Sarah Holvik, Nutritionist, discusses Why are Anti-Inflammatory Foods Important?
Why Are Anti-Inflammatory Foods Important?
We need foods with anti-inflammatory properties in our diet, because inflammation is a starting point for many different chronic diseases. These include cancer, heart disease, arthritis, diabetes and obesity.
For example, people with arthritis can benefit from anti-inflammatory foods by experiencing decreased joint pain, increased mobility, increased flexibility in their joints, as well as decreased overall pain in their bodies.
If you have more questions, please contact your local doctor, or pharmacist, or registered dietitian.
