Ease Arthritis and Joint Pain: Top 5 herbs and spices for relief

Arthritis affects over 3.9 million Australians, which is 1 in every 6! The most common symptoms of arthritis include joint pain, stiffness, swelling, redness and decreased range of motion. It’s one of the chronic diseases that can be very painful and has a huge impact to your mobility.  

Many people are using herbal remedies to help manage their joint pain. Research has shown consuming certain herbs and spices as part of your anti-inflammatory diet can help reduce inflammation and ease arthritis symptoms.

Top 5 herbs and spices that can help ease arthritis and joint pain.

1. Turmeric

When speaking of the herbs for arthritis, the very first one definitely is Curcumin. Curcumin is the main ingredient in turmeric that has potent anti-inflammatory properties. It has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda for a variety of health conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis (RA), osteoarthritis (OA) and other arthritis conditions. Furthermore, the benefits of turmeric to help ease and minimize the discomfort from arthritis have been proven by many recent studies (1, 2, 3)!

The compound diallyl disulfide in garlic can effectively decrease the effects of pro-inflammatory cytokines, therefore helping fight inflammation. In addition, research have shown that garlic has anti-arthritic activity, preventing and reducing inflammation. Another study reported garlic can significantly lower pain intensity and fatigue.
