Ease Arthritis Inflammation with a Purple Potato!


If you are an arthritis sufferer, this is an interesting and all-natural option to help reduce your arthritis inflammation. By adding this colorful food to your daily diet you can see amazing benefits in just a few weeks.

In a recent study published in the Journal of Nutrition, researchers have found that pigmented potatoes are shown to reduce C-reactive protein, an important biomarker for inflammation. In this 6 week study, 36 men aged 18-40 found that those who consumed more than 5 oz of purple potatoes a day had a 50% reduction in C-reactive protein. There was only a 35% reduction when eating yellow potatoes.
