11 Foods That Fight Inflammation

Inflammation is part of your body’s natural immune system. It’s a healing response that helps you mend after injury and sickness.

But when inflammation is out of control, as in certain auto-immune conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, it can damage your cells.

Proper nutrition can help you control your body’s inflammatory response. For example, foods that are high in sugar and fat help fuel inflammation.

Try adding these 11 foods to your diet to help keep inflammation under control.

  1. Whole grains
  2. Dark, leafy greens
  3. Nuts
  4. Low-fat dairy
  5. Peppers
  6. Tomatoes
  7. Beets
  8. Ginger and turmeric
  9. Garlic and onions
  10. Olive oil
  11. Berries and tart cherries

Always consult your doctor before changing your diet to manage an inflammatory condition.
