Arthritis is a blanket term that describes severe pain in the joints and inflammation. The condition is usually treated with medicine and proper diet.
The only problem is that there’s really no right diet to follow. However, recent studies have shown that refraining from consuming certain foods can reduce the frequency of joint paint.
According to scientific research, these are the 15 foods that you absolutely need to avoid if you are suffering from arthritis:
1. Refined carbs
Refined carbohydrates, mainly found in refined white flour and store-bought bread, are HGI (high-glycemic index) foods. HGI foods trigger the production of byproducts such as AGEs (advanced glycation end products) which will amplify the severity of joint pain. If that’s not enough to turn you away from grocery store pastries, white bread, and rice, then keep in mind that HGI foods also lead to diabetes and obesity.
