Introduction: There have been many studies which show a clear link between certain foods and drinks and a flare up of osteoarthritis. My short piece of advice is to skip the the solanum (nightshade) family-cooked tomatoes, aubergine, bell peppers, tobacco- as research has shown that certain substances found in these foods (and in tobacco) get in the way of normal collagen repair in the joints and/or promote inflammatory degeneration. Other foods to cut down on or skip altogether are dairy products, oranges, refined sugar (that’s a big one), and excessive alcohol and red meat consumption. Do that and have this juice once a day and you’ll be amazed at how the body, given the chance, can begin to heal.
