The arthritis foundation explained: “If there’s a magical elixir to drink, it’s water. Hydration is vital for flushing toxins out of your body, which can help fight inflammation.”

Water is also a vital part of synovial fluid – which helps to reduce friction between the joints by keeping them lubricated. This process can help to reduce inflammation due to friction.The lubrication of the joints can also “prevent gout attacks”, suggests the charity.

Gout is another type of arthritis where you suddenly experience pain in the joints.

“Drinking water before a meal can also help you eat less, promoting weight loss,” the charity adds. Excess weight is known to worsen symptoms of arthritis.

Water is also vital for helping cartilage cells grow. Most of the cartilage tissue, which is damaged in osteoarthritis, is made of water.
