Five foods to avoid

As reported by our colleagues from C news, it is advisable to exclude certain common foods from your diet in order to reduce the pain associated with osteoarthritis. Indeed, the lack of physical activity and the fact of following a poor diet are among the factors likely to lead to or aggravate the symptoms linked to chronic degenerative arthropathy.

As a reminder, this disease is an inflammatory reaction of the joint which results from an inflammation of the cartilages. For this reason, it is advisable to limit the consumption of foods that promote inflammation such as cold cuts or red meat, two very acidifying foods, rich in salt and saturated fatty acids. For the same reasons, it is advisable to avoid vegetable oils rich in omega-6 and to favor more omega-3, fatty acids recognized for their anti-inflammatory action, which are found in particular in oily fish.
