Studies Suggest the Right Vitamin C Could Help Reduce Arthritis Risk


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/06/2015 -- Vitamin C is considered to be effective in helping to reduce the risk of inflammatory arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis. However, experts warn there are many things about vitamin C that those suffering from, or prone to, arthritis should know about.

Many health professionals believe that choosing the right vitamin C can be beneficial for reducing arthritis risk. However, they caution that having too much of the vitamin can aggravate other kinds of arthritis. Already, there are many individuals suffering from osteoarthritis who do not consume vitamin C just to prevent accelerated joint damage.

According to the USDA, the recommended dose for vitamin C consumption in women is 75 milligrams per day, and 90 milligrams for men. Vitamin C consumption is highly recommended, but it is recommended that individuals see to it that they are consuming the right amount.

The Duke University in North Carolina conducted an animal study that found high levels of vitamin C triggered a particular protein that was associated with the development of bone spurs. According to experts, this could accelerate joint damage, as well as pain in subjects who were suffering from osteoarthritis.

Further studies have been conducted to validate the effects of vitamin C consumption. In one study conducted in Great Britain, it was found that individuals with low levels of vitamin C were more likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis than those whose diets included vitamin C rich foods.

Experts believe that the key in preventing inflammatory arthritis and maintaining joint health in osteoarthritis patients is getting the right amount of vitamin C. Vitamin C can be found in many food items such as strawberries, red peppers and citrus fruits.

The risk of developing arthritis can be reduced in various ways. According to healthcare professionals, engaging in regular exercise is one of the best ways to reduce arthritis risk. Weight management is extremely important, as obesity or being overweight can significantly increase a person's chance of developing the condition. Having a healthy diet is also one of the most important ways to reduce arthritis risk.

There are also many arthritis sufferers who believe that using curcumin supplements helps to reduce their pain and swelling. Curcumin is an active ingredient of an ancient spice known as turmeric. This ingredient is believed to have a wide variety of health benefits. Experts suggest that individuals who want to use curcumin supplements should choose a product that contains a black pepper extract, which is known to increase nutrient absorption in the body
