STORY AT-A-GLANCE
Inflammation is your body’s built-in emergency response to assaults resulting in injury or infection. If the inflammation is not resolved, it becomes chronic, which can result in serious disease states such as rheumatoid arthritis, liver disease and heart disease
There are many anti-inflammatory nutrients, and if you make a habit of including enough of them in your diet, you can keep inflammation in check relatively easily
Nutrients known for their potent anti-inflammatory properties include omega-3 fats EPA and DHA, which are also crucial for the functionality of your cell membranes and the membranes of your mitochondria, and ginger, which has been shown to bolster immune system function and ameliorate autoimmune diseases such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis
Curcumin, a compound found in turmeric, has antibacterial, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, antimalarial, antioxidant, antiparasitic, antiproliferative, pro-apoptotic and wound healing properties. Conditions responsive to curcumin include certain types of cancer, high blood pressure, heart disease and blood clots, intestinal and bowel issues, neurodegenerative conditions and glaucoma
Other potent anti-inflammatory nutrients include chondroitin, glucosamine, MSM, vitamin E, glycine, bromelain, boswellic acid and green tea extract
