 1)  Foods High in Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 essential fatty acids have been getting a lot of attention in the last few years and that’s because they do amazing things for your body.

In terms of arthritis symptoms, omega-3s actually reduce the body’s production of C-reactive protein (CRP) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) which are two inflammatory proteins. (3)

You need at least one gram of omega-3s per day. You can get this through eating fish, walnuts, flaxseed, soy and pumpkin seeds.

Rheumatoid arthritis is chronic and symmetrical inflammation of the joints – that is, redness, warmth, swelling and pain on both the left and right sides.

Symptoms may develop quickly or gradually increase over many years.

There is no cure for rheumatoid arthritis, and treatment usually focuses on reducing inflammation and treating the damaged joints.

However, more and more people are discovering that simple lifestyle and food choices can make the world of difference in terms of the severity of their symptoms and overall mobility.
