6 Anti-inflammatory Powerhouses

Are you sick and tired of being sick? Clean eating can turn things around.

What are you dealing with? Persistent arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, and cancer?

Chronic diseases are linked to chronic inflammation. If you are suffering from any type of debilitating or pervasive ailment, or are attempting to manage the symptoms and medications you fear will be a part of your life forever, chronic inflammation is probably at the root of your issues. Chronic inflammation is not the inflammation you need when injury or infection occurs. Instead, your body is constantly over-producing immune cells. Chronic inflammation is a result of constant stress, obesity, or a high-sugar, trans-fat, toxic diet.

To halt excessive inflammation, eat clean foods to help reduce it, and fire up anti-inflammatory effects:

Spices and Herbs. Herbs and spices are excellent ways to add a multitude of antioxidants in your diet. Try basil, rosemary, oregano, turmeric, peppercorns, cinnamon and more to decrease the pro-inflammatory compounds on meat. For example, ginger and turmeric reduce joint pain relief.

Soy. Dietary sources of soy, like tempeh or edamame, can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Cold-Water Fish. Salmon’s carotenoids have high amounts anti-inflammatory properties due to omega-3 fatty acids. Eat salmon, black cod, sardines, and anchovies to benefit fully.

Sweet Potatoes. Vitamins C and E, and the carotenoids alpha- and beta-carotene, are contained in sweet potatoes. Vibrant skin is one of the benefits.

Walnuts. The alpha-linolenic acid (an omega-3 fatty acid) contained in walnuts reduces inflammation-related heart disease and diabetes.

Tea. Drink copious amounts of green, black, and white teas to receive free radical-fighting catechins. These elements help reduce muscle inflammation and post exercise muscle recovery.

A few committed tweaks to your diet are all it takes to put you on the path to restored health. Don’t surrender to chronic inflammation and disease. Eat clean and live well.
