Getting started is as easy as incorporating anti-inflammatory foods into your diet. Fortunately, the list of foods that fight the effects of chronic inflammation is long—and tasty.
Decrease Your Chronic “Joint” Inflammation with These
“3 Anti-Inflammatory Superfoods”
Here are the Top 3 picks from our new publication, 101 Superfoods that Stop Your Joint Pain & Inflammation.
1. Green Tea
Green Tea is one of the world’s most popular beverages. It is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on the body, including improved brain function, fat loss, a lower risk of cancer and inflammation-fighting properties.
Green tea is also the least processed of all the predominant types of tea: green, black and oolong. (page 40)
A 2009 study found that bioactive compounds in pistachio, and molecules present in pistachios, have anti-inflammatory properties.
Pistachio oil decreases levels of an inflammatory marker known as “lift-2.” Pistachios are nutrient dense and provide protein, fiber micronutrients, plant sterols, gamma-tocopherol and other phytochemical compounds, including flavanoids and phenolic compounds. Overall, they are an excellent weapon in the war against chronic “joint” inflammation. (page 36)
The Kiwifruit is a small fruit approximately 3 inches long and weighing about four ounces. Kiwi provides your daily intake of antioxidants such as polyphenols and carotenoids which help fight damage caused by oxidative stress and free radicals.
Kiwifruit is also known to assist in wading off the effects of stress, joint inflammation and attack from viruses and bacteria. (page 29)
