Stiff joints? Here's what you should and shouldn't eat
Stiff joints can be caused by injury and disease of your joints. But here's the good news: No matter the cause of your stiff joints, you can eat for healthy joints.

That's correct - by eating and avoiding certain foods, you can get your joints back in tip-top condition - no physical therapy or exercise necessary!

While certain foods protect your joints against arthritis, others can worsen joint problems. Here are the foods you should and shouldn't eat if you have stiff joints.

Four foods that improve stiff joints

#1: Low-fat or fat-free milk
A study by researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in the USA found that the more low-fat or fat-free milk women drink, the slower their progression of knee osteoarthritis – a type of arthritis that’s most common in people over age 50.
 
#2: Extra virgin olive oil
Extra virgin olive oil is brimming with a compounds that helps reduce the levels of inflammatory enzymes in your body and, in turn, soothes stiff joints. Experts think that extra virgin olive oil may have the same inflammation-busting properties as NSAIDs!
 
#3: Fatty fish
Fatty fish like mackerel, salmon, tuna and herring are chockfull of omega-3 fatty acids, which help fight aggressive inflammation. According to a body of animal studies, omega-3 fatty acids can help relieve symptoms of osteoarthritis.
 
#4: Wine
A glass of wine a day can keep stiff joints away! According to a UK study, people who drink four to six glasses of wine per week are less likely to get knee osteoarthritis. The researchers attributed this benefit to the high content of antioxidants in wine.

Four foods that worsen stiff joints

#1: Soft drinks
A 2014 Harvard study found that women who drank one sugary soft drink per day were at increased risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis compared with those who didn’t.
 
#2: Baked goods
Baked goods like muffins, pastries, fried foods and chips are loaded with trans fats. It’s a double whammy on your joints – trans fats trigger weight gain as well as inflammation; both of which can hurt your joints.
 
#3: Cheese
The Brigham and Women's Hospital study reported that cheese can speed up the progression of knee osteoarthritis. Researchers said it may be because cheese is loaded with fat.
 
#4: Beer
Beer can take a toll on your joints by boosting your odds of hip or knee osteoarthritis, a UK study found. In fact, the more you drink, the greater your odds of osteoarthritis! One theory is that the dreaded “beer belly” puts extra pressure on already stiff joints.
 
Keep these foods you should and shouldn’t eat if you have stiff joints the next time you hit the grocery store!
