    8 Diet Tips for Rheumatoid Arthritis Relief

    No. 8. Reach for the Citrus

    Grapefruit and oranges have high amounts of antioxidants to help soothe burning joints. You also get a good dose of vitamin C, which can help limit the wear on your joints, Sandon says. Eating a lot of grapefruit has been known to lower the amount of CRP. You can snack on a tasty clementine, add grapefruit segments to salads, or blend peeled oranges into smoothies.

    When it comes to making big changes in your diet, you can’t do a little here and a little there and expect it to help, Sandon says. Any changes you make need to be part of a long-term pattern if they’re going to help relieve your symptoms.
