Anti-inflammatory diet

What is anti-inflammatory diet?

It is a type of diet that aims to reduce inflammation in the body, especially chronic inflammation.

Inflammation is a natural response of the body when it defends itself against injury, infection or other threats. It is an important part of our defense mechanism. But chronic inflammation, which lasts for a long time without any clear threat, can be harmful and linked to a range of health problems.

Here are some basic principles of an anti-inflammatory diet:

  1. Fruit and vegetables: Eat a variety of fruits and vegetables because they are rich in antioxidants and other nutrients that can reduce inflammation. Dark leafy greens, berries, and colorful vegetables like tomato, carrot, and broccoli are good options. Make smoothies with some of them our superfood mixes for a good start to the day.

  2. Fish: Include fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel and sardines in your diet. These are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which have anti-inflammatory properties.

  3. Useful fats: Use the right type of fat, such as olive oil, avocados and nuts, instead of saturated and trans fats found in processed and fast foods.

  4. Whole grains: Choose whole grains such as quinoa, brown rice and oats instead of refined carbohydrates such as white bread and white rice.

  5. Low or no sugar: Avoid excessive intake of sugar and sugary drinks, as sugar can increase inflammation in the body.

  6. Spices and herbs: Use spices and herbs that have anti-inflammatory properties, such as ginger, turmeric and garlic. Recipe tip is our Mellow Yellow with turmeric, ginger and Berry Beautiful.

  7. Reduce red meat and processed foods: Reduce your intake of red meat and processed foods such as hot dogs and bacon, as they can increase inflammation.

  8. Antioxidant-rich drinks: Green tea and matcha tea are rich in antioxidants and have been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. Our superfood mix Berry Beautiful is full of antioxidants, which can help you bmaintain the normal function of the immune system.

What not to eat to reduce the risk of chronic inflammation in your body:

  • Carbohydrates such as bread, white pasta, cakes and biscuits.
  • trans fats, a type of unsaturated fatty acid
  • Dairy products
  • Coffee and tea (not green tea)
  • Sugar
  • Soda
  • Alcohol

It's important to remember that an anti-inflammatory diet is part of a healthy lifestyle that also includes regular exercise, adequate sleep, and stress management. If you have specific health problems or medical needs, you should consult a doctor.
