Studies Recommend Strawberry Consumption To Reduce Inflammation

Orlando, FL - February 13, 2015 - Strawberries are among the delicious and healthy fruits that are widely available in the market today. It is extremely popular and is incorporated in a wide variety of dishes, desserts and beverages. One of the best things about strawberries is that they are also rich in vitamins and minerals.

Following recent research, experts are now recommending strawberry consumption to reduce inflammation. Many arthritis patients find this beneficial, as inflammation plays a major role in the condition. Inflammation and swelling around the joints can cause extreme pain.

Many experts believe that strawberries can significantly help lower C-reactive protein (CRP) levels in the blood. C-reactive protein is a sign of inflammation in the body. High levels of CRP is associated with rheumatoid arthritis and an increased risk of stroke and heart attack.

The Harvard School of Public Health conducted an investigation that revealed women who ate more than 16 strawberries every week were less susceptible to having high levels of C-reactive protein. The strawberries used were either frozen or fresh. The study also found that strawberries may be very helpful to patients with arthritis too.

“Arthritis and heart disease are among the medical conditions that are associated with elevated levels of inflammatory metabolites in the body. Flavonoids, which are usually found in berries, are believed to have the ability to reduce markers of inflammation,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.  

Clinical studies suggest that berries contain high amounts of flavonoids, which are known to reduce inflammation. Some of these studies found that the eating strawberries may slow down the onset of inflammation-associated chronic diseases such as arthritis. The fruit is also known to be an excellent source of vitamin c, which is essential in maintaining the collagen and connective tissues in the body. In a recent study, it was also found that men who ate more vitamin C fruits, such as strawberries, were less likely to be diagnosed with osteoarthritis.

Health experts strongly recommend that those who are highly susceptible to developing arthritis should improve their food choices and overall diet. It is suggested that they eat food items that are believed to fight arthritic conditions and avoid those that trigger certain symptoms.

While it has not yet been proven whether strawberries can truly help prevent arthritis, health professionals suggest increased intake of the fruit. They believe that eating the fruit will do no harm and instead nourish the body with vitamins and nutrients.

In addition to eating anti-inflammatory foods, it is suggested that those already suffering from symptoms take glucosamine supplements for added joint pain management. Glucosamine supplements are believed to be quite helpful in providing pain relief and potentially improving mobility of arthritis sufferers (http://www.amazon.com/Glucosamine-Sulfate-Chondroitin-Supplement-Turmeric/dp/B00DUMO9X4).
