Knee Osteoarthritis: Foods That Reduce Swelling – Garlic

March 18, 2011
Garlic

Garlic

Garlic not only adds flavor to food, but it also reduces inflammation, and can reduce the risk of a person developing arthritis. A recent study at the University of Anglia reported a correlation between eating garlic and the chances of developing arthritis.  Garlic contains diallyl disulphide which can slow down cartilage damaging enzymes.  Though more research on the subject needs to be conducted garlic won’t hurt and it tastes good!  Would you rather have bad breath from eating garlic or suffer from ulcers and gastro-intestinal bleeding from taking non-steroidal anti inflammatory medication?  Your choice.

Only you can make your knee osteoarthritis feel better.
