With growing evidence that prolonged inflammation raises the risk of many diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease, there is no doubt that diet is an important factor. The following are healthy ways to reduce inflammation through diet:
- Eat a diet rich in omega-3s, including wild Alaskan salmon, sardines, freshly ground flaxseed and walnuts.
- Incorporate plenty of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables into your meals.
- Reduce your intake of polyunsaturated vegetable oils (such as soybean, sunflower, corn and safflower oils), replacing them instead with extra virgin olive oil.
- Use healing spices in your cooking: turmeric, ginger and red pepper can add zing to meals and are all naturally anti-inflammatory.
