7 Secret Joint Pain Triggers!



If you suffer from joint pain, there are certain foods you should avoid to keep your pain manageable. Take a look at the list below to make sure none of these end up on your menu …

  1. AGEs: These are made when you cook meat at high heat. Too many AGEs can make arthritis worse by causing inflammation.
  2. Alcohol: Drinking too much alcohol can make inflammation worse.
  3. Omega-6 Fatty Acids: Eating a lot of foods with omega-6s (like mayonnaise) can make your body produce chemicals that cause inflammation.
  4. Purines: Foods with lots of purines (like bacon, beef, pork, and lamb) can raise the uric acid level in your body. Too much uric acid can make sharp crystals in your joints, causing pain and swelling.
  5. Salt: Eating too much salt can make your joints stiff and swollen, and cause your body to hold onto fluids, making swelling and pain worse. People with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are at risk because RA medicine can make your body keep more sodium.
  6. Saturated Fats: Full-fat dairy has saturated fats that can cause inflammation. They can also make cartilage weaker, leading to damage that causes osteoarthritis.
  7. Sugar: Sugary foods can make your arthritis symptoms worse by causing inflammation.
