Ease Your Joints Juice

By: Stacy Kennedy, MPH, RD, CSO, LDN; Reboot Nutritionist

Joint pain and inflammation are common ailments that can impact everyday life.  Aches and pains, limited mobility, not getting to enjoy running around with your kids or participating in sports with friends or just getting out of bed in the morning can really hinder day to day experiences.

Certain fruits, vegetables and other plant foods like spices and seasonings contain natural phytonutrient compounds with anti-inflammatory actions, like Bromelain in pineapple.  Cherry juice has been shown to help reduce joint pain and inflammation and what better what to get cherry juice than to juice it yourself!  Turmeric is a root that can also be consumed as a dried spice.  Turmeric is rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds like curcumin.

Try these other food fixes for common ailments.
