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.

Ginger: A Great Food for Arthritis Sufferers

 

Go Away Pain

Here is a powerful anti-inflammatory recipe.

1 cup blueberries
1/4 pineapple with skin, sliced
4 celery ribs
Juice the turmeric, followed by the blueberries, pineapple, and celery.

A classic drink to promote good health. It may also help to lower cholesterol.

1-inch slice of ginger
1 apple, cut into wedges

Pineapple-Ginger Ale

This drink is absolutely delicious and packed full of therapeutic nutrients.

Didn't know about the nightshade family being bad for arthritis. I have osteoarthritis, and I love all the nightshade plants. Ah well.
