The jointpain significantly aggravates even with the easiest daily activities and leads to inflammation, discomfort, andswellings. Many people suffer from these pains, no matter their age or their gender.
The pain can vary from mild to severe, from chronictoacute.
The main causes of joint pain are arthritisandgout, and also injuries, leukemia, dislocated or broken bones, strained muscles, fibromyalgia, lupus, and even bursitis. The pain in the joints could also be aggravated by some specific foods, and in contrast, soothed by others.
These are some foods that you should avoid in case you have joint pain:
Sugar and artificial sugars
Excess sugar amounts can lead to inflammation and more AGEs. Sugar is able to trigger cytokines, the inflammation agent triggers. Additionally, sugar leads to weight gainandpressure on the joints.
You need to also avoid sweet drinksandsodas. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2014published a study, which showed that all these foods might contribute to the incidence of rheumatoid arthritis in women.
Therefore, use molasses, honey, or Stevia, and avoid sweets, sugar, candies, snacks, sodas, pastries, andcereals with sugar.
The excessive alcohol intake has a negative effect on the joint pain. Beer contains purines and they are converted to uric acid which is detrimental to joint pain. This beverage also contains gluten,very harmful to fragile joints.
Red and processed meat
Red and processed meats have chemical nitrite and purine that can aggravate the pain and inflammation, as well as toxins such as glycation and products AGEs. According to a study conducted in 2014 at the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the glucan in the red meat supports the cancer growth and it also worsens inflammation.
The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published another study where it was found a link between the red meat and the inflammation markers.
Dairy products also worsen the joint pain, because they are high in protein. According to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, the protein irritates the surrounding joint tissues as well.
Furthermore, the saturated fats in dairy (milk, cheese, butter) are also detrimental to the joint pain. As a substitute you should consume almond, soy milk, margarineor tofu.
The regular consumption of eggs leads to more swellingsandinflammation. The yolk aggravates the inflammation because it contains arachidonic acid which produces prostaglandins (causers of inflammation). Also, the eggs contain saturated fats, and they have detrimental effects as well.
Monosodium glutamate foods
The MSG additive is being added to foods in order to improve their flavor, but it’s extremely bad in the case of rheumatoid arthritis.
Grains and refined flour
They have a high glycemic index which stimulates more AGEs and it also supports inflammation.
It has been shown that the regular consumption of wheat items and grain cereals can help the development of chronic autoimmune diseases, and raises the risk of diabetes, heart issues, and even cancer. You need to replace them with almond, coconut, whole grain, brown rice.
The joint inflammation is also aggravated by glutenandcasein. Casein produces uric acid, which in excessive levels can lead to joint inflammation.
This condition is otherwise known as gout. People with gluten sensitivity are also predisposed to gout. The Journal Nutrition Biochemistry in 2013published a study where it was shown that foods without glutencan reduce inflammation, adiposity, and insulin resistance.
The table salt is high in chemicals and additives that impair the fluid balance inside the body. To prevent the loss of calcium, needed for the bones, it’s best to avoid this salt. Junk foods are also full in salt, and instead, eat it in reduced amounts, or replace it with sea saltorHimalayan pink salt.
Corn oil is high in omega 6 fatty acids, which are very dangerous to our health. The study that was published in the Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism showed that these acids could lead to inflammation.
Therefore, avoid peanuts, soy, salad dressings, grape seed, and safflower oil. You should not entirelyremove omega 5 acids from your diet but you should always eat them, just moderately.
