A Diet for Your Joints, Part 3

A Diet for Your Joints, Part 3

The July/August 2008 edition of Nutrition has an article on the benefits of pomegranate extract for joint health. A study done on rats found that subjects who had arthritis and took pomegranate extract delayed the onset and reduced the severity of osteoarthritis inflammation. Joint destruction was also decreased in those subjects.

So, grab you some pomegranate juice or extract and you could improve your joint health while reducing your risk of developing or worsening arthritis.

Thanks to Sarah Bursi, a nutrition major and friend of mine from the University of Memphis for the heads-up on this interesting article. You can see the article abstract here.
