Helpful Arthritis Food #2: Grapes

Grapes are high in antioxidants, have anti-inflammatory properties, and packed with nutrients. They may be beneficial for those with arthritis as they contain compounds that can help manage arthritis.

One of the compounds known as resveratrol is an antioxidant present in grape skin. Resveratrol has been found to have the potential to prevent joint thickening that may occur in arthritis by blocking rheumatoid arthritis cell formation. Grapes also contain proanthocyanidin, which has the potential to decrease inflammation. One study involving 24 participants found that grape powder consumption reduces levels of inflammatory markers.
