7 ANTI-INFLAMMATORY FOODS TO EAT EVERY DAY FOR LONG-TERM HEALTH

 7 Anti-inflammatory foods to eat every day for long-term health


Inflammation refers to your body's natural process of expelling potentially harmful substances (injury, disease, or toxins) in an attempt to heal itself. When something damages our cells, we release chemicals that trigger a response from our immune system, including antibiotics, proteins, and increased blood flow to the damaged area. In the case of severe inflammation (such as a bruise or swelling from an injury), it does not last more than a few days.
 
However, chronic inflammation occurs when our body's "fending off" response continues to keep us on constant alert. And it's no secret that it can harm our health: chronic diseases are linked to various diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, depression, arthritis, and Alzheimer's disease.
 
The good news is that we can fight chronic inflammation with food. Instead of focusing on all the obvious foods (sugar, soda, refined carbs, alcohol, red meat, and processed foods), let's focus on the delicious things you can eat to reduce inflammation.

vegetables

 Leafy greens like Swiss chard, spinach and kale and cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts have powerful anti-inflammatory effects that reduce certain levels in the body that cause inflammation. Credit again, add avocado to the mixture (it also has the benefits of compounds that protect against inflammation). Chili peppers contain some compounds, such as capsaicin, which can also reduce inflammation, as well as raw or lightly cooked mushrooms.

Berries
 
Berries like acai, strawberries, and blueberries are full of antioxidants that can reduce inflammation and boost immunity. Prepare them in healthy smoothies, mix them with oatmeal, or try preparing an acai bowl. 

Fish and nuts
 
When it comes to fighting inflammation, omega-3 fatty acids are where it's at. Salmon and sardines may stand out to you as sources of omega-3, but nuts and seeds are also packed with anti-inflammatory benefits. Add hemp seeds, flax seeds, almonds and walnuts to your diet to help reduce inflammation. You can add them to your breakfast plate or sprinkle the seeds on salads or roasted vegetables.

Turmeric

Turmeric contains a powerful substance called curcumin, which makes turmeric grow. It has great anti-inflammatory benefits. Go beyond the golden latte and add this spicy snack to soups, grain dishes, and salad dressings. 

Pro tip: Add freshly ground black pepper to increase the absorption of turmeric.

Ginger  

Ginger helps reduce inflammation by reducing the body's production of cytokines, proteins that cause chronic inflammation. Ginger is also a natural remedy for an upset stomach. Serve with steamed vegetables, fish or make into cookies.
