Green Tea

Green Tea

Green Tea can reduce inflammation, risk of heart attacks, and risk of cancer.  It originates in China and is made with leaves from the Camellia sinensis plant.  Try green tea instead of coffee in the afternoons and see if it makes a difference.

Green tea is also purported to help rheumatoid arthritis, reduce cholesterol, and fight infection.  Green tea is rich in the anti-oxidant, epigallocatechin (EGCG).  EGCG inhibits the growth of cancer cells, lowers LDL cholesterol, and inhibits the formation of abnormal blood clots.  All that and it can reduce swelling in your knees too.

So try green tea to help ease the swelling associated with your osteoarthritis of the knee.
