Anti Inflammatory


Before we can fully comprehend why an anti-inflammatory diet may be beneficial and is currently one of the most talked-about diets, we must first comprehend what inflammation is. Your finger becomes inflamed and red after you cut it. Your knee is swollen and irritated after you injure it. What does inflammation mean for your internal organs, though?

Inflammation is a natural defense process that allows your body to fight infection, disease, and injury. It can also be chronic, which can lead to a variety of disorders. However, we have some control over our inflammation levels. Inflammation can be exacerbated by factors such as smoking, being overweight or obese, and binge drinking. Diet has a part as well, and some doctors believe that changing your diet and drinking habits rather than taking medicine is a better way to reduce inflammation.
