33 Foods to Improve Joint Pain

Do you suffer from back pain, knee pain, sore joints or perhaps you have arthritis? When anything goes wrong with the workings of our muscles, bones, joints and the connecting tissue, pain is the first indication. It can be excruciating and debilitating and the first thing we reach for is the painkillers.

Foods high in sugar and saturated fat can encourage inflammation. They cause over activity in the immune system, which can lead to joint pain and fatigue. Eating a healthy diet can help to alleviate some symptoms and improve your quality of life.
