The Mediterranean Diet abounds with fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts and olive oil. It also features moderate portions of fish, poultry—and even a little red wine!
These fresh, flavorful foods contain numerous nutrients, powerful antioxidants and healthy omega-3 fatty acids, which can help you:
- Curb inflammation and relieve joint pain
- Manage your weight (even losing just a few pounds can help relieve excess stress and pressure on knees and hips)
- Boost your immune system
This simple style of European eating is easy to prepare and even easier to eat. Is your palate piqued? Start a Mediterranean diet today. It’s good for you and your joints!
