Environmental toxins, low physical activity, stress and processed foods all lead to the inflammation of the body, and this is the chronic root cause of diseases such as cancer, arthritis and Alzheimer's. However, by eating anti inflammatory fruits and foods, you can protect your body against these diseases. Healthy and anti inflammatory eating can be inexpensive, tasty and fun. The following are some of the best known anti inflammatory fruits:
Blueberries are the best anti inflammatory fruits. All the other berries, such as goji berries as well have good anti inflammatory properties. Apart from being very nutritious, berries are low in sugar, hence this is the reason why they are the best anti inflammatory fruits. Berries have a larger surface area; this means that they have lots pf phenolics and antioxidants. Due to their colorful nature, berries have a lot of bioactive pigments.
Who would have imagined that pineapples would have good anti inflammatory properties? Pineapples are rich in an ingredient called bromelain. This ingredient has been used for centuries to treat digestive disorders. It has been discovered that pineapples can help sooth pain and inflammation that arises from gout, arthritis and muscular injuries. Taking bromelain supplements reduces tissue swelling resulting from arthritis, with very few side effects. Your diet should therefore be rich in pineapples so that you are protected from diseases.
Tart cherries are among the best anti inflammatory fruits. They are rich in anthocyanins. This is compound that acts very similarly to prescription medications. They act by blocking the Cox-2 and Cox-1 enzymes that are associated with inflammation. They are natural and have low concentration of sugar, hence have very few side effects. Drinking cherry juice reduces the inflammation and pain associated with muscle injury resulting from exercises. Tart cherries also reduce markers which are associated with blood stream inflammation. Ensure that the juice you drink has no artificial sugar.
