Dried Apple Peel May Help Joint Health

When joints become inflamed, whether from injury or age, it can lead to joint pain and restricted range of motion. A recent study suggests that taking a supplement of antioxidant-rich apple peel powder may improve range of motion and rotation in joints as well as reduce pain.

Participants in the study included 12 people between the ages of 48 and 73 who had reduced range of motion and chronic pain in their joints. They were given 4.25 grams of organic apple peel powder once a day for twelve weeks.

At the conclusion of the study, the participants showed improvements in range of motion in their backs and rotation improvement in the thoracic, lumbar, and hip joints. They also reported decreased pain.

They also had improved serum antioxidant protection status. Antioxidants help fight oxidative stress and reduce inflammation.

Researchers from NIS Labs conducted the study. It was published online ahead of print on October 1, 2014, in the Journal of Medicinal Food.

Apple peel powder is rich in antioxidants and fiber. Previous studies suggest that, in addition to joint health, apple peel powder may aid with cardiovascular health, cognitive function, immune health, and healthy stress responses.
