Foods that Fight Inflammation

The Nutritious Noodle

Inflammation is a normal bodily function that occurs when you are injured or you have an illness, such as arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, IBD or other common diseases. Inflammation has been shown to be the root cause of these diseases and many more. Evidence has shown that dietary patterns rich in foods of plant origin, such as fruits and vegetables, can help lower the risk of diseases.

Inflammation is not necessarily bad for the body, since it helps protect the body from illnesses and is the bodies way of healing. You may notice that the area of injury will swell, as well as become hot and red. This is the immune systems response to injury. However, if the immune system overreaches to illnesses or injuries, it may cause autoimmune disorders, causing arthritis or IBD.

Eating a diet rich in anti-inflammatory foods can help promote a healthy inflammatory response.
