Anti-inflammatory ingredients

Inflammation, swelling and stiffness are the main symptoms of most autoimmune diseases, and that includes rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis too. But including these herbs and spices in your daily diet can help you beat the pain:

Hot Chili Peppers

Hot chili peppers are a natural source of capsaicin, which works as a natural pain reliever and numbs your body’s response to pain. It also fights pain at the source by reducing inflammation.

Black Pepper

Black pepper contains piperin, which has been demonstrated to reduce arthritis pain. Adding a sprinkle of black pepper to your next meal could help you overcome arthritis pain.

Coriander Seeds

Thought pungent in taste and smell, coriander seeds can help reduce joint pain. Usually used as ground seeds in food or herbal tea, coriander seeds can minimize the swelling caused by joint disorders.

Turmeric

One of the most trusted pain remedies in the world, turmeric has many anti-inflammatory properties that make it a natural choice for swelling and arthritis pain. Some people choose to supplement their diet with turmeric, while others start and end their days with turmeric tea.

Boswellia

Boswellia is considered to be the best natural remedy for back pain. It is especially effective at reducing inflammation caused by rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis.

Ginger

Ginger has been used since ancient times to reduce inflammation and relieve the pain caused by aching joints. Ginger root can be chewed, put in food, or made into tea for best results.

Cinnamon

Cinnamon works the same way as many other herbs on this list. It numbs the body’s response to pain while minimizing swelling.

Other supplements for arthritis:

Dietary supplements are often prescribed for fighting inflammation, and the following supplements are usually found in most pain medication:

Glucosamine

If you have chronic joint pain, glucosamine may be one of the most important supplements you can take. This compound is found naturally in your body, in connective tissue. Supplementing your diet with glucosamine can minimize arthritis pain, which is why this compound is included in many arthritis pain relief blends for both animals and humans. Check with your doctor for glucosamine supplements.

Type II Collagen

Collagen can help reduce arthritis pain. Type II collagen creates half of the protein in cartilage and is the main chemical and articular cartilage. Do check with your doctor.

CMO (Cetyl myristoleate)

CMO is a fatty acid that has anti-inflammatory properties. Scientists believe that regular supplementation can ease joint swelling and minimize pain. It also functions as a lubricant for your joints and muscles. But do not take these supplements without consulting your doctor.
