Did you know that you can cure chronic inflammation in the body simply by changing or boosting certain foods that you eat? According to a study published in the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases, if you are one who has knee joint pain, it may be time to boost your fiber intake. Consistent intake of fiber just may be the cure for that pesky pain in your knee.
In addition to lowering cholesterol, improving digestive function, lowering blood pressure, and supporting cardiac health, fiber lowers markers such as C-reactive protein (CRP) in the blood, that contribute to inflammation in the body. CRP contributes to conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes. Fiber is rich with phytonutrients which are thought to be a main contributor in the battle against inflammation. Phytonutrients are commonly found in fiber-rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
