How anti-inflammatory diet helps keep the body healthy

News desk: The idea of healthy living is not just restricted to maintaining the shape of one’s body or keeping the body weight under check. It is much more than that. It involves the overall health of the body.

Recently, an anti-inflammatory diet has been widely promoted because of the benefits it possesses for the whole body. It is being followed by a large population around the world and is something to ponder over.

What is inflammation?

It is a common belief that inflammation is not good for the body. On the contrary, it is the body’s natural response system triggered by the immune system. When foreign particles enter our body, or the body suffers some injury like a cut or a bruise, inflammation occurs.

The inflammation is the body’s response to confirm that the natural defences have been engaged. It occurs when cells travel across the body, to reach the affected area. Thus we feel the sensation in the form of inflammation.

Prolonged inflammation is considered harmful, because when it is persistent, it damages healthy cells of the body. It further creates a pro-inflammatory state. The inflammation remains for a long time due to certain diseases, such as Crohn’s disease, rheumatoid, fibromyalgia, type 1 diabetes, lupus, multiple sclerosis and arthritis.

The other major causes of inflammation are unhealthy and sedentary lifestyle, consumption of high-calorie diet and stress. These factors trigger chronic low levels of inflammation in the entire body. This condition is known as metaflammation.

What is an anti-inflammatory diet?

In simple terms, an anti-inflammatory diet is a remedy for inflammation. It is widely acknowledged that food plays an important role in case of inflammation. Food can trigger or worsen inflammation being felt by the body. Processed and sugary foods are known to impact inflammation in a bad way. On the other hand, wholesome and fresh foods are likely to help ease it.
