Arthritis diet – the common vegetable you should avoid or risk painful joint symptoms

Arthritis is a common condition that can affect people of all ages, according to the NHS. But regularly adding more aubergine to your diet could help to protect against the condition, it’s believed.

Arthritis pain can lead to a number of debilitating symptoms that patients will want to try and avoid.

The condition can make life more difficult when carrying out simply, everyday tasks.

It’s crucial that if you develop signs of arthritis, you speak to a doctor as soon as possible to try and find a treatment to relieve your pain.

You may be increasing your chances of arthritis flare-ups by eating aubergine, it’s been claimed.

“If you have rheumatoid arthritis, a diet change could help you, and perhaps even eliminate your pain entirely,” said the PCRM.

“In research studies, many people who cut out certain trigger foods find that their pain improves or goes away.

“The reason, presumably, is that certain foods spark inflammation in the joints.

“A survey of more than 1,000 arthritis patients revealed that red meat, sugar, fat, salt, caffeine, and nightshade plants [e.g., tomatoes, aubergine] most commonly worsen the condition. Research also shows that dairy protein may make symptoms worse.”
