    Inflammation is a natural immune response and part of the body’s healing process when the body is injured. Unfortunately, inflammation can sometimes hang around too long and cause more harm than good. The right nutrition can help keep it under wraps, and here are seven of the best types of food to help your body get back to full health. 

    Oily Fish

    Oily fish such as tuna and salmon contains omega-3 fatty acids, ideal for reducing inflammation. The greatest benefits come when we poach, grill and bake fish.

    Whole Grains

    Whole grains, as opposed to refined grains such as white bread, cereal and pasta, contain lots of fibre that can reduce C-reactive protein, a marker of inflammation in the blood. Look for foods with a whole grain as the first ingredient, make it has no added sugars.

    Dark Green Leafy Vegetables

    Dark, green and leafy vegetables such as spinach and broccoli are a great source of vitamin E, which can protect the body from pro-inflammatory molecules. These vegetables are really versatile and can be added to a whole host of different recipes.

    Nuts

    A handful of nuts can help the body repair damage caused by inflammation. Almonds are a great source of fibre, calcium, and vitamin E. Walnuts, which have high amounts of alpha-linolenic acid, a type of omega-3 fat, are also worth your time.

    Tomatoes

    Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, which has been shown to reduce inflammation. Cooked tomatoes contain even more lycopene than raw ones, so don’t skimp on tomatoes with your eggs in the morning, and remember to go all out with tomato sauce on your pasta.

    Beetroot

    Beetroot are high in fibre and vitamin C, have antioxidant credentials and there is evidence to suggest it helps reduce inflammation. This vegetable makes a great addition to a roast vegetable mix or to morning smoothies.

    Turmeric

    Turmeric could help reduce inflammation by turning off a protein that regulates the immune system and triggers the process of inflammation. Just don’t get any on your clothes, or you'll never get it out. Turmeric is one of the ingredients found in The Detox Booster along with a whole host of other interesting ingredients that are well worth a closer look.
