Arthritis.org compiled a list of arthritis-friendly foods, and first on the list was dark leafy green vegetables.
The site says: “Energy production and other metabolic processes in the body produce harmful byproducts called free radicals.
“Not only do free radicals damage cells, but they also have been linked to rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and inflammation.
“Green, leafy vegetables such as broccoli, spinach, Brussels sprouts, kale, Swiss chard and bok choy are packed with antioxidants like vitamins A, C and K, which protect cells from free-radical damage.
“These foods are also high in bone-preserving calcium.”
