Inflammation is an important process that occurs when your immune system attempts to heal or defend your body against injuries, bacteria and more. While important, inflammation can also become problematic when it’s chronic.
Differently from acute inflammation that arises after mostly minor incidents like cuts or scrapes, chronic inflammation can occur from disease or other lifestyle factors such as poor diet, stress, excess weight, etc.
Limiting inflammatory symptoms is possible with diet. The following foods can help protect the body against possible damage caused by inflammation:
- Olive Oil
- Leafy Green Vegetables
- Fatty Fish
- Whole Grains
Alternatively, taking a food intolerance test can help you learn which foods are causing inflammation in your system. Utilizing a simple finger-prick blood test, microarray scanning technology can identify the foods that your system is sensitive towards – all with just a few drops of blood.
