If you have inflammation or problems with arthritis be careful with your diet and what you actually consume. This is time for you to find out what should you consume or avoid.

In addition of this we present you the 7 foods that should be consumed and 4 that are not allowed, you can practice this if you want to get rid of this disease of course.
Arthritis usually occurs as a result of chronic inflammatory process and the main cause is the food we consume. There is a food that increases the inflammation and food that reduces and prevents. This inflammation is linked to the immune system. There are two types of arthritis.
  • Osteoarthritis – OA
  • Rheumatoid arthritis – RA
They both have similar symptoms but are different. OA is associated with age and the occurring of RA are ages. In the OA the inflammation is minimal but indeed the change in diet helps in both types.

It is recommended that a balanced diet will give you healthy body weight and will reduce the stress level. Enter calcium, selenium, vitamin B12 and vitamin D as much as you can.
These are 7 types of food that will help you prevent or heal the arthritis.
  1. Fish rich in omega 3 fatty acids. These kind of acids are actually the main prevention of all the inflammatory. All fish contain omega 3 so you should not limit the choice. You can actually consume salmon and sardines the most. Also the fatty acids prevent breast cancer. From plant origin, best source of omega 3 are the flax oil and walnuts.
  2. Cold- pressed olive oil. The perfect results for fighting problems with RA gives the olive oil. Studies show that it inhibits the production of chemicals in the body who are causing the infection. Use it regularly and you will achieve the wanted effect.
  3. Fruits and Vegetables. They are rich in antioxidants so the salads should be part of your daily menu. Most of the antioxidants can be found in broccoli, spinach, sweet potatoes, carrots, tomatoes, melons, papaya and grapes.
  4. Seeds and whole grains. They are recommended in the process of inflammation due to regulating the weight through easy digestion. Eat oatmeal, brown rice, pasta and bread from rye and whole wheat.
  5. Ginger – the ginger effects directly as prevention and treatment against RA. Consume it whenever you like and however you like to be prepared.
  6. Turmeric – This golden spice has the highest anti- inflammatory power and it is a huge antioxidant and antiseptic. Great success words come from all over the world for its positive treatment results.
  7. Vitamin C. Entering vitamin C daily, you reduce the risk of infection and inflammation for minimum 30%. Present in oranges, lemons, mango, strawberries, kiwi and broccoli.
Food you should not eat
  1. Sugar – The sugar is number one enemy for the health. It directly causes the inflammation and it is direct initiator of bad effect and all diseases of the body.
  2. Refined oil – avoid using it. If you had to use it use it in very small amounts but I suggest complete exit for this one.
  3. Red meat, meat products and fat dairy products – All these are equally harmful and they should never be served on your menu if you want complete cure for arthritis.
  4. Salt – avoid salt, especially white refined. If you consider consuming, consume it in minimal quantities.
