Anti-Inflammatory Foods

Anti-Inflammatory foods like fruits and vegetables are packed with antioxidants, which support the immune system – the body’s natural defence system – and may help fight inflammation.

Theobromine –  Theobromine is mainly found in cacao beans so look for 70% dark chocolate bars which can have as much as 810 mg of theobromine.

Turmeric – Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric which has powerful anti-inflammatory effects. Add black pepper to amplify the effect.

Beans have several antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds. They’re a low-cost source of fiber, protein, folic acid and minerals such as magnesium, iron, zinc and potassium.

Olive oil contains heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, antioxidants and oleocanthal, a compound that can lower inflammation and pain.
