The immune system becomes activated when our body recognizes anything that is foreign—such as an invading microbe, plant pollen, or chemical. This often triggers a process called inflammation. Intermittent bouts of inflammation directed at truly threatening invaders protect our health.
However, sometimes inflammation persists, day in and day out, even when we are not threatened by a foreign invader. That’s when inflammation can become your enemy. Many major diseases that plague us—including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, depression, and Alzheimer’s—have been linked to chronic inflammation.
An anti-inflammatory diet should include these foods:
Fatty fish – Salmon / Sardines / Herring / Mackerel / Anchovies
Peppers – Bell Peppers/ Chilli Peppers
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Dark Chocolate and Cocoa
