Different diets tend to be fashionable and trendy, so it is no wonder that deciding if the diet is a fad or not is not an easy task. Diet rich in foods with anti-inflammatory properties has been in the spotlight among nutritionists in the recent years. Inflammation can be acute, which heals naturally, or chronic, which can affect our bodies in different ways, primarily occurring at kidneys, pancreas, heart or reproductive organs. Foods with high content of nutrients and antioxidants are known to reduce the effect of inflammation. Fruits and vegetables, but also some nuts and spices are known to have high levels of anti-oxidants. At the same time with intake of these foods, you should reduce the intake of foods causing inflammation such as highly processed foods.
- A weak inflammatory response during the acute phase can lead to chronic inflammation that lasts for months or years.
- Anti-inflammatory foods (produce, nuts, spices, etc.) are high in nutrients, phytochemicals, and antioxidants.
- Supplements such as CBD Hemp Extract, Omega-3, Spirulina and Vegan DHA can also support a healthy inflammatory response.
“Acute inflammation occurs as a result of an injury or infection and is short-lived, lasting anywhere from minutes to days.”
