Benefits of an anti-inflammatory diet include reducing chronic inflammation, a key risk factor in a whole host of health problems. Add these delicious foods to your diet to help boost your immune system and reduce inflammation.
Avocados: Not only are these anti-inflammatory velvety fruits great smeared on toast with a dash of salt, they’re also packed with potassium, magnesium and heart-healthy fats.
Ginger: In addition to its anti-inflammatory properties, other health benefits of ginger include its ability to help lower blood sugar and reduce heart disease risk factors. Grate fresh ginger root into salad dressings, soups and stir-frys.
Blueberries: Blueberries aren’t just packed with flavour; they’re also full of quercetin, antioxidants that fights inflammation and cancer. Throw a handful onto your morning cereal or yogurt.
Nuts: Nuts like almonds and walnuts are packed with fats that reduce inflammation. Toss some back for a quick protein packed snack.
Spinach: Flavonoids as well as carotenoids are found in spinach leaves and contribute to its anti-inflammatory properties. Chop up a handful and add to any sauce, soup or stew for a quick hit of this leafy green.
