Foods That Can Decrease Inflammation and Boost Your Immune System


Inflammation

Inflammation can become a very bothersome and painful thing to deal with. Some people will just wait for the inflammation to decrease naturally, while others have serious medical problems that cause frequent inflammation that is often very painful. Either way, most people do not enjoy this inflammation, but are unaware that there are natural and fairly simple ways to help decrease symptoms. However, I would just like to say that in some serious cases, only medication will be helpful. Consult with your doctor about the severity of your condition.

In order to fight inflammation you should try eating foods that are high in omega-3 fatty acids. These acids help your body produce hormones to lessen your inflammation. Some of the best sources of Omega-3 fatty acids are in coldwater fish, such as wild salmon, sardines, trout and mackerel. There are also some plants that are reasonably good sources of omega-3. If you’re not the fish-eating type (my dad and sister) try having some walnuts, flaxseed or canola oil.


Immune System

Obviously being sick isn’t something many of us strive for. That’s why a healthy immune system is so important. Our immune system help protect us against illness by destroying things like harmful bacteria and viruses. However, we have to take care of our immune system if we want it to take care of us.

There are many foods that can help us boost our immune system. Garlic is one of the best. For a very long time (think ancient Egypt) garlic has been revered for its healthy benefits. Green tea is also a great, simple thing to add to a meal, like dinner, to help protect against all those things looking to make you sick. Green tea has also been linked to cancer-prevention. Additionally, broccoli is an extremely good immune booster. Containing vitamins A, C, E, anti-cancer agents, and strong antioxidants, there aren’t many things that are more effective at boosting your immune system than broccoli.
