Fish and Shrimp for Joint Pain?

We've all know by now that fish and shrimp are a great source of protein.  Many of us also know that fish and shrimp are a great source of essential fatty acids.  But did you know that fish and shrimp can also help with joint pain?

Many people suffer from joint pain whether it's arthritis or tendinitis.  Pink colored seafood like salmon, lobster, crab, and shrimp also have anti-inflammatory properties that will aid with joint pain.  Many people warn against the over consumption of seafood because of the possibility of mercury poisoning.  Therefore, eating 2 or 3 servings of seafood per week should be beneficial to your health and your joint pain.

If seafood is not your style, you can always turn to fish oil.  Many people buy fish oil to ensure they are receiving they proper amount of omega-3s in their diet.  Taking 1 or 2 tablespoons of fish oil per day, whether in liquid or pill form, will also improve your overall health and aid with joint pain.
