While pain in your knees is usually a result of an injury or a physiological imbalance, there are ways you can help alleviate the pain through diet and supplements.

  1. Animal protein

Animal protein contains all the essential amino acids necessary for the repair and recovery of your body. Injured knees need protein to recover so make sure to eat 60-80g of protein daily.

  1. Water
