An Anti Inflammatory Diet Will Do This To Your Body


on average a person’s heart beats up to
115 thousand times in a single day with your heart doing that much work you can
see why it’s important to do everything you can to keep your ticker in tip-top
condition when it comes to staying healthy one of the most important
factors to consider is that you’re eating on a regular basis in some cases
the benefits of one diet over another might not always be immediately obvious
that is until you take the time to unpack all of the foods that are
included in that diet as well as their various health benefits
case in point a diet based on foods that lower the chance of inflammation may be
able to not only help you live a more comfortable life but also a longer and
healthier one as well before we continue be sure to subscribe to besties and ring

according to the findings of a recent study a diet that consists heavily of
foods that are known to reduce inflammation has been linked to a
reduced risk of early death that means avoiding overly processed or
manufactured foods and instead focusing on healthier whole ingredient foods such
as an ample amounts of fruits and vegetables the study headed by dr.
Joanna Kaluza examined over 68,000 male and female participants from Sweden
between the ages of 45 and 83 Kaluza and her team monitored these participants
over the course of 16 years and the discovery they made was this the
participants who had the most anti-inflammatory foods in their average
diet experienced a 13% lower risk of cancer a 20% lower risk of heart disease
and 18% lower risk of all-cause mortality in general
looking at these results it seems pretty hard to dispute the effect that
anti-inflammatory foods appear to have on an overall health for those of you
who want to jump on to this anti-inflammatory bandwagon it may
benefit you to learn a little more about this style of diet as well as how to
best maximize its health effects in the long term according to registered
dietitian Ally Webster an anti-inflammatory diet consists of a
diet that is packed with foods that are rich in nutrients and any
that helped reduce the markers associated with inflammation within our
bodies for this particular style of diet key components for meal prep include
fruits vegetables legumes nuts fish and healthy fats from sources such as olive
oil or avocado if this type of diet sounds like all work and no play then
you’ll be happy to know that there’s still plenty of leeway to treat yourself
as well for drinks and dessert red wine and dark chocolate also both possess
anti-inflammatory properties though it hopefully goes without saying that these
additions to your diet should be enjoyed responsibly and within the scope of
moderation remember it’s always possible to have too much of a good thing if a
lot of this dietary advice sounds familiar to you it’s for good reason
Webster describes the anti-inflammatory meal plan as an on-trend term that
describes established recommendations for healthy eating in other words if a
food is considered healthy it probably contains some anti-inflammatory
properties and vice versa for this reason the anti-inflammatory
diet has a lot of overlap with a variety of popular forms of dieting such as the
extremely healthy Mediterranean diet as a general rule of thumb the foods that
are best incorporated into this type of diet consist of anything that’s dense
with nutrients vitamins and minerals as well as a color that comes from a non
artificial source while the types of food you eat on an anti-inflammatory
diet are highly important what is perhaps equally important is the variety
of foods that you don’t eat as well in order to most effectively commit
yourself to an anti-inflammatory diet dietitians and nutritionists suggest
that you stay away from foods that are particularly high in salt saturated fat
refined carbs and sugar when consumed in excess on a regular basis these foods
can potentially increase the markers in your body that cause inflammation
inflammation in turn can lead to health related complications such as chronic
forms of disease like type-2 diabetes heart disease and some varieties of
cancer as Webster writes in an interview for health line inflammation is a
complicated process that even the most knowledgeable scientists don’t
completely understand but there is some research to support that eating
recommended amounts of foods like fruits vegetables and whole grains can reduce
the risk of chronic diseases that have an inflammatory component such as
cardiovascular disease type 2 diabetes and some types of cancer so what makes
the foods that we do include on the anti-inflammatory diets so healthy
primarily the leading health factor for anti-inflammatory foods is the number of
antioxidants that they contain these antioxidants combined with the non
processed nature of whole foods make these foods particularly effective when
it comes to reducing inflammation to quote dietician Dana Huns our ancestors
ate a primarily plant-based diet that was completely unprocessed that’s what
evolutionarily we are supposed to be eating for good health so how can you
start building up good habits in order to make the most of an anti-inflammatory
diet according to dietician Kristin
Kirkpatrick sticking to an anti-inflammatory meal plan extends
beyond simply making smart choices at the grocery store
even when avoiding processed and overly manufactured foods some more natural
foods may still contain some inflammatory markers such as foods that
include natural sugar and red meat another obstacle to overcome is cost as
healthy foods can potentially fetch a higher price we compared to the less
healthy alternatives nevertheless making a significant shift in your diet can
prove to be considerably rewarding on both a physical as well as a mental
level just be sure to take the necessary precautions if you’re going to make any
serious shifts to your meal plans status quo for example people who are taking
medications as a blood thinner should be mindful of the high vitamin K content
found in vegetables other than that however kirkpatrick reassures us that
there is very little risk involved when it comes to making a major positive
change in your diet so don’t let the fear of change scare you away from
making significant improvements to your overall health as well as your quality
of life in general we’re always interested in hearing feedback from the
