Top Five Anti-Inflammatory Antioxidant Rich Super Foods

Five Anti-Inflammatory Antioxidant Rich Super Foods

Inflammation can occur in any part of your body – from your prostate and bladder to your skin and nerves. There’s no part of your body that’s safe from the devastating effects of inflammation.

It is the primary catalyst to age-related diseases and ageing. According to a scientific study by the National Institute of Ageing Society, antioxidants can help lower the inflammatory markers in your body. They tested the blood of almost 3,000 people during a scientific study. The people who were on antioxidant rich diets had lower levels of inflammatory markers. So, which foods are high in antioxidants?

 

5 antioxidant rich foods

  1. Extra virgin olive oil

This oil is the secret to long life in Mediterranean culture. In addition, it provides a healthy dose of fats that lower your risk of asthma and arthritis. Furthermore, it also helps fight inflammation and protects the heart and blood vessels.

  1. Cruciferous vegetables

These vegetables are loaded with antioxidants. They include brussel sprouts, broccoli and cauliflower and are naturally detoxifying. Furthermore, they rid the body of damaging compounds that cause inflammation.

  1. Sweet potato

Sweet potatoes are complex carbohydrates that are rich in Vitamin A, fiber, Manganese, Vitamin C and Vitamin B6 which all help heal inflammation in the body.

  1. Turmeric

This yellow Asian spice is chock full of a natural anti-inflammatory compound – Curcumin. You can also find it in curry.

  1. Ginger

Ginger not only helps slow down inflammation but also controls blood sugar. So, add ginger to your tea as a way of supplementing it to your diet.
