Amino acids play vital roles in arthritis treatment, supporting joint health and immune function. Key amino acids like glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline contribute to collagen synthesis, improving cartilage integrity. Glutamine regulates inflammation, while arginine enhances blood flow to joints. Methionine’s sulfur content aids in cartilage synthesis.
While research on direct supplementation is ongoing, collagen peptides and certain amino acids have shown potential in alleviating arthritis symptoms.
A whole food plant-based diet with diverse protein sources will ensure sufficient amino acid intake, complementing arthritis management. Further research may unveil new possibilities for amino acids in arthritis care. Read more . . .
