Eating Tips to Lower Inflammation

Eating Tips to Lower Inflammation

A body of evidence suggests that what you put on your plate can have an impact on inflammation. There is a lot you can do to reduce chronic inflammation and lower your risk of developing chronic diseases as you age.

  • Eat a variety of foods. Instead of sticking to a routine diet, try making it diverse in order to provide a rainbow of nutrients and anti-inflammatory compounds.
  • Avoid processed foods. Instead of filling up on processed, refined foods like chips, crackers and cookies, power up on whole foods the way they are found in nature, such as nuts or apples.
  • Fill up on fruits and vegetables. Scientists are just beginning to get a grip on the thousands of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds found in fruits and vegetables, and how they can protect you against disease.
  • Keep calories under control in order to maintain an optimal weight.
  • Choose healthy carbs that are less refined (think whole grains, legumes, fruits and vegetables) with an emphasis on low-glycemic index, high fiber sources.
  • Cut back on animal proteins, except for fish. Try to include more sources of plant proteins like legumes, soy and nuts in your diet and rely on omega-3 rich fish more often.
  • Choose healthy fats. Instead of consuming high amounts of polyunsaturated oils found in processed foods; focus on monounsaturated fats from extra virgin olive oil, nuts and avocados. Minimize saturated fat and avoid trans fat.
  • Increase intake of omega-3 fatty acids. Include more plant sources of omega-3s such as walnuts and flax, as well as fish sources.
  • Drink more tea, which has been linked to lower levels of inflammation.
  • Enjoy red wine in moderation, if you consume alcohol. (Don't start if you don't.)
  • Choose small amounts of antioxidant rich dark chocolate as a treat as long as it contains a minimum of 70 percent dark chocolate.
  • Flavor your foods generously with antioxidant spices and herbs such as ginger, turmeric, garlic and green herbs.
  • Push your fiber intake by eating more whole grains, legumes, nuts, vegetables and fruits.
  • Try Nopal. We are hearing more and more glowing reports for a natural aid to pain and inflammation with Nopal Juice.
