7 Foods That SLASH Inflammation

Inflammation is the classic case of “too much of a good thing.”

In small doses, inflammation actually helps our bodies heal from things like cuts, bruises, and infections. 

But long-term, chronic inflammation can be a killer. 

It’s been linked to joint pain… diabetes… heart disease… cancer… Alzheimer’s… and lots more. 

And anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen and aspirin wreak havoc on your liver and gastrointestinal tract. 

Luckily, there are 7 “super foods” that can help you slash high inflammation levels naturally. 

Even better? They run CIRCLES around prescription drugs. 

  1. Berries. Numerous types of berries contain a plant compound called anthocyanins that have been shown to help prevent anti-inflammatory disorders. Blueberries in particular have been shown to regulate “heat shock proteins” in the brain – an important benefit that reduces the inflammation linked to neurodegenerative disorders. And another type of berry – strawberries – has been shown to help relieve the pain and inflammation of knee osteoarthritis.
  1. Cayenne pepper. This hot spice contains a compound called capsaicin that can help tame inflammation. Ointments made of capsaicin are known for their pain-relieving effects, and consuming cayenne pepper has been shown to help relieve back pain. 
  1. Leafy greens vegetables, like kale and spinach, contain high levels of calcium and magnesium – two critical minerals necessary for calming overactive inflammatory responses.
  1. Ginger. One study found that ginger was just as effective as cortisone at reducing inflammatory compounds called cytokines – and superior to ibuprofen. Of course, the big difference is that ginger fights inflammation without piling on the side effects.
  1. Olive oil. This Mediterranean staple is loaded with an anti-inflammatory compound called oleic acid. It’s no wonder, then, that studies show that consuming olive oil can reduce inflammation.
  1. Turmeric. This one should come as no surprise. Turmeric contains a well-known inflammation-fighter called curcumin. Studies show that curcumin can help heal tendonitis, a painful condition that involves inflammation of the tendons.
  1. Celery and celery seeds. This one doesn’t get much recognition, but it should. Celery (and its seeds) contain more than 20 anti-inflammatory compounds – including a well-known compound called apigenin. In addition, studies have shown that an extract of celery seeds is as effective as aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen at relieving arthritis pain.

To a brighter day,
