​​​​​​​Rheumatoid Arthritis Diet

Recommended Posts

Rheumatoid arthritis diet

Your doctor or dietitian may recommend an anti-inflammatory diet for you to help with your symptoms. This type of diet includes foods that have lots of omega-3 fatty acids.

Foods high in omega-3 fatty acids include:

fatty fishes, including salmon, tuna, herring, and mackerel
chia seeds
flax seeds
walnuts

Antioxidants, such as vitamins A, C, and E, and selenium, may also help reduce inflammation. Foods high in antioxidants include:

berries, such as blueberries, cranberries, goji berries, and strawberries
dark chocolate
spinach
kidney beans
pecans
artichokes

Eating lots of fiber is also important, because according to some researchers, fiber may help reduce inflammatory responses which can be seen as a decrease in C-reactive protein levels. Choose whole grain foods, fresh vegetables, and fresh fruit. Strawberries may be particularly beneficial.

Foods containing flavonoids can also help to counter inflammation in the body.They include:

soy products, such as tofu and miso
berries
green tea
broccoli
grapes

What you don’t eat is just as important as what you do eat. Make sure to avoid trigger foods. These include processed carbohydrates and saturated or trans fats
