to relieve arthritis symptoms.

Flexadrin GOLD

Flexadrin GOLD™ is safe for diabetics and patients with seafood allergies.


“ In 2004 I started using Flexadrin’s cream and tablets. I had x-rays taken to see if there was any improvement. More x-rays in 2006 showed improvement. This year in June 2008 x-rays proved that both knees are free from pain. ”
