The importance of mobility not only as we age, but for day to day life cannot be understated. Pain that form moving around affects not only your body, but your mind. You feel less vivacious, motivated, and less equipped to take on life’s adventures and challenges. These are most often associated with older people, but as of recently, younger people are bring plagued with these issues as well.
No longer I say! *cue medieval Game of Thrones voice*
With the foods, recipes, and books below, you can learn how to easy joint pain, rebuild cartilage, and make delicious food recipes that continue your efforts. I will start of sharing 5 general foods, 5 home remedies, and then 4 cookbooks for recipes that enhance joint health and decrease inflammation.
5 helpful Foods:
Unlike any food that I have heard of to date, brown rice has the compound that is closest to hyaluronic acid already in it. This, as we know, is one of the main joint lubricants in the body. By having something so close to the body’s natural joint lubricant in the food you eat, it can be easily modified by the body and be used immediately. Half the battle is already won 😊
Vegan Bone Broth
This food can give you all of the building blocks to help your body produce lots of collagen, cartilage, lubricants, and increase cellular strength dramatically. Also this broth does not increase acidity in the body the way that typical “bone broths” do; this is important because it creates an environment where there is less agitation and inflammation can occur within the joints.
These spices both work differently but achieve the same momentous result: less joint inflammation, pain ,and swelling. Turmeric specifically slows the degradation of bone cartilage through suppressing the inflammatory and metabolic activity of bone cells at joints. Ginger is great at relieving higher levels of pain at a faster rate as well as reducing swelling. These spices can be consumed regularly in teas or in foods. Whatever tickles your fancy 😊
The power in these nuts is from the high Omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids are delivered straight to joints by the body to help in cartilage production, free radical elimination, and inflammation reduction. High manganese and magnesium content supply the body with what it needs to create the natural lubricants necessary for joint mobility such as hyaluronic acid.
Coconut Oil is another one of those magic foods. Coconut Oil is not only great for penetrating cell walls and rejuvenating them from the inside out, but it has been seen in studies to greatly hydrate internal tissues as well. This is important in this instance because its structure is easily integrated into hyaluronic acid and the strengthening of muscles surrounding joints; this can greatly decrease pain and encourage joint health. Also, like the other foods above, it is a scientifically backed anti-inflammatory food that reduces pain and swelling. This can be taken in food most easily, but you can also take a spoonful of this a day also. Just make sure you like coconut flavor. 😊
Gelatin…… yes including Jell-O
Gelatin is one of the only foods that has a similar molecular and chemical structure to that of the body’s cartilage. Because of this it is essential in the diet of those that want to rebuild cartilage in their joints. You can take unflavored gelatin in one of the recipes in the next section, or your can make your own flavored gelatin at home with natural flavors. Its important to try with unflavored gelatin rather than “Jell-O” because of all of the detrimental additives in that brand’s products.
