Eating strategically can ease pain and minimize future damage
So what exactly is joint pain? Joint pain is the result of swelling in a particular area i.e. The Knee. The cause of the swelling is the body's immune response : meaning that it detects a problem area and responds accordingly to fix damaged tissue or fight off unwanted bacteria/virus.
Now that you understand this, the key is to create an anti-inflammatory environment in the body.
WHAT TO EAT
Omega 3 Fatty Acids - Salmon, Mackeral, Herring and most coldwater fish. A good dose of this is 1000mg (an iphone size piece of fish).
Flaxseed Oil - A tablespoon of this goodness delivers 700mg. Mix it into your food or slurp it down if you're up for it!
Eggs and pastured eggs - Hens lay eggs with more of the healthy fatty acid if they’re fed flaxseeds, fish oil, or algae.
Sulfur - A building block of connective tissue, including cartilage, tendons, and ligaments. Eggs, poultry, fish, legumes, garlic, onions, and leeks.
Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, and brussel sprouts. Experts recommend a daily serving of these sulfur-rich veggies.
Calcium and Vitamin D - Dairy (milk, yogurts, cheeses), egg yolks, fatty fish (mentioned earlier) and finally kale all complement vitamin D and calcium intake.
