Inflammation is a natural process of the body. It's the body's way of healing but at times it gets out of hand and brings negative effects. It can happen in any part of the body and internal inflammation is quite tricky to deal with. Owing to the fact that the world is in support of natural remedies, anti inflammatory vegetables are the best way to go.
The benefit of vegetables over anti inflammatory drugs is that they have no side effects. The possible side effects of anti inflammatory drugs are stomach and gut bleeding due to the chemicals used, nausea and drowsiness.
Here are some powerful anti inflammatory vegetables:
The best candidates in this category are kale and spinach. These two have a high content of vitamin E which has been proven to help the body fight pro inflammatory molecules. Spinach has often been referred to as a soothing agent due to its nutrient content that soothes a lot of ailments in the body. They are also rich in magnesium which is a powerful anti inflammation tool. Others in this list include celery, lettuce, bok choy and cabbage. Science proves that the darker options of spinach and kale are stronger at fighting inflammation than the lighter options of cabbage and celery.
Broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cauliflower top this list. They have a rich compound called sulforaphane which reduces colonic and arterial inflammation. They also contain antioxidants that neutralize free radicals which aggravate inflammation. The sulfur content is the best tool since it helps the body create its own antioxidants.
People tend to forget this group of vegetables in their list yet they use them every day. This group contains anti inflammatory vegetables such as onions and ginger. For starters, ginger has always been known for its pain relieving properties. Onions contain sulfur that aids in production of antioxidants in the body. The good thing with these root veggies is that they can easily be incorporated in other foods.
Natural inflammation remedies are as simple as these anti inflammatory vegetables. One should consume at least one vegetable every day for faster recovery.
