Anti-Inflammatory Ingredients

Broccoli is known as a superfood, and with good reason. It’s packed with calcium, known for its bone-building and strengthening attributes, is rich in vitamins C and K and contains sulforaphane which can help prevent or slow the progression of osteoarthritis.

Edamame beans are, like oily fish, rich in omega-3 fatty acids which are great for joint health. What’s more, they are a great source of fibre and protein which can help with an overall healthy lifestyle.

Mushrooms have anti-inflammatory properties and are also one of the richest sources of vitamin D outside of meat. Vitamin D is essential in supporting healthy bones, muscles and immunity.

Garlic contains diallyl disulfide, an anti-inflammatory compound that limits the effects of pro-inflammatory cytokines. As a result, garlic can help fight inflammation and may even help prevent cartilage damage from arthritis.
