11 Anti Inflammatory Foods to Try Today

FT Westborough Aug 12, 2019 Nutrition

What is the anti-inflammatory diet?

It is a dietary change suggested by many doctors for patients with chronic inflammation or auto immune disorders such as Rheumatoid Arthritis. It can be helpful in treating allergies, nearly every inflammatory bowel disorder, and Tom Brady even endorses it to combat the inflammation he experiences after taking hits during games. 

The anti-inflammatory diet is rich in green vegetables, Iron, and most importantly Omega-3’s. There is a large emphasis on nuts, certain fruits, and fish. Beware; not all vegetables combat inflammation. The nightshade family, which includes eggplant and tomato, can actually increase inflammation.
