Grapes are little berries with lots to give when it comes to essential nutrients for helping your body curb the symptoms of a painful arthritis flare-up.

Grapes are high in antioxidants, which gives them powerful anti-inflammatory properties.

One small study of 24 men gave participants a concentrated grape powder which was the equivalent to a serving of 250 grams of fresh grapes for three weeks.

Those who received grape powder saw the levels of inflammation decrease, compared to those who were given a placebo.

Well, you’re in luck: red wine contains resveratrol – the plant-based compound known for its anti-inflammatory properties.

According to Arthritis.org: “Some studies show wine consumption is associated with a reduced risk of knee osteoarthritis, and moderate drinking is also associated with a reduced risk of rheumatoid arthritis.”

The key word here is moderation, which would mean no more than one glass of red wine per day.

However, if you have gout, all types of alcohol are to be avoided.
