How can eating more fruits and veggies help manage knee osteoarthritis (OA)?

ANSWER

Eating more fruits and veggies can help with osteoarthritis. That's because many are loaded with antioxidants -- substances that can help protect your cells from damage.

Some antioxidants, found in fruits and veggies like apples, onions, shallots, and strawberries, may also lower joint inflammation and pain.
