Knee Pain Clinic
A diet rich in fiber has a lot of health benefits, for instance, it can help reduce cholesterol, control your blood sugar levels and promotes beneficial gut bacteria. In addition, fiber is well known to prevent obesity and reduce inflammation, both keys in developing knee osteoarthritis and joint pain.
Most people in the United States don’t eat enough fiber, leading them to frequent visits to the doctor’s office. The average American consumes 15 to 18 grams of fiber. However, the U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends about 30 grams of dietary fiber a day for men and 25 grams for women. Luckily for you, by just adding one fruit, vegetable or whole grain to your meals can help dramatically reduce knee pain.
