Diet and Nutrition of Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids like fish, walnuts and soybeans should be consumed in greater quantity. Omega-3s are natural anti-inflammatory agents and keep the body's inflammatory chemicals in check.
  • Antioxidants like flavinoids and carotenoids also help to fight inflammation. Go for naturally coloured fruits and vegetables rich in these antioxidants like carrots, berries, melons and peppers.
  • Olive oil is like a natural NSAID (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug) which helps to reduce various inflammatory chemicals and controls the pain.
