My awareness of nightshades has been transformative for healing my Hashimoto’s and getting my gut health and inflammation under control, and that’s why I’m sharing it with you!
List of Inflammatory Nightshade Vegetables & Fruits
Nightshades belong to the Solanaceae family and include thousands of edible and inedible plants.
Here are the common nightshade:
- Tomatoes: All varieties
- Potatoes: White and red potatoes, but not sweet potatoes
- Peppers: Bell peppers, chili peppers, and any red spices
- Goji berries
Are Nightshades Inflammatory for everyone? Why would you want to avoid them?
Not necessarily. Nightshades do have a lot of nutrient density on their own and can be a healthy part of a balanced diet for many. By no means would I ever suggest that the human race as a whole needs to go nightshade free!
However, nightshades are known to be inflammatory for many and can flare up joint issues, digestive symptoms, and other inflammatory diseases. Those with the following conditions are certain groups of people that may have nightshade issues…
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Any joint issues
- Digestive issues or “IBS”
- Autoimmune disease (hashimoto’s, graves, etc.)
Have one of these conditions but don’t feel like you have nightshade issues? I was in the same boat. I didn’t particularly feel a difference when I ate tomatoes, so why would I avoid them?
Not having an obvious reaction to an inflammatory food is common, and doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not inflammatory for you. What can happen is that our body can be so inflamed that we just don’t notice the nuances anymore. That’s why elimination diets like the autoimmune protocol are the gold standard for nailing down food intolerance as they allow your body the chance to anti-inflame so you can actually determine whether or not you have a reaction when you reintroduce the food.
What do nightshade intolerance symptoms look like?
Everyone is different and your symptoms will vary. But typically, you can look out for these symptoms…
- Joint pain
- Skin flares
- Digestive distress
- Flares to any preexisting conditions
