Many people wonder if an anti inflammatory diet could be of benefit to them. A number of experts believe that it is entirely possible to gain better health if people would just go on an anti-inflammation diet and stay on it for life.
In this and following articles we'll tell you just enough to help you to understand about the processes of in inflammation in the body. You will learn about foods, inflammation and solutions available.
Inflammation has been implicated as a leading cause of a number of disease processes including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, arthritis, asthma, inflammation of the bowels, cancer, allergies, and Alzheimer’s to name a few. Many dieticians and professionals within the medical profession have determined that eating an anti inflammatory diet is a key component in preventing or improving many health conditions.
An anti-inflammatory diet is one that is rich in unprocessed foods that are healthy and wholesome for the body. That might mean eating natural oatmeal with walnuts and fresh berries for breakfast, snacking on whole nuts, seeds, fresh vegetables and fruit instead of candy or cookies, and baking, poaching, broiling, or stir-frying rather than deep-frying foods.
Adding the following ingredients to your diet along with specific foods that reduce inflammation, known as anti-inflammatory foods, can create a good basis for the health improvement.
The key ingredients of this kind of diet are omega-3 fatty acids like those found in sardines, wild salmon, anchovies, herring, hemp seed, flax seed and walnuts. Included in this list of healthy fats are some olive oils, flax seed and hemp seed oils, avocado and walnut oils.
Along with being high in antioxidants which are important ingredients in any healthy diet, the antioxidants in vegetables and fruits help decrease inflammation as well. Fruits and vegetables that are high in these essential nutrients are garlic, onions, dark greens and peppers. These are among the foods that reduce inflammation because they contain ample amounts of carotenoids, vitamin E and vitamin K.
Herbs and spices like turmeric, rosemary, oregano, and ginger contain poly-phenols and bioflavonoids that help limit the production of free radicals as well as reducing inflammation. Green tea also contains these same elements for a healthy anti-inflammation diet. The old favourite coriander is a very popular anti-inflammatory herb in India.
A very potent ingredient to add to an anti-inflammatory diet is peppers or the spices that are created from them. Chili peppers of any kind contain capsaicin which inhibits the inflammatory process. The more intense fiery feeling to the pepper, the more capsaicin you will receive and the more anti-inflammatory effect you will receive.
By adding healthy proteins to the foods you eat every day, you will be creating a more effective anti-inflammation diet. Grain-fed and grass-fed beef are different in omega-3 content. It is better to eat grass-fed beef because it is a healthy addition to your anti-inflammatory diet. By the same token, factory-farmed eggs are lower in anti-inflammatory fatty acid than their counterpart the organic pasteurized variety. By reducing the saturated fat content of your diet you are making wiser protein choices.
