    Few people are familiar with the term nightshades, and many will be surprised to learn that consuming foods from this plant group may be contributing to their pain and inflammation.

    Nightshades belong to the Solanaceae family which includes over 2,000 species. They also include some of the most popular foods consumed today; such as tomatoes, potatoes, all types of peppers, and eggplant. Although not truly nightshades, blueberries, huckleberries, goji berries and ashwaganda all share the same alkaloids which may have inflammation-inducing properties.

    I'm so ignorant, I had thought that everyone knew this about the nightshades. What I did not know was that ashwagandha shares these properties.

    Maurya, I think sometimes people read a few disparaging words and stop there, because they don't want to know.
