Inflammation is the body's response to injury or foreign invasion from viral threats and bacteria. Inflammation has also been linked to all sort of serious health issues, like diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and even dementia. Inflammation that occurs due to injury and sickness are somewhat unavoidable. But inflammation can also be caused by the stuff we might be eating every day, like refined sugars and processed carbohydrates -- both of which are being shown to increase your chances of getting one of the diseases mentioned above and more.
Below are few foods to start incorporating into your diet in order to life a happier, healthier life.
Blueberries are packed with antioxidants that help fight free radicals and reduce inflammation in the body.
Spinach and leafy greens are the cornerstones of any healthy diet. Spinach, in particular, is loaded with inflammation-fighting agents, not to mention healthy vitamins that will help balance out your diet.
Turmeric is only now being understood for its many health benefits, including its anti-inflammatory capabilities. You can put turmeric powder in your soup, smoothies, coffee, and more!
