Which foods have anti-inflammatory properties?

Posted on: December 22, 2013

Kale

One serving contains 121 milligrams of omega-3 fatty acids and 92.4 milligrams of omega-6, making it a green, leafy superstar of healing potential; kale is “the most nutrient dense food on the planet,” according to Daniluk.

Shiitake mushrooms

Contain a compound that helps increase the immune response and fight infection. They are also antimicrobial and contain polysaccharides that have been used in cancer treatments to “reduce the immune-compromising effects that are experienced with chemotherapy and radiation,” Daniluk says.

Sesame and hemp seeds

Both contain plant sterols that act as an “immune balancer” for those suffering with immune system-attacking illnesses, such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus. They are exceptionally rich in calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese and zinc for excellent immune balance as well as vitamins B1, B3 and E.

Researchers have found that chronic inflammation is linked with all diseases, including diabetes, obesity, heart disease and even cancers. So eliminating inflammation is the key to improving disease and preventing it. Therefore, individuals need to develop a regular pattern of healthy eating by also consuming squash, berries, tomatoes, walnuts, cold-water fish, dark chocolate, flax and chia seeds and green tea to receive the most health benefits.
