Add grapes in your diet to get rid of knee pain: Study

New York, Sat, 10 May 2014 NI Wire

If you are suffering from knee pain then here is good news for you. You can lessen your knee pain with only adding some grapes to your diet. Yes the latest study has revealed the fact that adding some grapes to your diet can help you lessen that excruciating knee pain.

According to research, daily grape consumption may help alleviate pain associated with symptomatic osteoarthritis of the knee and improve joint flexibility and overall mobility.

This is possible because of polyphenols (antioxidants) found in grapes. According to Shanil Juma from Texas Woman's University, US,"Our findings provide promising data that links grape consumption to two very important outcomes for those living with knee osteoarthritis: reduced pain and improvements in joint flexibility.”

During the study, researchers assigned 72 men and women with knee osteoarthritis (OA) to either consume grapes in the form of a whole grape freeze-dried powder or a placebo powder.

The results showed that both men and women consuming a grape-enriched diet had a significant decrease in self-reported pain related to activity and an overall decrease in total knee symptoms.

Surprisingly this beneficial effect was more pronounced in females. Evidence of increased cartilage metabolism was observed in men consuming the grape-enriched diet, the study noted. Osteoarthritis is more likely to occur in people over 45 years of age, and women are more likely to have osteoarthritis than men.
