The truth about nuts and arthritis: everything you need to know

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

It’s as though Mother Nature planned it. Little NUggets of Total Splendidness (NUTS), hidden in trees and bushes, and even sometimes underground, for us to find. And to make it better, these little treasures are actually good for us, and delicious.

Too good to be true? Definitely not, and for those of us with arthritis — whether rheumatoid or osteoarthritis — nuts can be an important part of your daily health routine. Nuts are high in protein and essential fats, fiber, magnesium, and multiple vitamins, depending on which kind you’re eating. 

Here, we break down the best nuts for arthritis and the truth on whether or not nuts are anti-inflammatory.


The connection between nuts and arthritis

As with most foods both healthy and unhealthy, there can be a close connection between eating nuts and arthritis flare-ups.

It starts with a key component of nuts — their healthy fats. Nuts are key sources of both monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. This makes nuts a key component in an anti-inflammatory diet. Because certain types of heart diseases can be boosted by arthritis, eating foods such as nuts that can work to curb high cholesterol is of extra importance. 

Beyond that, the vitamins and minerals in nuts can work as great antioxidants. These antioxidants protect the cells in your body from free radicals, which are generated in your body when you are exposed to unhealthy situations like smoke, pollution, and during the digestive process.

The one thing to keep in mind with nuts is that they are a high-fat food (despite that the fats are generally healthier than saturated fats, though there some saturated fats in nuts). You don’t want too much fat, and as such nuts should be eaten in moderation. As tempting as that bag of pistachios might be, drag it out across the week rather than eating it all in one sitting while watching a football game.


Walnuts and inflammation: the truth

As a Haka Life Warrior, you know the importance of omega-3 fatty acids when it comes to combating joint pain and inflammation. Walnuts are the highest in omega-3s, and can also reduce inflammation-linked cardiovascular disease due to their ability to reduce C-reactive protein.

Walnuts are absorbed by the body in a way that allows the blood vessels to pump blood more efficiently, a benefit to the heart and to inflammation throughout the body. 

A great way to add more walnuts to your anti-inflammatory diet is to toast them in the oven (try adding rosemary and/or tossing the walnuts in olive oil beforehand for extra flavor) and cook to a lite crisp. This makes them delicious additions to salads and casseroles. You can even top a bowl of soup with a few sliced walnuts, because who doesn’t love a bit of crunch?


The other best nuts for arthritis (and their benefits)

Beyond walnuts, there are many other nuts that can do you good in the fight against joint pain and inflammation. 

Pistachios are high in potassium, lutein, Vitamins A and E, and magnesium, making them an all-in-one inflammation-fighting punch. Because they must be de-shelled before being eaten, keeping track of your portion size is easier with pistachios than with most other nuts. And the best part is that while pistachios are great on salads or as toppers on other dishes, they’re often best all by themselves. Simply grab a handful, a plate, and settle in for a healthy snack.

  • The big 3: full of vitamins and minerals, fun to eat and easy to carry, and perfect as a topper on simple recipes

Almonds pack fiber better than the other nuts on this list, immediately giving them an advantage. Almonds can be good for high cholesterol, especially if you can manage to substitute them for high-cholesterol foods like egg yolks, full-fat yogurt, and french fries. We like to carry a bag of almonds (or mixed nuts) with us when traveling or heading out for the day, as they help to quell the snack urge — which can prevent the ordering of that unnecessary and unhealthy appetizer.

  • The Big 3: filling, high in fiber, anti-inflammatory

We close with what can only be described as a “freebie.” Peanuts are the most common nut found in trail mixes, snacks, nut butter, and even those little baggies you get on the airplane. Don’t shy away from them — peanuts have more protein than any other nut. They provide both poly- and mono-unsaturated fats and are the easiest nut to include in recipes. Try a Thai peanut sauce with a stir fry, or bring a bag of gorp along with you the next time you embark on an outdoor adventure.

  • The big 3: cheap and available en masse, good for kids, high in protein

Other nuts can be helpful for your diet as well. Speak with your doctor if you have dietary restrictions or need advice on your personal situation. And remember — in a pinch, even a simple peanut butter and jelly sandwich is better than no nuts at all.
