3 Fresh Juices for Arthritis Pain

3 Fresh Juices for Arthritis Pain

Many of us, especially as we get older, experience the aches and pains of arthritis. Fortunately, there are several things we can do to help reduce the symptoms.

Achieving an ideal body weight can help reduce stress on joints, and in turn ease pain. You can also try eliminating nightshade-family vegetables (tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, tobacco), as these foods can often aggravate arthritis. If you have osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, try glucosamine sulfate, which has been shown to be very effective at a dosage of 1,500 mg per day.

The three fresh juice recipes below contain key ingredients to lessen arthritis pain.

Carol P.
Thanks. Another reason to limit fresh fruit juices is the sugar in them. I'm not talking in terms of overall health (since fruit juice sugar breaks down much easier than sugars in, say, soda) but as someone with sensitive teeth, too much fruit juice can help to erode your gumline. My dentist has advised me to limit my juices to one or two a day, and to have them with meals. Just thought that little nugget of info fit well with yours.

Noted, though too much ginger can also have side effects so limiting these beverages to once or twice a day is a good idea as well.
