26 Jan Don’t Let Arthritis Slow You Down!
Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the US affecting 50% of Americans over the age of 65. By 2030, it is estimated the 67 million people will suffer from some form of arthritis. Many lifestyle changes can help lessen pain and stiffness in the joints such as: maintaining a healthy weight, eating an anti-inflammatory diet and staying active. Research is showing that some supplements can be effective at decreasing inflammation as well:
- Ginger and turmeric: The curcumin component in turmeric has been shown to be a very potent anti-inflammatory. Ginger has been shown to inhibit many inflammatory markers such as cytokines and chemokines.
- Glucosamine and chondroitin w/MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane): Anti-inflammatory supplements have been compared to placebo and ibuprofen in clinical studies (1,2) and shown to provide similar relief with fewer side effects and complications..
- Proteolytic enzymes: Inflammation is closely linked to gut health. Anything that can improve gut health will consequently lead to improvements in pain and inflammation. Proteolytic enzymes, specifically papain and bromelain, have been shown to provide improvements in mobility in rheumatoid and osteoarthritic patients.
