7 Drinks to Prevent Arthritis

1. Red Wine

This is great news, but take it with a grain of salt. Red wine contains a compound called resveratrol that is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Regular consumption of red wine has been linked with a lower risk of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

However, you must drink it in moderation. Too much wine, or alcohol of any kind, does just the opposite of what you want. It inflames tissues and causes dehydration, leaving joints achy and swollen. To reap the benefits of red wine, stick to one glass per day for women and two for men.
