Nightshade Vegetables

Nightshade vegetables contain chemistry that may be causing you pain. Elimination of the nightshade family from your diet may improve your health.

Nightshade Vegetables

Nightshade vegetables are a family of flowering plants that contain a number of  plants referred to as the nightshade family. In the nightshades, a particular type of chemistry in these foods, called alkaloids, can cause symptoms involving nerve-muscle function and digestive function as well as pain in joints. Health problems from nightshade foods may only occur in individuals who are especially sensitive to these alkaloid substances.

The members of the nightshade family are potatoes, tomatoes, sweet and hot peppers, eggplant, regular peppers, paprika, tobacco and cayenne pepper. Note that the nightshade foods of paprika and cayenne contain Capsicum, so certain hot spices such as Tabasco sauce will also contain capsicum and should be avoided if you suspect health related issues from the nightshade vegetables.

Interestingly, many people with arthritis in particular, and also other pain syndromes (especially muscle pain), rheumatoid arthritis and gout or gastrointestinal complaints may benefit from avoidance of nightshade vegetables.

Effective treatment for any of the above health conditions usually requires more than eliminating nightshade vegetables from your diet. There is strong evidence that the health of the gastrointestinal system is also involved.
