#4 – Cat’s Claw
Cat’s claw is a popular treatment method for osteoarthritis. It has potent anti-inflammatory properties that help alleviate the swelling in the joints. Because of this, cat’s claw is able to greatly reduce pain, improve mobility, and prevent further damage to the affected joints – all within the first week of treatment. 
#5 – Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in numerous fresh fish like salmon and tuna, as well as vegetables like brussel sprouts and kale. This kind of food is known as “good for the heart” because it promotes cardiovascular health and decreases a person’s risk for hypertension, heart attack, and stroke. All this is because of omega-3’s potent anti-inflammatory properties, which can concurrently also reduce pain in cases. In a study in 2015, omega-3 fatty acids were seen to reduce pain alone or in conjunction with morphine. 
#6 – Curcumin
Curcumin is a primary component of the herb turmeric, which also displays potent analgesic characteristics. In two studies published in 2011 and 2011, the effectiveness of curcumin was seen in cases of neuropathic pain and post-operative pain after laparascopic cholecystectomy. By the third post-operative week, test subjects included in the latter study were completely pain free. Another study even revealed how curcumin was able to alleviate the worst kind of pain – pain caused by burns – because of its strong anti-inflammatory characteristics.
