Why are they called nightshade

Clint @NJClint

The Solanaceae, or nightshades, are an economically important family of flowering plants. The family ranges from annual and perennial herbs to vines, lianas, epiphytes, shrubs, and trees, and includes a number of important agricultural crops, medicinal plants, spices, weeds, and ornamentals. Many members of the family contain potent alkaloids, and some are highly toxic, but many, including tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, bell/chili peppers, and tobacco are widely used. The family belongs to the order Solanales, in the asterid group and class Magnoliopsida (dicotyledons).[2] The Solanaceae consists of about 98 genera and some 2,700 species,[3] with a great diversity of habitats, morphology and ecology.

White potatoes, eggplant, tomatoes, and peppers, both the eye-watering chilies and the sweeter bell peppers,. The list of edible nightshade plants also includes any spices made from peppers, like paprika, red pepper flakes, and cayenne pepper (although black pepper is a different plant). 😊

Alright plain English version

Md @md

Did anybody reacted badly with Okra? Others nightshade are bad trigger but Okra may be not a trigger food.

Jen @jen1984

We all react differently to foods therefore if you want to find out what triggers your p an elimination diet works.

Sarah @sarahuk

Hey Md! I'm ok with okra.

Jenny @jenny8685

I cut out nightshades for six months but sadly made no difference to my psoriasis.

It can take a year to see difference with diet/lifestyle, we are all different have different triggers. in winter diet dosnt make too much difference though my arthritis is good and nails. its good to eat healthy most of the time any way i think,.i think i get less flaking though aswel as arthritis improvement :)

I have since February started on a chuckling goat diet and although I have yet to see any improvement of my skin I feel so much better in myself . I take goats Kefir daily which really does curb my sweet cravings which was a problem for me . Hopefully will start to see skin improvements soon but have been told it could take a year .
