Have joint pain? Watch what you drink!
If your arthritis is acting up or you’re having more and more aches and pains, the culprit could be in your glass or cup. Soda, coffee and tea all contain tannic acid, which is harmful to your joints; and alcohol can also cause a flare up. Want a natural way to deal with flare-ups? Garlic has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties that can ease joint pressure. And if it’s your knees that are giving you trouble, remember that for every one pound of weight you lose, there is a four pound decrease in pressure on each knee.
