Avoiding arthiritis (5/5)

List item

Arthritis is a degenerative joint disease that deteriorates the cartilage and bones around the joints and can cause a lot of pain and stiffness for those suffering from it. Switching to a whole food plant based diet has been shown to reduce the symptoms of arthritis, particularly those of osteoarthritis, by increasing the levels of beta carotene (found in carrots), vitamin E (found in almonds) and vitamin C (found in citrus fruits) in the body.

As well as this, a vegan diet is low in arachidonic acids which are known to increase inflammation (something that definitely doesn’t go well with arthritis). As a little side note, guess where we do get those inflaming arachidonic acids from – that’s right, animal products!
