One out of six Americans have some form of arthritis. But studies show that arthritis does not have to be an inevitable part of the aging process.
Here is what's recommended: maintain ideal weight, eat a diet rich in antioxidants including C, A and E, get some sun for D; Eat lots of enzyme-rich foods containing bromelain, like papaya and pineapples; take supplements such as glucosamine and chondroitin that support joint and cartilage health, and use the herbs ginger; turmeric and cinnamon; all of which can reduce inflammation and increase circulation.
Also sometimes it pays to reduce nightshade family foods such as tomatoes, potatoes, eggplants, and bell peppers.
