Joint pain, often nutritional relationship

  1. When you have pain in your knee or suffer from arthrosis, rheumatism, fibromyalgia or gout you may not immediately think about your diet, but often your diet is the cause of the complaints.

These complaints say something about your general health.

Incorrect power supply

  1. With incorrect nutrition you have to think of a lot of sugars, sugar substitutes, soft drinks, processed food full of artificial additives, burnt food (also think of black crusts on bread, for example), but also drink too little, which means waste products are not excreted properly.

Consequences of incorrect nutrition

In rheumatoid arthritis (to name just one example), damage to the cells of the synovial tissue (tissue that is located on the inside of the joint capsule) starts to proliferate, leading to inflammation, pain and eventually damage to the joint.

Movement for joint complaints

The presence of vitamin D promotes the absorption of dietary calcium in the intestines.
