Inflammation can be good … it helps your body fight infection and injury. But chronic inflammation can lead to weight gain and disease. Studies have found that some foods can fight inflammation.
Here are 7 such foods:
Berries provide antioxidants called anthocyanins, which reduce inflammation, boost immunity, and reduce risk of heart disease.
Fatty Fish have high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA which have anti-inflammatory effects.
Broccoli is one of the best sources of sulforaphane, an antioxidant with powerful anti-inflammatory effects.
Avocados are said to offer beneficial compounds that protect against inflammation and may reduce cancer risk.
Green Tea’s high EGCG content reduces inflammation and safeguards cells from damage that can lead to disease.
Chili Peppers and Bell Peppersare rich in quercetin, sinapic acid, ferulic acid and other antioxidants with strong anti-inflammatory effects.
Some edible mushrooms boast compounds that may decrease inflammations. Eating them raw or lightly cooked may help you reap their full anti-inflammatory potential.
Isn’t it amazing what nature provides to all of us? And isn’t it amazing how people have somehow, through the centuries, come to know that certain foods seemed to provide certain benefits. Lucky for us that more and more seems to be learned every day about the benefits we can get from food itself. Given the many benefits of foods being validated every day, it makes it even clearer how positive it is that Willard's Water has been validated in studies to significantly increase the body's assimilation of nutrients from foods, and nutritional supplements.
