Managing Inflammation

Managing Inflammation

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Hippocrates   Did you know that you  can manage inflammation through nutrition? While some inflammation is necessary to fight off infection and repair broken-down muscle after a workout, chronic inflammation can cause serious health issues. Eating quality meals high in vegetables, fruits, antioxidant-rich grains, fish and healthy proteins, and nuts and seeds has been shown to help prevent long-term health issues by helping to limit inflammation.  Learning simple strategies to control inflammation in the body can be a game changer for your health, performance, and recovery. Here are five dietary contributors to inflammation to be aware of. Fill your diet with anti-inflammatory options like grass-fed meat, fish, eggs, and fruits and vegetables.   Omega-3 fatty acids are also a great source of healthy fat that have been shown to help maintain the body’s normal inflammatory response during strenuous exercise.* THORNE RESEARCH: Sports Performance | Omega-3 *SIX REASONS YOU MAY NEED TO FILL THE GAPS MEDICAL DIAGNOSIS SPECIFIC STRENGTH & POWER GOALS INCREASED PHYSICAL ACTIVITY DIGESTIVE ISSUES INCREASED STRESS KNOWN NUTRITION DEFICIENCY *This statement has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
