2. Coconut oil
Coconut oil is touted by some as a miracle oil that will help you lose weight, protect against heart disease, and even make you smarter. Though there are some benefits associated with coconut oil, do bear in mind that it is a saturated fat. According to the American Heart Association, one tablespoon will net you more than 50% of the daily recommended limit of saturated fat.
However, we are going to recommend that you massage your painful knees with it. The fatty acids contained in coconut oil are natural lubricants and are anti-inflammatory. Simply warm your oil gently so that it melts into a liquid and rub it into affected areas. The combination of massage, natural lubrication, and lauric acid should loosen up your knee joints and minimize pain.
