Subject: 6 Foods to Reduce Inflammation Caused by Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis is a disease in which the immune system attacks the joints, causing painful inflammation. There are several foods one can eat on a regular basis that can reduce inflammation. These foods make up what is typically called the Mediterranean-style diet. The foods are 3-4 ounces of fish a week (or doctor recommended fish oil supplements), 5 or more servings of colorful fruits and vegetables a day, 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil a day, 2 or more cups of beans a week, a handful of nuts and seeds a day, and 5 or more cups of green tea a day.
- Fish can fight infkammation due to its omega 3 fatty acid content
- Bright colored veggies like cabbage and kale contain vitamin C and K, known to fight inflammation
- Beans contain phytonutrients known to lower certain inflammatory compounds, such as CRP
