In the previous episode, we talked about the best foods for fighting inflammation in your body.
Inflammation is associated with most chronic diseases and there are lots of natural ways we can support our immune system in its fight to restore us to better health. In fact, making just a few simple switches in your daily routine, by adding the foods we talked about before and the appropriate supplement, can make a world of difference when it comes to enhancing immune function.
Some of the top Anti-Inflammatory Supplements are the most natural and inexpensive.
Collagen, for example, promotes cell turnover and keeps the bones and joints healthy and strong.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids. These are a type of polyunsaturated fats that are essential to many different aspects of health, especially when it comes to inflammation and immunity. Taking an Omega-based supplement such as fish oil is an easy and effective way to round out your diet while also ensuring that you’re getting the omega-3 fatty acids that you need.
Bone Broth, which contains a concentrated amount of healing compounds such as collagen, proline, glycine and glutamine. Studies in humans and animals show that bone broth and its components can support joint and skin health and may help retain muscle mass and strengthen the lining of the intestinal tract.
Turmeric. Besides adding a burst of colour and flavour to curries and cuisines, this spice is also jam-packed with health-promoting properties thanks to the presence of curcumin which has been shown to alleviate inflammation and decrease symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis in both human and test-tube studies.
