Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/25/2014 -- Massive amounts of snow and sub-zero temperatures have made the 2013-2014 winter especially difficult for those suffering from arthritis and chronic joint pain. As part of the ongoing education program initiated by VitaBreeze, company spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan, named the top five most beneficial foods for those suffering from pain.
“Food is only part of a pain management plan,” said O’Sullivan. “Rest and regular check-ups with a physician are essential. Your doctor can prescribe an exercise plan to help maintain flexibility and range of motion.”
The foods recommended by VitaBreeze contain vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids and natural substances that help the body’s own mechanisms in healing, fighting pain and reducing inflammation.
1. Berries contain Vitamin C, an essential nutrient that the body can’t store. Best berry choices include blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and boysenberries.
2. Ginger is a centuries old favorite in traditional Asian medicine. The tasty spice is well-known for its anti-inflammatory properties, the leading cause of joint pain.
3. Nuts are rich in Vitamin E and are used to relieve the pain of osteoarthritis, gout and rheumatoid arthritis. Almonds, cashews, hazelnuts and walnuts are all good choices for joint health and studies indicate nuts facilitate calcium absorption.
4. Oily fish, such as kippers, mackerel, salmon and trout, contain omega-3 fatty acids that aid in relieving joint swelling and inflammation that’s common in arthritis and other diseases.
5. Whole grains and lean meats are both rich in Vitamin B and conducive to relieving inflammation and swelling.
Those who want an extra helping hand, or who aren’t too keen on changing their diet, may want to consider a dietary supplement as well. VitaBreeze offers a Glucosamine, Chondroitin, MSM & Turmeric Supplement that contains a triple dose of the key ingredients for maximum performance in reducing swelling, inflammation and joint pain.
