2. Tart Cherry Juice
Usually, juice is discouraged for people suffering from joint pain. It contains a lot of sugar, without containing any of the fibre that fruit normally has to slow down the release of sugar into your bloodstream.
As such the sugar, a substance which has been shown to be inflammatory, is sent into your bloodstream without any regulation. However, an exception to this rule can be seen in the form of tart cherry juice. It still contains sugar, obviously, but it has also been shown in studies that it reduces inflammation and swelling. As such, it’s great for relieving the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
3. Red Wine
We have some great news for wine lovers, because red wine is actually a good drink to get rid of joint pain. Of course, alcohol is somewhat of a natural painkiller, but not a very healthy one and as such it’s not advised to use it in that way.
However, red wine contains a substance called resveratrol, which has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Drinking one to two glasses of red wine a day can reduce the risk of developing joint diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. If you’re looking for an alcohol-free way to enjoy these benefits, red grapes and red grape juice contain resveratrol, too.
