Eating A Bowl Of This May Help With Your Knee Pain
While there is no cure for arthritis, there are many treatments available to ease its symptoms. One thing that may help is having a bowl of muesli for breakfast in the morning.
It’s common knowledge that what you eat can impact your arthritis symptoms - certain foods are known to reduce inflammation. Research from Germany suggests that eating a bowl of muesli every morning can make bones stronger and could help prevent certain types of chronic inflammatory arthritis later in life.
The study, which was published in the journal Nature Communications, found that eating a diet rich in fibre can help chronic inflammatory joint diseases, musculosketal conditions and help build stronger bones. Dr Mario Zaiss, the study’s lead researcher, said “Our findings offer a promising approach for developing innovative therapies for inflammatory joint diseases as well as for treating osteoporosis, which is often suffered by women after the menopause."
Researchers said the molecules in gut bacteria, which aid our metabolism, can affect the entire immune system. That could have an effect on inflammatory autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. So eating a healthy, balanced diet that is rich in fibre and gut-friendly, anti-inflammatory options, could positively change the bacteria in the gut. That could then help quell inflammation and positively impact the immune system.
