Diet for Arthritis: Vitamins, Nutrients and Supplements that help Arthritis

Arthritis is a medical condition affecting a joint or joints, causing pain, swelling and stiffness. The two most common forms are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis (also called degenerative joint disease) usually affects people after middle age and is characterized by gradual loss of cartilage of the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic condition that can result in weakness, loss of mobility, and eventual destruction and deformity of the joints. It occurs when the body's immune system destroys the synovial membrane lining the joint. Both conditions are intensified if you are overweight.
