Chronic inflammation is the root cause of every serious disease. Eliminate the inflammation and eliminate the disease. Disease like:
Heart Disease Type 2 Diabetes Cancer Arthritis
All of these stem from chronic inflammation within the human body as reported in the article 'The Fires Within' -- the Feb 2004 issue of Time magazine.
Inflammation is an ancient protective defense mechanism built into our bodies to fend off potentially harmful microbes and parasites. Aging can cause this defense system to misfire and bring on the disease mentioned above. The obvious fact is -- if eliminate the chronic inflammation you eliminate the chance of any of these diseases taking hold in your body.
There is a way to measure this type of inflammation?
Yes -- there are three tests -- well known and proven tests -- that reveal how much inflammation is in your body:
C-reactive protein (CRP) High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR)
CRP is used when bowel disease, arthritis, etc is suspected. hs-CRP tests are for heart disease and ESR testing produces similar results using a different method which takes a little longer.
A number of medicines, foods and nutrients are known to reduce this inflammation. One of best known is aspirin. That little 81 milligram tablet does a world of good.
But to answer the Big question "Are there foods that can create an anti inflammation diet?"
Yes! Foods rich in Omega-3 DHA Fatty Acids are wonderful at reducing inflammation. Omega 3 is proven to inhibit the causes of inflammation in the human body.
Oily, cold-water fish, such as wild salmon, hake, halibut, cod, mackerel, herring, sardines and other seafood, such as scallops and oysters are great sources of Omega 3 DHA. 4 to 5 servings per week is the recommended amount.
Other terrific sources of Omega 3 DHA are: walnuts cashew oil flaxseed oil beans olive oil winter squash tofu
Along with anti inflammatory Omega 3 DHA these foods are also excellent choices for increased antioxidants: citrus fruits kale broccoli spinach blueberries cranberries raspberries plums sweet potatoes
Eat these fruits and vegetables on a regular basis and you are going to have a positive impact on inflammatory symptoms.
Teas have an anti-inflammatory effect as well as being a good source of antioxidants - herbal, black, or green. It's your choice.
Incorporating all of these foods into your daily meals will create an anti inflammatory diet. Sometimes - though - this can be difficult if not near impossible to do.
That's where omega 3 DHA fish oil capsules come in -- very handy, very inexpensive, (in fact taking fish oil capsules daily is less costly than eating fish) and they are very simple to take.
Fish oil capsules are a great way of getting the nutrients you need without the worry of being exposed to toxins from eating fish. Omega 3 fish oil capsules are a proven, safe and effective way to guarantee an anti inflammatory diet and the correct amount of omega 3 DHA every day! Guaranteed!
