Superfoods To Fight Arthritis

Every Type of Arthritis demands certain superfoods

Fighting Arthritis with SuperfoodsPeople in the western world suffer from all kinds of illnesses and many of them are related to what we eat! One of the most spread disease is arthritis.The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis, or the deterioration of cartilage surrounding the bones. This form causes the bones to rub against each other, resulting in pain, inflammation and difficulties in moving the respective limbs. The second form of arthritis is rheumatoid arthritis. This kind is an autoimmune disease where the joint linings become inflamed due to dysfunction of the immune system. It can become very serious and tends to effect a higher percentage in women than in men.

Arthritis is a condition that affects nearly 70 million people around the globe. The major complaint by people who suffer from arthritis is joint pain. Pain is the most common constant and may be localized to the joint(s) affected. Treatment can vary widely, based on the severity of the arthritis and on what type of arthritis it is, and on the location of the body. While individual attention from your physician is sure necessary to best manage your unique symptoms, certain Superfoods have been discovered lately that can offer a tremendous relief for many people suffering from both types of arthritis.

Although the two forms of arthritis are different in many ways, they both are joint conditions, which can be very complex. Both involve various systems of the body and are often unpredictable in severity.  Certain superfoods and supplements can be extremly beneficial to help managing arthritis. The superfoods listed below are known to have various health benefits.

The Best Foods to Fight Arthritis!

Many foods have anti-inflammatory properties that can help fight rheumatoid arthritis. Chief among them are omega-3 fatty acids, which are found in

  • Walnuts
  • Flax Seeds
  • Fish and Fish Oil

The fatty acids, EPA and DHA, are converted by the body into substances that fight inflammation. Studies show that they reduce joint stiffness, swelling and tenderness. The best food choices are fatty fish like

  • Wild Salmon
  • Mackerel
  • Blue Fin Tuna

Omega-3 fats have recently been found to be present in a variety of food products, such as

  • Organic Eggs.

Antioxidants are another category of substances that fight inflammation. They are plant chemicals found in fruits, vegetables and other natural foods.

  • Green Tea

in particular, is loaded with powerful antioxidants called polyphenols, which have been shown to reduce inflammation. Green tea also contains healing substances, like the antioxidant EGCG, fluoride, catechins and tannins. Studies show that drinking four cups a day can prevent the onset of osteoarthritis, and reduce the severity if you already have it.

As it turns out, one of the fieriest foods you can eat actually has anti-inflammatory properties.

  • Chilly Peppers

Chilly contains capsaicin which inhibits inflammation. One study showed that capsaicin cream applied topically reduced pain in sufferers of osteoarthritis. Careful though, you might want to discuss this treatment with your doctor first, and feel free to add chillies to your meals too. I always say, "The hotter, the greater the benefits."

Pain Saving Food Supplements

It is important for everyone to get the recommended daily dose of vitamins and minerals, but arthritis sufferers could see added benefits. Vitamin C is known to prevent the breakdown of cartilage, which is often effected by arthritis. When it comes to vitamins and minerals, however, more is not always better. Tell your doctor what supplements you are taking and don't go over the recommendations. Too much vitamin C was shown to exacerbate arthritis of the knee.

Vitamin D is important for bone and joint health. It also may help build collagen, one of the building blocks of joints. You can get this vitamin by spending 10 to 15 minutes in the sun for at least two or three days of the week, this will store enough vitamin D in your body to be protected.

Vitamin E also acts as an antioxidant to fight inflammation. Nuts and seeds and avocados are rich in vitamin E. If you combine these foods with omega-3 rich fish, you may gain extra benefits. Studies show that consuming these two nutrients together may boost their ability to fight inflammation and therefore reduce the pain dramatically.

If you suffer from any form of arthritis, changing your diet immediately is in any case a smart move. Fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean plant based proteins are very important for you!. These foods will provide you with a variety of antioxidants that can promote good health in all aspects. Then add on the superfoods and food supplements and you have the perfect overall diet for fighting off arthritis.

Prevention of Artritis

Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis can both not be completely prevented but we can reduce the risks of becoming an arthritis victim by becoming physically more active exercise regularly and participating in physical therapies. Weight loss is also essential for obese people suffering from arthritis and as we've been discussing earlier, eating healthy foods and superfoods. Anybody who feels chronically pain in certain joints should see a physician and seek early diagnosis because the earlier the treatment is started, the better is the prognosis of healing

Two Servings of Fruit and Five Servings of Vegetables

What are antioxidants?

