Anti-inflammatory foods for arthritis

An unhealthy diet consists of foods that are prone to inflammation, such as artificial food additives, fried foods, synthetic sweeteners, antibiotic-enriched animal products, processed foods, and sugar.

Inflammation is a natural component in an immune system’s response. It signals your body from injury or damage, such as when your ankle throbs and inflates after a break so that your immune system may respond.

Apart from external injuries, inflammation can be caused by a variety of factors, including excessive stress, lack of sleep, heredity and poor nutrition.

This diet increases abdominal fat, causes joint discomfort, lowers levels of probiotics in the bowel, causes weight gain, fatigue and bloating, and links diabetes and obesity to heart disease and cancer.
