On one hand, it’s your body’s natural way of protecting itself when you’re injured or sick. It can help your body defend itself from illness and stimulate healing. On the other hand, chronic, sustained inflammation is linked to an increased risk of diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and obesity

In a nutshell:

Interestingly, the foods you eat can significantly affect inflammation in your body. In this video, we’ll reveal 10 foods that cause inflammation. How Do Unhealthy Foods Cause Inflammation? Chronic inflammation is associated with certain diseases like diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and depression and can also cause plaque build-up in the arteries, leading to stroke and heart disease. Scientifically put, certain foods can affect inflammatory markers in the body, namely C-reactive protein found in the blood. For example, processed sugars can flip the switch for an inflammatory response. Consistently eating a lot of sugar results in chronic inflammation and the resulting disease. But research shows that consuming too much added sugar leads to chronic inflammation. But when there’s too much sugar at one time, insulin tries to store the excess in your fat cells, causing them to get larger. Our body is not designed to process excessive amounts of added sugar throughout the day, we must be more aware when choosing products and reading the label. Added sugars can cause those spikes in blood sugar.Natural sugars found in fruit and dairy do not typically spike your blood sugar as quickly because they also contain fiber and lean protein to help slow digestion. Food manufacturers create trans fats through the process of hydrogenation. But researchers have found that there’s no safe level of trans fats to consume. Food manufacturers know that trans fats are the latest bad guys on the block, so they’ve gotten creative with labeling. While many food labels clearly state ‘no trans fat’ or ‘trans fat-free,’ a product is still allowed to hide a half gram or less per serving of their products. This is where it gets tricky because if you eat more than one serving, you have easily exceeded the one gram of trans fat or less per day limit. If you see hydrogenated oils or partially hydrogenated oils in the ingredient list, then the food contains trans fat. Research shows both processed and red meats are high in saturated fat, which causes inflammation. Studies have shown that higher intakes of these meats lead to cancer, heart disease and stroke, all of which go hand-in-hand with inflammation. Omega-6 fatty acids are fats that your body uses for energy. Since your body can’t make them, you get them from the foods you eat. Consuming omega-3s (fats you get from foods such as salmon, walnuts and flaxseed) helps you achieve that balance. Research shows that refined carbs may cause inflammation in your body. And elevated blood sugar creates an inflammatory response. Your body is trying to remove the sugar from your blood, so it stimulates that inflammation. They help you create a steady balance in your body after you eat, which means less inflammation. Health professionals recommend eating more omega-3-rich foods, such as fatty fish, to improve your omega-6 to omega-3 ratio and reap the anti-inflammatory benefits of omega-3s. Many choose not to eat foods containing gluten. Avoid inflammation by purchasing foods that are gluten-free. When reading the labels, however, make sure that the gluten-free product does not contain unnecessary added ingredients like potato starch or tons of sugar. It is a known cause of food-related inflammation. What Are The Health Benefits Of Eating Non-Inflammatory Foods? ● Eating fruits and vegetables gives your body anti-inflammatory nutrients ● Omega 3’s balance the inflammatory processes in the body ● Eating clean as opposed to processed and fatty foods reduces the intake of unhealthy fats ● Foods like whole grains, beans, and lentils contain antioxidants that repair cell and tissue damage
