It’s no coincidence that these are foods that help the body to build muscle and 
maintain a healthy weight. Strong muscles help keep joints stable and a healthy 
weight reduces pressure on joints, helping to minimize–or in some cases prevent– 
joint inflammation.

Eat these foods and while you might not completely eliminate joint inflammation, 
you’ll certainly increase your body’s ability to fight joint inflammation and even 
prevent it from occurring in the first place.

In selecting foods from the list, be sure to choose so you get a well-rounded 
variety of healthy, wholesome, unprocessed, inflammation-fighting foods in 
your daily diet. And while I didn’t put it on the list, you should also be sure 
to drink plenty of water every day. This helps flush toxins from your body 
and keeps your joints lubricated.
