Your diet can promote inflammation: these are the responsible foods

Published on

The diet we eat can have a great influence on our health, benefiting it and reducing inflammatory processes or, on the contrary, favoring inflammation. We tell you what the inflammatory diet is about and what are the foods that make it up.

Diet and inflammation: the key is to reduce ultra-processed

A quality diet, rich in fiber, antioxidants, and fats such as omega 3, which has an anti-inflammatory effect, can be of great help to reduce diseases mediated by inflammatory processes, including arthritis, conditions such as soreness, or metabolic pathologies such as obesity or other degenerative diseases such as cancer.

On the contrary, poor quality food can be responsible for suffering diseases mediated by inflammatory processes. Thus, it has been proven that a diet rich in red meat, refined flour, and sugars can be really harmful.

This type of diet promotes inflammation by offering a low amount of antioxidants derived from various fruits and vegetables, as well as an imbalance between omega 6 and omega 3 that is pro-inflammatory.

Therefore, we must know that in order for our diet not to promote inflammation it is essential to avoid the ultra-processed that currently have great prominence at the table of many people and offer nutrients with pro-inflammatory effect in the body.

In other words, studies recommend avoiding table sugar, soft drinks, sweets, pastry and bakery products, cold cuts and sausages, red meat in general, white bread and other derivatives of refined wheat, as well as commercial and frozen snacks.

Many studies also recommend reducing fast-food meals and all those made outside the home to the maximum, prioritizing homemade dishes based on fresh and seasonal foods, among which there should be no shortage of fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, legumes and whole grains, and fish if we eat an omnivorous diet.

You know, your diet can be the cause of your disease or aggravate it if you choose foods that promote inflammation or, on the contrary, it can help you improve the quality of life by protecting health if it has an anti-inflammatory effect on your body.
