What to eat to ease painful knees

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.

  • 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.

  • Water
  • Approximately 60% of joint cartilage is made from water so hydration is key to keeping our joints supple which can also help reduce knee pain.

  • Collagen
  • Collagen plays an important role in the building of joint cartilage and reduction of inflammation. You can obtain collagen through bone soup or by taking collagen supplements.

  • Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM
  • Although these can be supplemented individually, they are often found in a combination of two or more for maximum effectiveness.  These supplements help stimulate growth of cartilage and ease inflammation.
