7. Fish Oil
The omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil have an anti-inflammatory effect in the body and can help reduce pain.
- Simply consume one to two teaspoons of fish oil daily.
- Taking fish oil supplements in the morning on an empty stomach reduces morning stiffness.
Along with supplements, you should also eat cold-water fish and other natural products like flax seeds that are high in omega-3 fatty acids.
Alfalfa is another herb that can be used by those suffering from arthritis because it is rich in minerals and helps regulate pH levels.
- You can make a healthy cup of tea using alfalfa seeds. Simply add half or one teaspoon of the seeds to a cup of boiling water. Let it simmer for 20 to 30 minutes with a lid on and then strain it. Drink this twice daily for two to three weeks to reduce inflammation.
- You can also opt for alfalfa capsules, which are readily available in the market and can be taken daily.
