OLIVE OIL FOR RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS
Studies have shown that the high concentrations of monounsaturated fatty acids in olive oil seem to protect against joint inflammation. The participants in one study who consumed approximately 3 tablespoons of olive oil a day lessened their chance of developing rheumatoid arthritis by 60%. If you suffer from RA, it might be worth it for you to add more olive oil to your diet. Beware though that olive oil can be high in calories so use as a replacement for butter, etc. Don't be afraid of olive oil because of the fat content. Olive oil contains healthy fats your body needs.
