The Best Drink for Rheumatoid Arthritis?!
There’s no doubt that your lifestyle can impact rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
Unlike osteoarthritis, which is caused by wear and tear, RA is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks the joints.
This leads to joint pain, inflammation, stiffness—and ultimately, disfigurement and disability.
The key is to tame this inflammatory response, which is why lifestyle plays such a pivotal role.
This includes what you eat and drink.
Today, I want to tell you about one vital drink that can go a long way toward keeping RA-associated fatigue, stiffness, and pain at bay.
I’m not talking about a vegetable drink, green tea, coffee, wine, or some other health elixir.
I’m talking about pure, simple water.
It’s easy to underestimate the power of water for your overall health… until you don’t get enough of it. Dehydration can lead to fatigue, cramps, headaches, confusion, sleepiness, dry skin, and more.
But you probably already knew that.
What you might NOT have known is how much dehydration can impact rheumatoid arthritis.
You see, up to 80 percent of the cartilage in your body is made of water. This is tissue that covers the ends of your joints.
Staying properly hydrated directly impacts how your joints FEEL because it allows the cartilage to function properly and reduces the friction between your bones.
Think of cartilage like a sponge, and picture the difference between a pliable wet sponge and an inflexible dry one.
Staying hydrated is important for producing enough synovial fluid, which is the liquid between your joints that acts as a cushion and helps prevent friction.
Water also helps flush toxins out of your body, reducing overall inflammation and getting to the heart of the condition.
Will guzzling gallons of water cure your arthritis? No.
But by helping support healthy joint function and reducing inflammation, staying hydrated can be a powerful tool in keeping RA symptoms at bay.
P.S. Researchers recently identified a surprising supplement that can help with the characteristic pain and swelling of RA. Click here to find out what it is.
