Chia Seeds for Joint Pain and Inflammation Associated with Arthritis

By Merab Inyika September 03, 2019

I am sure you have seen Chia seeds popping up on your Instagram a lot lately, because of their super nutritive value and their effect on joint health. So are these nutrient-dense seeds really good at reducing joint pain and inflammation that is associated with arthritis? Read on, let’s find out.


The ancient Aztecs used Chia seeds as a joint pain reliever, among other things. That said, the nutrient composition of Chia seeds has been studied over and over again, and research shows the nutrients found in these tiny seeds are well known for their anti-inflammatory and anti-rheumatic properties.
Let’s talk about the main joint health-promoting nutrients available in Chia Seeds:


Anti-Inflammatory Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Chia seeds are one of the richest plant-based sources of omega-3 fatty acid. Omega-3 fatty acids contain strong anti-inflammatory properties, an increased intake of omega-3 fats reduce joint pain and inflammation, as well as joint stiffness for people with arthritis. Chia seeds don't need to be ground for you benefit from their omega-3 content. Chia has a gel-like coat, which makes its health-promoting fatty acids bioavailable without grinding.


Quercetin – An Unsung Anti-Inflammatory Nutrient
Natural sources of quercetin, include cranberries, red onions, cranberries, and lingonberries. Unknown to many, Chia seeds contain this powerful flavonoid and antioxidant. According to research, quercetin is very effective at fighting inflammation that is responsible for the pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis.


Anti-Arthritis Minerals
Chia seeds contain zinc and copper which are the two most important minerals for people who suffer from joint pains and inflammation. These two minerals are responsible for the production of enzymes that fight inflammation by neutralizing free radicals. Copper also helps the body create connective tissue, ligaments, and tendons, which surround joints and help them stay stable, and zinc is responsible for building enzymes that repair joints.