An antioxidant is either: 1) a chemical compound or substance that inhibits oxidation. Or 2) a (natural) substance, such as Vitamin E, Vitamin C, or beta carotene, thought to protect body cells from the damaging effects of oxidation.

Antioxidants can be found naturally occurring in whole foods where they are usually found in groupings; or they are synthetically manufactured and sold as supplements, usually featuring only one single antioxidant rather than several.

What Are Free Radicals? Do We Need Antioxidants?

Oxidation occurs when free radicals (highly reactive, high-energy particles) ricochet wildly throughout the body and damage cells. Free radicals can be produced within the body by natural biological processes or introduced from outside via tobacco smoke, toxins, pollutants and sub-optimal eating habits. Free radicals are believed to accelerate the progression of cancer, cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue, and age-related diseases. Antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables help neutralize free radicals in the body.

It is generally recommended that people eat 7 servings of fruit and vegetables a day: 2 servings of fruit and 5 serves of vegetables. Most people do not eat the recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables each day. Additionally, most fruits and vegetables grown industrially do not contain the same nutritional benefits that are available in organically grown whole foods and also contain more toxins (free radical sources) for the body to combat.

Why Are Antioxidants Found in Plants?

Photosynthesis is the process whereby plants convert light energy from the sun into stored physical energy (nutrition). Photosynthesis exposes plants to a massive number of free radicals. Plants produce antioxidants to protect themselves from damage by these free radicals. Antioxidant plant pigments, primarily carotenoids and polyphenols that are responsible for the bright

colors of many orange, red, blue and purple fruits, berries and algae, provide most of this protection. Research has shown that human ingestion of these plant-based antioxidants result in similar protection for humans. Research also shows that antioxidants work synergistically (where the combined effect is greater than the sum of the individual effects) and are far more effective when a spectrum of antioxidants are ingested, rather that individual isolated compounds. For example, the herb, thyme, contains over 20 separate antioxidants alone.

Additionally, when foods are grown organically, without the use of synthetic pesticides and herbicides, the plant must get stronger (via struggle) – thus imparting to itself more nutrition – in order to survive. While foods grown industrially with the liberal use of synthetic herbicides and pesticides, rely on the chemicals to protect them, and therefore do not contain the same available nutrition as organically grown foods by as much as 60% less.

What Are ORAC Units? How Many Do We Need?

ORAC, short for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, is a standardized measurement of the total antioxidant power of a substance which is its ability to neutralize oxygen free radicals. The more free radicals a substance can absorb, the higher it's ORAC score. Nutritionists recommend that we consume around 5000 ORAC units per day to significantly impact antioxidant activity in the body and reduce free radical damage. To give you perspective, one half cup serving of fruits or vegetables provides approximately 500 ORAC units. If you're not eating at least 10 servings of fruits and vegetables a day (preferably organically grown), you're not getting the recommended amount of ORAC units to neutralize the damage caused by free radicals in your body every day. Considering the amounts and exposures to the many and varied sources of toxins in today's world, a better guesstimate of necessary ORAC units necessary would be 7000 ORAC per day.

Whole Foods vs Supplements

If you supplement with single-dose antioxidants, or a combination of a few isolated antioxidant nutrients, you are probably not be getting the benefits you need. While isolated nutrients may have powerful antioxidant benefits in vitro (test tube,) they have significantly less benefits in vivo (body). Whereas foods high in antioxidants have proven benefits in both humans and in vitro, it is known that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can help prevent cancers, coronary heart disease and strokes. Synthetic antioxidants may actually increase cancer risk. In fact, every large clinical trial that has used isolated antioxidant nutrients has failed to show benefit for cancer and cardiovascular disease. Most isolated antioxidant nutrients are chemically, and structurally, different to those found in real foods; and do not have the desired effect in the human body. Research has found that whole tomato powder but not lycopene, a carotenoid found in tomatoes, inhibited prostate carcinogenesis in rats, which demonstrates the superior functionality and efficacy of whole-food nutrition compared with high dose, isolated nutrient, supplementation.

What is a Superfood?

