Hands up those of you who’ve struggled with bloating and inflammation around your tummy and midsection? *All hands raised* Beating the bloat can be challenging, maddening and just downright frustrating, but these inflammation fighting foods could be the answer you’re looking for.
Oily fish, including salmon, tuna, sardines and mackerel are high in omega-3 fatty acids, and when incorporated regularly into your diet, can reduce bloating and inflammation.
Not that we need an excuse to eat avos, but these green guys are packed full of the good stuff like magnesium, fiber, potassium and are naturally low in sodium. Half an avo a day keeps the inflammation away.
Dark leafy greens
Veggies like spinach, kale, broccoli and collard greens have high concentrations of vitamins and minerals like calcium, iron and vitamin E, which protect the body from pro-inflammatory molecules.
And almonds in particular are the real MVP when it comes to fighting inflammation. Rich in fiber, calcium, Vitamin E and Omega-3 fatty acid, they’ll also promote good cardiovascular health!
Berries are famously known for their high levels of antioxidants to help prevent cardiovascular disease, but they’re also high in flavonoids and to help repair any cellular damage caused by inflammation.
