Diet for Osteoarthritis Patients

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, affecting millions of people worldwide. It occurs when the protective cartilage that cushions the ends of your bones wears down over time. This condition is usually common in elders above 40 years of age. Here, a diet which is rich in high-fiber, proteins, beta-carotene, magnesium, calcium and omega 3 fatty acids is helpful to reduce joint inflammation and pain.
