Joint Health and Nutrition
Your entire body requires a variety of nutrients and vitamins to function properly and stay healthy, and one type of body part can particularly benefit from good nutrition: your joints. Joint health and nutrition are connected just as much as nutrition and digestive health, muscular health, and the health of many other systems in the body.
In order to ensure optimum joint health, as well as general nutrition, you should maintain a balanced diet that includes vitamins A, C, E, selenium, and plenty of omega-3 fatty acids. There are a number of foods that contain high levels of these nutrients in varying amounts, including:
- Red peppers
- Peanut butter
- Whole grains
- Many others
As with any change in diet or supplement addition, it is important to first consult with your physician.
