Have you ever heard of “inflammageing”? There is a process in your body that plays a huge role in ageing that it’s actually been called “inflammageing” – inflammation + ageing.
Inflammation is your body’s immune response to toxins as it tries to remove them from your system.
It can cause aches and pains – and over the long term it can actually trigger chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease & strokes, mood disturbances, and it’s even linked with Alzheimer’s!
Research shows that a key sign of ageing is having more inflammatory markers in your bloodstream.
Low-grade inflammation is highly influenced by your gut microbiome … and by what you eat! Science shows that changing your diet to include more anti-inflammatory foods can help slow, stop, or maybe even REVERSE low-grade inflammation.
In simple terms this means that what’s inside your kitchen or pantry can make a BIG difference in how you age.
Yes, people often talk more about what you SHOULDN’T eat – like sugar, processed foods, etc. – because they are linked with a higher risk of disease.
BUT there are actually foods that help FIGHT a major factor in ageing. Plus, they can reduce aches and pains.
How To Avoid Inflammageing?
Well here’s your anti-inflammatory food checklist that can help
- Veggies – a colorful array that includes tomatoes & leafy greens
- Fruits – strawberries, blueberries, oranges, etc.
- Nuts – tree nuts (walnuts, almonds, etc.) are a good source of healthy fats
- Fish – especially fatty fish (like salmon) that contain omega-3 fatty acids
- Whole grains – contain important vitamins and fiber
- We also strongly recommend supplementing with a high strength Omega 3 Fish Oil
If you don’t have many of those foods in your kitchen, think about adding them to your shopping list!!
Then … experiment with some fun recipes: here are some to check out https://www.eatingwell.com/gallery/12952/anti-inflammatory-recipes/
Together, these foods provide antioxidants, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, prebiotics, and polyphenols to help your body function optimally.
Another possible add-on that research shows might help is probiotics – but be sure to talk to your doctor or pharmacist about supplements before you add them to your routine!
As you can see, it’s not only what you don’t eat that matters for your health – it’s also what you DO eat!
Research also shows that the balance of essential fatty acids (Omega 6 and Omega 3) in the body is crucial to avoid a number of diseases and chronic inflammation.
Scientists say that this ratio should be between 1:1 and 3:1.
But here is the WARNING sign: 95% of people have a balance outside this range!
We’re all about creating REAL sustainable transformation and change. We are here to help.
If you would you like to know what the ratio is in your body? We now have a simple dry blood test available which comes with a comprehensive health report.
