Nightshade Vegetables: Good or Bad for health?
Nightshade vegetables are a kind of vegetable that belongs to the Solanaceae family. These include tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, and peppers.
Nightshades can worsen arthritis and other health disorders. However, there is no good scientific evidence to back up this assertion.
Most nightshade vegetables are high in antioxidants, which aid in detoxification. Anthocyanin is an antioxidant that gives eggplant its purple colour and lowers your chances of acquiring cancer and diabetes.
Tomatoes contain lycopene, an antioxidant that reduces the risk of certain heart illnesses and malignancies.
Solanine is an alkaloid present in potatoes that causes them to glow green when exposed to light. Green potatoes are hazardous, hence destroy them immediately.
On the other hand, other vegetables do not contain any such toxicity and will not hurt you in any manner. Vegetables such as eggplant and tomatoes may contain trace amounts of alkaloids, which are not hazardous to the human body unless consumed in excessive numbers.
