Are Grapes Good for Arthritis? (Expert Answer)

Short Answer: Grapes are good for arthritis because they contain resveratrol, an antioxidant that can reduce inflammation and improve joint function.

Grapes are good for arthritis because they contain resveratrol, an antioxidant in the skin of grapes.

Resveratrol can reduce inflammation and improve joint function in people with osteoarthritis, a common type of arthritis that affects the joints.

Grapes are also a good source of vitamin C, vitamin K, and folate, which are nutrients that can help prevent and manage arthritis symptoms.

You can eat two to three servings of grapes per day safely.

More than that can cause excess sugar intake and weight gain, which can worsen arthritis and other chronic conditions.

That’s why I suggest you limit your grapes intake to two to three servings per day to minimize the side effects with reasons.

Also, you shouldn’t eat grapes if you have gout, a type of arthritis that causes sudden and severe joint pain due to high levels of uric acid in the blood.

Because grapes are high in purines, a type of nutrient that can increase uric acid production.

I hope this answer helps you understand how grapes can benefit people with arthritis.

Remember, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet, regular exercise, stress management and essential medical care is key to managing/dealing with arthritis effectively.

I always recommend my arthritis patients to follow an anti-inflammatory diet to improve their overall well-being, and enjoy a longer and healthier life.
