What is inflammation and how does food affect it? Scroll down to learn what it means for your health.
Inflammation occurs when your body reacts to a problem, such as an infection or injury. It’s a normal, healthy response to signal your immune system to fight off the infection or heal the injury. Chronic inflammation is another story. It’s a response by your immune system that sticks around long after the infection or injury. Instigators include an unhealthy diet, exercise avoidance, stress and lack of sleep. This is what can cause damage to your body. Many major diseases – heart disease, stroke, arthritis, diabetes – have been linked to chronic inflammation.
One of the best tools to help fight inflammation is by eating a diet high in anti-inflammatory foods. A Mediterranean diet that is high in fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, fish, and healthy oils is one of the best diets to follow.
A diet full of nutrient rich foods and with less processed foods is backed by science. It’s important for reducing chronic diseases and improving mood and overall quality of life.
