Joint pain and inflammation. The effects of sugar on the body

Most of us consume far more sugar than we really should. Beyond weight gain, you might be feeling sugars effects without realising it's the culprit. Fatigue, stress, irritability, mood swings, difficulty sleeping and joint pain can all be attributed to sugar.

There is a direct connection between sugar, inflammation and joint pain. Inflammation is the immune system's healthy response to restore the affected area to normal following an injury, irritation or infection. However, in response to high sugar intake, which includes simple carbohydrates, the body is flooded with insulin and stress hormones. These inundate your blood supply triggering the inflammation process which creates stress and pain on your organs and joints. The less sugar you eat, the less inflammation you will experience, and the stronger your immune system will be to protect you from infectious and degenerative diseases.

Many things can lead to chronic joint pain, but more often than not, inflammation is the cause with sugars being its greatest antagonist. The pain you feel in your stiff, achy joints is your body's way of letting you know that inflammation exists. Instead of turning to side-effect laden pain medications and over-the-counter pills, listen to the message your pain is sending. It's time to reduce your intake of sugars and provide your body with what it needs both nutritionally and topically to reduce inflammation and function properly. Your long-term wellness depends on it.

Beyond joint pain, the typical, high-in-sugar, inflammation causing diet can easily be associated with an increase of atherosclerosis, cancer, obesity, diabetes, congestive heart failure, digestive system diseases, arthritis, Alzheimer's disease and osteoporosis in our society. Sugar also contributes to premature aging in adults and behavior problems in children. Staying away from sugar and simple carbohydrates is one of the best ways to decrease inflammation and improve your overall health and well being.
