Foods To Include In Your Diet To Treat Knee Pain

7. Nuts

Almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, pistachios, and pecans are all types of nuts that are considered as great choices for snacks to enjoy instead of having the unhealthy fat rich fried snacks that are commonly used recently. Since they are toasty, crunchy, and salty, which makes them incredibly satisfying and delicious, but most importantly, they are healthy and beneficial to your body, as they are full of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, which lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart diseases that are associated with certain types of arthritis. They are also strong antioxidants full of vitamins E and minerals like magnesium, zinc, and calcium. Their main anti-inflammatory action comes from their abundance of omega 3 fatty acids especially alpha linoleic acid (ALA) that has been proven to lower c- reactive protein (CRP) levels and IL6,  which are markers of inflammation. For all those benefits it is good to consume nuts daily but in moderation, as they are very high in calories and addictive and if salty can lead to increase in blood pressure.
