A HELPING HAND
Adding a few little extras to your everyday diet will boost the anti-inflammatory benefits even more.
Garlic: A clove of garlic a day is a potent anti-inflammatory. Use it regularly in cooking but if you don’t mind the pungent taste, raw is best.
Chillies: Chillies contain capsaicin, a chemical compound with antiinflammatory properties.
Ginger: High in gingerol, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, ginger has been shown to have the potential to reduce the pain and inflammation caused by arthritis.
Turmeric: Studies have shown curcumin, a compound in turmeric, may reduce inflammation.
Green tea: Green tea has a lot to offer our health, but one of the most significant benefits is its antiinflammatory properties, thanks to a high concentration of antioxidant polyphenols which work to reduce inflammation.
Vitamin C: Low levels of vitamin C have been linked with inflammatory conditions. In studies, volunteers with a low dietary intake of vitamin C-rich fruit and veg had higher inflammation blood markers.
Bone broth: Bone broth is a rich source of gelatin and collagen, which can soothe the intestinal tract and help heal leaky gut. The gelatin and collagen also support your joints and bones, and reduce inflammation throughout your body.