A superfood is a type of food that is believed to have more significant health benefits than any other type of food due to their specific phytonutrient content. For instance, blueberries are considered a superfood because they contain significant amounts of antioxidants, phytoflavinoids, vitamin C, and potassium,which are believed to provide important health benefits.

How to Get Your Daily Requirements of 5000-7000 ORAC Units

You can eat the recommended 2-3 servings of fruits and 5-7 servings of vegetables daily, choosing high quality organically grown fruits and vegetables.

You can choose a blend of certified organic whole superfoods, providing a wide spectrum of nutritional and antioxidant benefits and preferably in powder form. For example a blend such as: certified organic raw unrefined cacao powder, dried coffee fruit extract, certified organic freeze-dried pomegranate powder ;certified organic freeze-dried goji berry powder, certified organic freeze-dried acai berry powder, certified organic whole dried dunaliella salina marine microalgae, certified organic freeze-dried blueberry powder, certified organic freeze-dried raspberry powder, certified organic freeze-dried strawberry powder, certified organic freeze-dried olive juice extract. A blend such as this provides all the nutrition and antioxidant benefits of each whole food together with the benefits of all of the whole foods together. One serving of such a blend would provide the daily recommended ORAC requirements.

What Form of Blended Superfood Should I Consume?

Hands down you should look for a powdered form where the superfoods contained within have been freeze dried, thus putting the nutrition and antioxidants in suspended animation, undamaged. Adding the powder to your own liquid (water, juice, soy milk, etc.) makes a quick and easy fortifying drink.

You need to pay attention to how the superfood was processed (freeze dried) and to the quality of the superfoods contained in the powder (organic).

A helpful feature would be individual serving packets rather than the large jar for ease of portability.

Organic Superfood

“Superfood” is a term coined to define foods rich in phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are certain organic constituents of plants. Nutritionists agree that these phytonutrients have health-promoting benefits. Fruits and vegetables, along with nuts, certain teas like green tea, grains, and legumes are rich sources of phytonutrients. Phytonutrients consist of carotenoids, phytosterols, isoflavones (including genistein and daidzen), coumarins, indoles, lignans, flavonoids and organosulfurs. Phytonutrients are commonly associated with the color of foods. There is a variety of colors in every day foods that we eat. Such colors like vibrant green, bright juicy red, white, tempting yellow-orange and blue-purple not only add color to our plate, but add a variety of nutrients as well. Because of this dieticians recommend the rainbow diet-a variety of colored foods every day.Evidence that eating a variety of fruits and vegetables protects human health is accumulating from large population studies, human feeding studies, and cell culture studies. As research expands, more conclusive results are awaited. “For now”, the USDA Agriculture Research Center states, “it appears that an effective strategy for reducing risk of cancer and heart disease is to increase consumption of phytonutrient-rich foods including fruits, vegetables, grains and teas.”Foods rich in phytonutrients are:

  • All the brightly colored foods such as tomatoes, squashes, carrots-any food which is yellow and orange, green or red.
  • Fruits which include citrus fruits and berries
  • Flaxseeds
  • Whole grains and legumes
  • Garlic and leeks
  • Green teas
  • Members of the cabbage family known as cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli or romaine lettuce
  • Dark leafy greens such as spinach
  • Soybeans

The National Cancer Institute recommends eating at least 5 – 9 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. On average, Americans consume 3.3 servings of vegetables a day. Dark green vegetables and deep yellow vegetables each represent only 0.2 daily servings. About 48% of Americans consume less than one serving of fruit a day. Fruits and vegetables retain more nutrients when they are organic. The word “organic” signifies that these foods are totally naturally. No pesticides, or artificial fertilizers are used to grow organic foods. There is no genetic modification. Foods claiming to be organic must be free of artificial food additives, and are often processed with fewer artificial methods, materials and conditions. Organic food production is legally regulated.

Organic Superfoods
Organic Superfoods contain a combination of superfoods as natural, organic ingredients in a synergistic ratio. You get a good dose of phytonutrients in one single serving! It is important to read the label carefully to make sure you are buying a product made with organic ingredients as these have the highest nutritive value and are more easily digested by the body. Organic superfoods are not meant to be a replacement for food. But not all of us can consistently eat the required fruit and vegetables we need each day. Superfoods can augment your daily diet to make sure you are getting phytonutrient power for optimum health protection.
