2. Red Wine
Here’s a welcome surprise. Red wine is actually good for joint pain. Of course, alcohol, in general, can dull our senses and reduce the pain that way. But red wine, in particular, contains something called resveratrol, a compound with powerful anti-inflammatory properties.
Enjoying a glass or two on a regular basis can actually reduce your risk of developing chronic joint diseases like osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Just be careful not to drink to excess, as too much alcohol is dehydrating and will actually cause the inflammation you’re trying to eliminate. Also, you can get resveratrol from red grapes and red grape juice; it doesn’t necessarily need to be wine.
