An introduction to a diet that includes anti inflammatory fruits
Chronic inflammation can be greatly alleviated if you will stick to an anti inflammatory diet that includes anti inflammatory fruits. Just make sure that you will choose fruits that contain less sugar though, since sugar can also trigger inflammation.
What you need to know about chronic inflammation
It cannot be denied that chronic inflammation is the major cause of several illnesses today, including Alzheimer's disease, heart diseases and cancer. The inflammation process on the surface of your body is manifested by heat, redness, pain and swelling. It is basically the healing response of your body. On the other hand, once the inflammation persists or has no useful purpose, it can damage your body and can lead to an illness. Lack of exercise, stress, exposure to toxins and genetic predisposition are contributing factors to chronic inflammation, but your dietary choices also have a big role. Foods that are rich in sugar, saturated fat and are highly processed can trigger inflammation. These foods have the potential to drive your immune system to an overactive phase, thus leading to fatigue, joint pain and even damage to your blood vessels.
Anti inflammatory diet - the right fruits to eat
You no longer need to suffer from diseases caused by chronic inflammation anymore. All you have to do is to stick with the anti inflammatory diet which is considered easy, tasty and inexpensive.
In studies conducted, it was discovered that dark colored fruits have anti inflammatory benefits. It is beneficial to other organ systems aside from your heart as well as your memory. Two fruits worth including in your diet are acai berry and pomegranates.

Similar fruits include black raspberries, black cherries, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, passion fruit, black currants, red/purple-black grapes and varieties of plum. These fruits can provide you with anti inflammatory effects, heart protection, cancer prevention and health promotion effects.
