Foods can have a profound effect on either increasing or decreasing inflammation throughout the body.
Redness, heat and swelling are classic symptoms of an inflammatory response however you don't necessarily have to be suffering from any of these specific symptoms to be affected by low level systemic inflammation. Common conditions associated with inflammation range from skin problems, digestive issues and muscle aches to and arthritis and joint pain. We now understand that low level inflammation is also associated with speeding up the ageing process.
Inflammatory responses in the body can be 'switched on' or 'switched off' by certain foods. Minimising inflammatory foods and maximising intake of anti inflammatory foods and supplements has been scientifically proven to help calm symptoms of inflammation and thus reduce many of it's associated health problems.
