Yes, you can improve your flexibility by eating the right foods! Certain foods can add important vitamins, minerals and lubrication to help make your body more flexible, while others may be doing the opposite.
Coffee, alcohol, excess consumption of red meat, wheat, sugar, and salt may all be affecting your flexibility by creating dehydration and inflammation.
