How to Reduce Inflammation
How to reduce inflammation? Inflammation is the body’s immune response to protect and heal us from infection and foreign substances, including bacteria and viruses. Chronic, or prolonged, inflammation results in long-term tissue destruction and may be the underlying basis to hosts of chronic diseases such as some cancers, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s’ disease, and arthritis. Culinary Expert, Holly Clegg’s cookbook, trim&TERRIFIC™ Eating Well To Fight Arthritis: 200 Easy Recipes and Practical Tips to Help Reduce Inflammation and Ease Symptoms, aims to aid the estimated 46 million adults in the United States living with a form of arthritis and inflammatory diseases.
How to Reduce Inflammation with Food To Ease Arthritis Symptoms
Epidemiology studies show that populations such as the Greeks with a Mediterranean diet high in fruits and vegetables, nuts, healthy oils and fatty fish have less chronic disease. Several nutrients may be specifically important in helping to reduce inflammation, such as the antioxidants Vitamin C, Carotenoids and Omega-3 Fatty Acids. All of which are included in the Anti-Inflammatory chapter of Eating Well to Fight Arthritis with recipes such as Stuffed Bell Pepper Bake, Southwestern Sweet Potato Salad and Roasted Seasoned Salmon. Move over orange juice, did you know 1 cup of bell pepper provides 200% of your daily recommendation of vitamin C? Recipes include nutritional information, diabetic exchanges and high resolution photos.
