This article tackle’s about natural way to fight knee-pain in the sweetest way possible.

    If you are suffering for knee pain, don’t worry –you’re not the only one who has it. The thing about knee-pain is that it paralyzes you to move around and do your normal routine. A new study shows that adding grapes to your diet can help pacify knee pain. Daily intake of grapes could help reduce pain associated with osteoarthritis of the knee and better both joint and body mobility. One research stated that this could be plausible because of the present of polyphenols (antioxidants) in grapes.

    During the presentation, Dr. Juma also shared results from a recent cell study that looked at the effects of whole grape polyphenols on cartilage cell integrity and markers of cartilage health. Cartilage cells were first treated with various doses of whole grape polyphenols, and then stimulated with an inflammatory agent. Cell proliferation significantly increased – in a dose dependent manner – in the grape polyphenol treated cells in the presence of an inflammatory agent.

    Additionally a marker for cartilage degradation was significantly lower with the three highest doses of the whole grape polyphenols when compared to control cells and cells treated with the inflammatory agent, suggesting a possible protective effect of grapes on cartilage cells.

    Most of the cases reported that are linked to knee-pain is our beloved elderly people, age is a major factor on why they are experiencing this excruciating pain, although researchers have devout themselves to finding a solution if not to end but at least to reduce the pain –they should also not forget the safety of those who subscribe to their medical finding, for instance; grapes is known to be very sweet, and elderly men and women should not have too much intake on anything sweet because their age requires balance diet. My appeal to those who suggested grapes as a remedy for knee-pain is that they should also educate or tackle the dosage or the appropriate amount of consumption a person should take, and consider age bracket. This is to insure the imposing of proper diet.
