Reduce acid foods – most importantly if you want to keep joints healthy or reduce pain from inflamed / damaged joints you need to reduce your intake of acidic foods. Stay clear of tomatoes, citrus fruits, strawberries and other berries, tea, coffee, red meat and fizzy drinks. These foods encourage the body to produce uric acid and that can make painful joints hurt more!
