Arthritis and pain are common medical complaints. Arthritis can attack at any age. There are many different types of arthritis as well as many different treatments. Consult your physician to determine which treatment best fits your problem. Regardless of the cause of your joint and muscle pain, diet may help relieve your symptoms. Below is a list of anti-inflammatory foods:

Obesity and weight gain adds pressure to your joints, muscles and connected tissues. Pressure on your joints can lead to joint destruction, dysfunction and severe inflammation.

Following a diet that is low in processed foods, saturated fat and is rich in fruits, vegetables, nuts and spices may prevent cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
