In recent times, inflammation has become a booming topic at the forefront of health and wellness. It is one of the leading causes of aging and disease, however, in many cases, it is preventable. Our modern lifestyles where we increasingly suffer from chronic stress, sleep fewer hours than our bodies need and eat diets poor in nutrients anti-inflammatory, have lead to chronic inflammation in the body.

On a positive note, in order to prevent chronic inflammation in the body, we can follow an anti-inflammatory diet that helps keep the immune system strong, balances weight and keeps all the body’s system working optimally.

What does the anti-inflammatory diet consist of?

This diet focuses on eliminating the foods that cause inflammatory responses in the body, like gluten, dairy, sugar and processed foods, and replacing them for wholefoods such as vegetables, legumes, whole grains, fish and fruit.

The foods richest in anti-inflammatory vitamins you should include in your diet are:

  • Green leafy greens such as spinach and kale
  • Celery
  • Beetroot
  • Broccoli
  • Blueberries
  • Salmon
  • Walnuts
  • Coconut oil
  • Turmeric

  • Chia Seeds

As you can see, they are foods that are easy to incorporate into your diet on a daily basis. They will prevent premature aging and diseases, improve cognitive function, strengthen the immune system and boost energy levels.

Boost your health and vitality with the anti-inflammatory diet!
