7 Herbs to Fight Joint and Knee Pain

7. Rosemary


Rosemary (along with its clary sage) contains similar anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds. Both are excellent for relieving joint and knee pain. However, rosemary also has a so-called rosemary acid, which reduces inflammation and alleviates skin diseases, reduces stress, stimulates hair growth and improves blood sugar. It can even suppress Alzheimer’s disease!


Rosemary has a sweet, slightly pine-like taste that goes well with grilled meat and vegetables. If you want to cook with it, add a few minutes of fresh rosemary to your cooking oil before adding the rest of the meal. Of course, dried rosemary is also delicious to sprinkle on food during the cooking process, and you can get a tincture, essential oil, or capsule on days you don’t plan to cook with it.
