In brief: Omega fatty acids

Omega fatty acids have been shown to decrease inflammation and help with arthritis pain.
These can be found in natural foods like fish, sea algae, avocados, olives, flax, or in supplements made of the same foods. Also staying active and flexible can help prevent stiffness. Yoga, tai chi, pilates, swimming, walking all can help. Glucosamine and chondroitin are controversial, but may help.
