Fiber In a recent study, subjects who ate the most fiber were less likely to have knee arthritis than those who ate the least. Abundant in fruit and veggies, fiber can help keep weight in check and may have anti-inflammatory properties.
Vitamin K People with the highest levels of vitamin K in their blood were less likely to develop knee arthritis, in one study. Boost your levels by eating spinach and other leafy greens, cabbage and cauliflower.
Wine Research found that those who drank wine in moderation were less likely to have knee or hip arthritis. Beer drinkers, however, upped their risk. The difference may be due to the protective antioxidants in dark-skinned grapes.
