The antioxidizing agents found in vegetables and fruits are a great source of preventing inflammation – but do you think that drinking orange juice, cranberry juice, and mango juice have the same value?

According to the expert, too much sugar leads to weight gain and blood sugar spikes.

Increased Blood sugar makes arthritis symptoms worse, the dietician warned – and it could also lead to diabetes and some cancers.

“Drink juices made up of 80 percent vegetables and 20 percent fruits to limit sugars,” recommends Dietician Ashley Harris.

According to the specialist, you should make your own fruit juice at home with the help of a blender.

Harris further adds: you should also “pair your juice with protein, such as nuts or Greek yoghurt, to help control your blood sugar”.

And people who are on high blood pressure medicines, should not drink grapefruit juice as it is known to interact with blood pressure and some arthritis medicines.

Orange, tomato, pineapple and carrot juices are all high in the antioxidant, vitamin C, which can neutralise free radicals that lead to inflammation.

Tart cherry juice has been shown to protect against gout flares and reduce OA symptoms.

However, as the exert highlights, fruit juice can be high in sugar and calories.

What should you drink for arthritis

An another Dietician Sonya Angelone says:

Start every day with a glass of water before you eat any food.

The best drink for arthritis is water, as it’s vital for flushing toxins out of the body, helping to fight inflammation.

Adequate water intake can help keep your joints well lubricated and prevent gout attacks.

But if you’re not a fan of sipping water all day, what else can you drink?

Green, black and white teas are all rich in polyphenols – compounds from plants that have strong anti-inflammatory effects.

Green tea is the best because of its active ingredient epigallocatechin 3-gallate (EGCG) – a type of polyphenol.

EGCG has been shown to be as much as 100 times stronger in antioxidant activity than vitamins C and E.

As tea contains caffeine, this beverage is best consumed in moderation and is not advised before bedtime.

So, what other options are there? According to experts, smoothies could be a bonus for their fibre content.
