PostSubject: 7 Best Anti-Inflammatory Foods   Sun Feb 21, 2016 12:43 pm



Inflammation is a mechanism that shows that our body is fighting an infection. When an area is damaged by trauma or infected by a microorganism, it becomes inflamed and the body sends reinforcements like white blood cells and leukocytes to fight the infection. However, inflammation is damaging if left unresolved – and most often than not, medications have more side effects than is worth the pain they alleviate. But you can always turn the natural way to solve inflammation! Include the following in your diet and watch your inflammation subside without adverse effects.

1. Mushrooms


A favorite addition to soup, stir fry, and pasta, mushrooms have shown very potent anti-inflammatory activity when kept in their raw forms. A study by Gunawardena in 2014 revealed that White Button, Honey Brown, Shiitake, Enoki, and Oyster mushrooms were all promising on the anti-inflammatory front, inhibiting nitric oxide production, whose properties were lost during heating and cooking.

2 – Omega-3 fatty acids






You will often hear omega-3s as a healthy addition to your diet, primarily in improving cardiovascular health. But what exactly are omega-3 fatty acids? They are a naturally-occurring substance usually found in fish like tuna and salmon and have the ability to relieve chronic inflammation. They can be used to fight inflammation of blood vessels found in heart disease and inflammation of respiratory passages found in asthma and similar allergic conditions. [2] [3]

Sources of omega-3s: fresh tuna, salmon, halibut, herring, mackerel, oysters, sardines, trout, brussel sprouts, kale, mint, parsley, spinach, watercress

3 – Leafy greens








Leafy green vegetables like spinach, collard greens, and kale are rich in a variety of anti-oxidants and nutrients that help fight cellular damage. These properties make them an excellent addition to your diet in fighting inflammatory conditions like heart and metabolic disease and nutrition deficiencies. The nitrate content of leafy green vegetables even have direct effects on the body’s blood vessels, able to alleviate the symptoms of hypertension and cardiac problems.






4 – Berries








Berries are not just delicious and full of vitamins, they have specific properties that help reduce inflammation in the body. Because they are chock-full of antioxidants like polyphenols, they can battle the most common effects of chronic disease in humans – widespread or generalized inflammation.






5 – Tea








Tea has been touted as the healthier alternative to coffee and energy drinks, able to boost alertness with added antioxidant properties. However, its benefits also include an ability to improve inflammation, particularly in mobility and metabolic diseases. Two recently published studies have shown tea to reduce inflammation found in subjects with diabetes and arthritis. 






6 – Fermented food








Fermented food has developed a bad reputation in the US but it is a well-loved inclusion in most Asian countries’ fares. In fact, it has been well documented in recent research that fermented food is able to fight inflammation in heart disease, diabetes, chronic skin disease, and even neurologic disease. If anything, fermentation boots the benefits of a particular food product, making it healthier for consumption.






7 – Garlic








The last item on this list is a no-brainer – garlic. Famous for its ability to battle chronic cardiovascular conditions, garlic’s cardioprotective powers lie in its high antioxidant content which fights vascular inflammation. Most heart and vascular conditions stem from chronic inflammation of the body’s blood vessels, which can become blocked or rupture. Raw or cooked, garlic is one of the strongest anti-inflammatory foods you can include in your diet.
