Vitamins for Arthritis







Vitamins for Arthritis is the final chapter in our quest for helping to heal and soothe the pain and and other unpleasant symptoms of osteoarthritis.

We have taken a good look at what causes arthritis pain, we have shown simple and easy home remedies for arthritis and we have established what we should or should not be eating in natural-remedies-for arthritis.

Although this painful disease is also a result of many years of wear and tear on the joints, a lot can be done to help ease the effects of this by correcting eating habits, which includes eating the foods that have the appropriate vitamins for helping with Osteoarthritis.




It must be noted that the study of Vitamins is an intensive and detailed exercise and that our mission for this website has, and always will be, to keep it simple and keep it real.

So, what we have done here is to identify the vitamins for arthritis available in foods which will help either prevent arthritis or help with the soothing of arthritis symptoms.



Vitamin C.

Also known as ascorbic acid, Vitamin c is a very powerful antioxidant that is required for hundreds of metabolic functions in the body including tissue growth and repair.

It is probably better known as a remedy for the common cold, but as far as arthritis sufferers are concerned it is vital for the production of collagen, which is a protein needed for healthy skin, bones and cartilage.

It enhances the body's ability to repair damage to cartilage, therefore an important vitamin for prevention of, and help in, soothing arthritis symptoms.

  • Oranges
  • broccoli
  • strawberries
  • peppers
  • cranberries
  • asparagus
  • avocados
  • lemons
  • mangos
  • onions
  • spinach
  • tomatoes
  • kiwi fruit
  • pineapples are a rich source of Vitamin c and they also contain an enzyme called bromelain that helps reduce the swelling and inflammation of many painful inflammatory conditions including arthritis.


Vitamin D.

This vitamin is critical for preserving muscle strength, it is needed to absorb calcium and phosphorus, and is thus vital to healthy bone structure.

  • breakfast cereals
  • eggs
  • oily fish
  • dairy products
  • oysters
  • salmon
  • sardines
  • sweet potatoes
  • tuna


Vitamin E.

A deficiency in Vitamin E is actually very rare, but because it is an active antioxidant compound, it prevents damage caused by oxidation to poly-unsaturated fatty acids found in cell membranes.

Natural sources of Vitamin E can be found in the following foods:

  • Almonds
  • Hazelnuts
  • Peanuts
  • Avocado's
  • Brown Rice
  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Oatmeal
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Sunflower Oil

  • spinach
  • broccoli
  • cabbage
  • brussel sprouts
  • asparagus
  • molasses
  • chicken
