Foods That Are Anti Inflammatory And Fight Inflammation Without Drugs

Inflammation, in simple terms, is our body's way of informing us that there is something wrong. This could come about due to the introduction of pathogens or even some stimuli in our bodies. Ideally, this helps our bodies get better. However if our bodies react, inflaming on existing inflammation, a simple irritation ends up swelling and producing pus. This could be irritating and painful, especially in the form of arthritis. Other than the use of drugs, foods that are anti inflammatory help manage an inflammation.

Adding olive oil, avocado oil or even grape seed oil to your diet enables you to get to your meal's nutrients faster. These oils go well with salads, not to mention makes you salad taste great. They are good at reducing inflammation as they contain compounds such as oleic acid, which is an omega-9 fatty acid that helps your body fight off inflammation.

Eating fish instead of beef, also works in eliminating inflammation. Beef contains more salt and cholesterol, which is a big no-no when dealing with inflammation. Foods that are anti inflammatory, such as fish, have high levels of omega-3 fatty acid, which fends off inflammation as well, not to mention, a great source of protein. This includes fish like tuna and bass. Chicken, which is also a white meat, should be taken, as it is leaner than beef?

Increasing your fibre intake also, helps reduce inflammation. Consuming whole grains, which are a good source of foods that are anti-inflammatory instead of refined grain products that mostly have added sugar. This keeps the C-reactive protein at bay. Instead of refined sugars, increase fruits in your diet, by eating a few between meals. These include pineapples, apples, strawberries and almost any fruit you fancy. These go well with nuts such as walnuts and almonds. These too increase the omega-3 fat, alphalinolenic acid and vitamin-E.

To improve your diet, also increase the amount of green vegetables you eat. Vegetables like kale and spinach have sufficient levels of vitamin-E, to fight off inflammatory causing molecules. They are also beneficial in addition of calcium and iron which are necessary minerals in your body.

Talk of great tasting cures and you are definitely talking about chocolate. Chocolate with 70% cocoa falls under the category of foods that are anti-inflammatory, has less harmful fats, and would be a great way of fighting inflammation.

Other than foods that are anti inflammatory, one should in addition watch their body weight. Maintaining the right weight for your height is a more natural approach to combating inflammation such as in the case of arthritis. Studies have also shown that practicing yoga helps fight inflammation. Yoga goes a long way in reducing interleukin-6, which is an inflammation marker.

In short, keep off foods that are not anti inflammatory such as those containing added sugar or/and saturated fats, as these increase inflammation in your body. If you think your food should now taste like an invalids meal, well think again. Adding garlic, ginger and tasty herbs such as oregano, chili, parsley, thyme, and spices such as turmeric have been proven to fight inflammation too. I am suddenly craving for pan-fried fish, in all these herbs and nuts.
