Anti-inflammatory Foods​

Anti inflammatory foods

Encourage the consumption of foods that have natural anti-inflammatory properties to help reduce inflammation. These include fatty fish (salmon, mackerel, sardines), leafy greens (spinach, kale, collard greens), berries (blueberries, strawberries), nuts (walnuts, almonds), olive oil, turmeric, ginger, and green tea.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids​

Omega 3 fatty acids

Increase the intake of omega-3 fatty acids, as they are known for their anti-inflammatory effects. Besides fatty fish, other sources of omega-3s include chia seeds, flaxseeds, and walnuts.


Reduce Omega-6 Fatty Acids

While omega-6 fatty acids are essential, they can promote inflammation when consumed in excess relative to omega-3s. Limit the intake of processed and refined vegetable oils (corn, soybean, sunflower, safflower) as they are high in omega-6s.

Colorful fruits and vegetables

Fruits and veggies

Encourage a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables in the diet. They are rich in vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals that combat inflammation.

Whole grains

Whole grains

Opt for whole grains like quinoa, brown rice, and oats instead of refined grains. Whole grains have more fiber and nutrients that can support gut health and reduce inflammation.
