Almost all modern diseases are completely or partly caused by inflammation and oxidation.
Type 2 diabetes, plaque buildup in arteries (causing stroke and heart attack), arthritis, many cancers, high blood pressure, and even obesity could all be avoided if your body didn’t suffer inflammation and oxidation.
That’s why it’s so important to include antioxidant and anti-inflammatory foods in your diet.
The good news… in today’s article I’m going to reveal the most powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory foods I know. And you can find all of them (usually dirt cheap) in your local supermarket or health food store.
1. Sauerkraut: With a name that wants you to lick your lips, this fermented cabbage treat is not only a powerhouse of vitamins but also full of live cultures that help cure stomach illness. Go for homemade, organic, or pure sauerkraut for best results.
2. Kefir: Kefir is a tangy, protein-rich fermented beverage with a host of probiotic bacteria to delight your gut microbes. Even for those who have lactose intolerance, kefir is available in mixtures of water or coconut water instead of milk.
3. Pickles: The fermented ones, instead of the vinegar-based pickles are the real deal. The fermented variety has beneficial bacteria but make sure that the pickle does not contain artificial color, flavor or additives.
4. Greek yogurt: Fermented milk products like kefir might not be for everyone, but yogurt is a simple and delicious choice for most people. Milk and live yogurt cultures should ideally be the only ingredients in Greek yogurt for best benefits.
5. Kimchi: Kimchi might not be as well-known as sauerkraut but its benefits are even more powerful, considering that it has the added benefits of garlic, ginger and scallions, apart from live culture.
6. Kombucha: This famous Chinese fermented drink is known to boost energy levels, help in weight loss, and overall wellbeing. It is made by fermenting sweetened black tea with yeast and bacteria.
7. Miso: A paste made of fermented soybeans, salt and a type of fungus called kojikin, this Japanese delicacy can be added to soups or stews to get its benefits.
