5 anti-inflammatory foods you should add to your diet immediately!

Have you heard of the anti-inflammatory diet but aren’t sure what foods to eat or how to prepare it? To get you started, here’s a list for 5 anti-inflammatory foods you can easily add to your diet today!

Foods that have been proven to lower inflammation in the body are known as anti-inflammatory foods. They’re single substances that nearly all doctors and nutritionists believe we should consume more of. If you have an autoimmune disease, diabetes, heart disease, gut issues, or any other inflammatory condition, increasing your consumption of these basic foods is a good idea.

“Inflam-what” food?

Sugar, refined carbs, industrial seed oils, alcohol, red meat, and processed foods (soda, burgers, chips, etc.) are examples of inflammatory foods.

Single ingredients that are raw and unadulterated in any manner are anti-inflammatory foods. They’re the best of nature, and they’ve been well researched for their nutritional worth as well as their beneficial effects on the immune system, cardiovascular system, and our bodies and brains in general.

1. Berries and lots of them

Anthocyanins are antioxidants found in berries; strawberries, blueberries, raspberries & blackberries. These antioxidants have anti-inflammatory properties, which may lower your illness risk. Natural killer cells are produced by your body and aid in the normal functioning of your immune system. Men who ate blueberries every day produced considerably more NK cells than those who did not, according to one study.

2. Leafy Green Vegetables

We’re sure you’re aware that leafy greens are beneficial to your health, but do you know why? Antioxidants abound in spinach, kale, Swiss chard, arugula, dandelion greens, and other leafy greens, which are also alkalizing to the body. They’re chock-full of vitamins and minerals, including folate, fiber, vitamins A, C, E, and K, as well as a range of minerals.

3. Fatty Fish – Say yes salmon, sardines and anchovies!

Protein and the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are abundant in fatty fish. EPA and DHA help to prevent metabolic syndrome, heart disease, diabetes, and renal disease by reducing inflammation. These fatty acids are metabolized by your body into anti-inflammatory chemicals called resolvins and protectins. Consider adding ground chia or flax seeds to a salad or a smoothie for breakfast if you don’t eat meat and are vegetarian or vegan.

4. Broccoli Broccoli Broccoli

Broccoli, like cauliflower and Brussels sprouts, and other cruciferous vegetables, are high in antioxidants, vitamins, and phytochemicals. Broccoli is high in vitamin K, vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, and fiber, but the sulforaphane is what sets it apart.

One of the most researched chemicals in broccoli is sulforaphane. It has been demonstrated to have anti-cancer properties and to detoxify toxic substances in the environment that would otherwise cause inflammation in our bodies.

Turmeric, the spice of life and health!

Turmeric’s main element, curcumin, has a wide range of biological activities. Turmeric is recommended for a number of health concerns by Ayurvedic medicine, an ancient Indian system of treatment. Chronic pain and inflammation are two of them. Turmeric is being studied in Western medicine as a pain reliever and healing agent. Turmeric doesn’t absorb well […]

5. Turmeric – the spice of life!

Turmeric can help with arthritis, diabetes, and other conditions by reducing inflammation. In fact, in persons with metabolic syndrome, taking 1 gram of curcumin daily with piperine from black pepper resulted in a considerable reduction in the inflammatory marker CRP.

However, it may be difficult to obtain enough curcumin from turmeric alone to produce a visible benefit. In one trial, women who took 2.8 grams of turmeric per day for weight loss showed no change in inflammatory markers.

It is far more effective to take solitary curcumin pills. Piperine (which is found in Black Pepper), which can increase curcumin absorption by 2,000 percent, is frequently coupled with curcumin supplements.

Watch out for the bad foods!

It’s crucial to restrict your intake of foods that can cause inflammation, in addition to stocking your diet with beneficial anti-inflammatory nutrients. Meanwhile, trans fats, a form of unsaturated fatty acid associated to heightened inflammation, are found in fried foods and partially hydrogenated oils.

Remember, chronic inflammation, even at modest levels, can lead to disease, so choose a wide selection of delectable, antioxidant-rich meals to help keep inflammation at bay.
