Muesli Could Help with Arthritis
The latest findings from a study led by researchers at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universitat Erlangen-Nurnberg (FAU) in Germany revealed that the consumption of a healthy diet rich in fibre could change the intestinal bacteria in a way that more short-chained fatty acids, in particular propionate, are formed. This diet consists of a breakfast containing muesli and enough fruits and vegetables throughout the day.
The researchers suggest that these short-chained fatty acids are important for the body as it serves as a source of energy, stimulates intestinal movements and have anti-inflammatory properties. The team has also proven that a higher concentration of short-chained fatty acids that can be found in the bone marrow is slowing down bone degradation significantly, and could therefore mark the start of new forms of treatments for inflammatory joint diseases and osteoarthritis.
