Combat inflammation 5 ingredients

Let's talk about inflammation. We all know the signs, as we've all likely experienced it.

  • Pain

  • Redness

  • Heat

  • Swelling

  • Stopping optimal functioning of the body

What causes it?

There are countless root causes for inflammation. Partnering with your Doctor to identify the cause is an important step in your healing.

Some well-known causes include:

  • Foreign irritants entering the body, triggering your body into fight mode

  • Some medications

  • Excessive weight gain

  • Certain foods and beverages (such as alcohol, sugar and refined carbs)

  • Excessive stress, anxiety and/or depression

  • Gout

Inflammation is your body's response to fighting these root causes and bringing your body back into balance.

But there are things that we can change in our diets to help our bodies maintain this balance from the outset. Let's explore U8F's top picks for foods that fight inflammation.

(1) Beetroot

Fun fact: there was a study that found that those who consumed beet juice before a training session lasted longer in their session than those who did not. A fun, natural ingredient for your workout needs!

(2) Pineapple

Pineapples help with protein breakdown. Inflammation is, at its core, rogue proteins causing havoc in our bodies.

(3) Ginger

(4) Turmeric

(5) Cucumber
