Bring the Heat

If you're living with arthritis, you may want to add some spices when you're cooking your next meal. Why? Because spices can help with reducing chronic inflammation. Innovations Stem Cell can also help reduce the inflammation and pain associated with osteoarthritis with stem cell treatment.

Best Spices for Arthritis

Garlic. Garlic is a great (and tasty) way to flavor almost any meal, but garlic and its cousins the onion and the leek also contain diallyl disulfide, an anti-inflammatory compound that can keep your painful symptoms in check and also slow down the progression of your condition.

Turmeric. Turmeric is one of the most beneficial spices to add to your food or take on its own because it contains the active chemical curcumin, which can help block cytokines and other inflammatory enzymes. Turmeric is often found in Indian dishes, but it is also yummy in soups, stews and chilis. Researchers have found that it is especially useful when combined with black pepper.

Ginger. Like garlic and turmeric, ginger helps to reduce the body's inflammatory response. Use ginger in both sweet and savory dishes, and if possible use it in its fresh form. Ginger tea is also especially beneficial and is also good for digestion.

Cayenne and Other Chili Peppers. Hot peppers are chock full of natural compounds called capsaicinoids. These compounds are known for their anti-inflammatory benefits. Add them to kick your sauces, marinades and rubs up a bit - but start slow if you're not used to spicy.

Cinnamon is also thought to have its benefits, but these benefits are not fully known yet for those living with osteoarthritis.

Adding spices can also benefit individuals living with rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune conditions, but not all spices are good for all conditions. For example, those living with lupus should avoid garlic because it can amp up the body's immune response.

When adding spices to your food, fresh is best if available. Don't be afraid to season your favorite sauces, soups and other dishes and see if your joints benefit.
