Adopting an inflammation-reducing diet is prominent among such lifestyle choices, with approximately 60 percent of chronic diseases being preventable with healthy foods. Foods that actively reduce inflammation in the body, as proven by research, include the following. (2)
1. Olive Oil
‘Pure’ or ‘virgin’ olive oil is best for cooking, and extra virgin olive oil can be a great supplement to salad dressings. Drizzling olive oil over cooked vegetables also boosts their absorption levels!
Be wary of coconut, peanuts, rice, and canola oil, as there is not enough research to confirm that the beneficial phytochemicals found in olive oil are also present in these other substitutes. (2)
Using the compound lycopene, tomatoes stop pro-inflammatory processes within the body. Those who are overweight and at risk for developing cancer can benefit the most from consuming tomatoes. As well, eating tomatoes with healthy fats and oils will improve the absorption of lycopene, as lycopene is a fat-soluble nutrient. (4)
Bell peppers and chili peppers are loaded with the antioxidant quercetin, which decreases the oxidative damage from diseases like sarcoidosis. Chili peppers contain sinapic acid and ferulic acid, which may reduce overall inflammation and lead to healthier aging. (4)
Just a word about Nightshades [Tomatoes, Bell Peppers, Eggplant, Potatoes (not sweet potato) and Pepper derived spices like Cayenne and Paprika]…many people tend to believe that nightshades actually promote inflammation and should be avoided.
The truth is for most people, there’s no need to avoid nightshades.
There haven’t been any large scale studies done to link them to any negative health consequences. Although, there are some diets that do cut nightshades out because people will report feeling better when they do not eat them. But just like many foods, it truly depends on how it affects the individual.
For some, like those with arthritis or autoimmune deficiencies, they may cause issues but for the most part, they are not typically considered as inflammatory foods for everyone. Nightshades are a rich source of micronutrients and an important part of a healthy diet for most people.
Almonds, walnuts, and macadamia nuts all lower markers of inflammation in the human body, while also reducing the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. If you don’t love nuts, consider almond milk as another way to build nuts and their inflammation-reducing properties into your daily diet. (1)
5. Fatty Fish
Salmon, mackerel, lake trout, herring, sardines, and tuna are all high in omega-3 fatty acids, which have potent inflammation-reducing properties embedded into the fatty acids (eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid). (4)
Among being low in calories and rich in minerals, mushrooms contain phenols and antioxidants that protect from inflammation. Lion’s mane, a special type of mushroom, may hold benefits for those experiencing low-grade inflammation secondary to obesity. Eating mushrooms raw or lightly cooked may help you reap their full inflammation-reducing potential. (4)
Naturally rich in antioxidants, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries make for a sweet but healthy treat. Specifically, berries use a compound called anthocyanins to boost the immune system and diminish inflammation. (4)
