7 Vitamins Every Arthritis Sufferer Should Know About
by Emily Clark

As an alternative to getting your RDA through diet, many people now take vitamin
supplements.

The following list of vitamins are known to be especially beneficial to arthritis
sufferers:

Vitamin B5 - When grouped and tanked together, B vitamins work at their peak.
They, and B5 specifically, are good for reducing swelling.

Vitamin B3 - This vitamin reduces tissue swelling and dilates small arteries, increasing
blood flow. Note that Vitamin B3 is NOT advised for persons with high blood
pressure, gout or liver disorders.

Vitamin B6 - Another B that reduces tissue swelling.

Vitamin B12 - This vitamin aids in multiple functions. It helps with cell formation,
digestion, myelin production, nerve protection.

Vitamin C - This vitamin acts as an anti-inflammatory, relieving pain, and rids the
body of free radicals.

Vitamin E - This is a strong antioxidant that protects joints from free radicals while
increases joint flexibility.

Vitamin K - This vitamin assists with mineral deposit into the bone matrix.

Vitamins combine with enzymes involved with tissue repair, cell production and our
metabolism.

There are two types of vitamins:

Water Soluble - These vitamins (B and C complex) are not stored in our body organs
and usually pass through our bodies very quickly, in the form of urine. It is therefore
important to have regular daily intakes of these vitamins.

Fat Soluble - Vitamins A, D, E and K stay in the body as they are stored in the liver.

fruits and vegetables. Due to the
following factors, it is not always
possible to get our recommended
daily allowance (RDA) of vitamins:
