Anti-inflammatory Foods - Ηow to avoid inflammations and how to remedy them

Having explained what inflammation is, we will try to give you a brief list of what the foods that prevent inflammation (anti-inflammatory foods) are and what foods we should not eat.

It certainly takes more time and patience for us to help our body restore its normal status since an inflammation appears. There are, of course, anti-inflammatory drugs but they all cause so many side effects (obvious and hidden) that they should be our last option.

Moreover, when we have to treat a specific inflammation we should very carefully choose the suitable anti-inflammatory remedy (and surely not drugs) in order to have the greatest outcome.

For example, if we try to help our  liver then the best choice is the Milk Thistle (we have gone into more detail in a past article) and especially in the form of a vegetable capsule, thus standardised and with guaranteed power.

Generally speaking, if we want to avoid all kinds of body inflammations, we shouldn’t consume, sugar, white flour, refined salt, all processed foods, meat (especially red meat) and dairies from cow's milk.

The main anti-inflammatory foods are: Turmeric (we have gone into more detail in a past article), because although it is an extremely important anti-inflammatory substance we should take into
account some of its equally important particularities.
- Ginger
- Olive oil (up to 2 tablespoons per day)
- Dark chocolate (at least 80% cocoa)
- Fat small fish (sardines, mackerel, etc.)
- Almonds
- Walnuts
- Red apples
- Pineapple
- Garlic
- Onion
- Cinnamon
- Berries
- Green vegetables
- Eggs
- Red grapes (red wine, 1 glass a day)
- Green tea (very important, 2 cups a day)
- Cherries
- Oregano
- Hypericum perforatum
- Vitamin C (a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory vitamin)
