9 Worst Foods for Arthritis and Joint Pain - Avoid Them !! These are, the 9 foods, that you must avoid as far as possible, if you have arthritis, and joint pain.
I'm not saying that, you should completely eliminate them from your diet, but, you should try to minimize their consumption, especially, if you have arthritis.
These foods, can worsen your already painful joint pains.
1. Fried & Processed Foods.
Fried foods are rich in toxins called, advanced glycation end products, also called as, AGE.
These toxins, boost the oxidation in the cells, and thus aggravate the inflammation.
So, when choosing processed foods, read the label, and make sure that, they don't have more than 2-3 ingredients.
2. Refined Carbohydrates.
Processed carbohydrates, from white flour products like, bread, crackers, white rice, or, white potatoes, have high glycemic index, and thus trigger inflammation.
Instead, consume complex carbohydrates, such as, peas, beans, and green vegetables.
3. Gluten & Wheat.
Wheat, and gluten, cause inflammation in many people, especially, in those suffering from a leaky gut, as it allows toxins and waste to enter the bloodstream, through your intestines, leading to an immune response, and inflammation.
4. Processed Sugar.
Processed sugar triggers, the release of inflammatory messengers, called cytokines, which can worsen your joint pains.
Instead of processed sugar, you can use unrefined sugar, such as, honey, date sugar, maple sugar, brown rice syrup, etc., in limited amounts.
Removing processed sugar from diet completely, is not only helpful for your joint pains, but also to your overall health.
Most dairy products contain casein, which is a protein type, that causes inflammation, as it irritates the tissues around the joints.
Therefore, you should limit your consumption of dairy products.
6. Seed-based Oils.
Most seed-based oils, are rich in omega-6 fatty acids.
According to many studies, omega-6 fatty acids, increase inflammation, while omega-3, reduce it.
Instead of seed oils, you can use olive oil, rice bran oil, mustard oil, sesame oil, etc.,
Excessive salt intake causes, water imbalances in the body, leading to edema, and high pressure on the blood vessels.
This worsens arthritis, and results in pain, and inflammation.
Nightshades contain alkaloids, which in arthritis patients, show pro-inflammatory properties, and thus, intensify the pain, and inflammation.
Therefore, you should reduce the consumption of white potatoes, tomatoes, pepper, paprika, and, eggplants.
9. Red Meat.
Red meat contains, high levels of an omega-6 fatty acid, called, arachidonic acid, which may increase pain, and inflammation.
People suffering from arthritis, should limit the intake of red meat to, one, or, two servings per week.
