8. Incorporate more omega-3 fatty acids –
Omega-3 fatty acids are excellent at relieving inflammation and soothing painful joints. Coldwater fish such as salmon and tuna are among the best dietary sources of omega-3 fatty acids. Your body may need more omega-3s than you can consume from eating fish alone, so it is a good idea to talk to your doctor about adding an omega-3 supplement. You should always cook with canola oil over corn oil. Canola contains omega-3s while corn oil contains omega-6 fatty acids, which can make inflammation and arthritis pain worse. For vegetarian people, Flaxseeds, Walnuts, and tofu are great sources of omega 2 fatty acids.
