An Anti-Inflammatory Diet Can Help You Age Actively

If  you are an athlete, whether recreation or greater, recovery from activities and energy to go back at it again the next day or weekend is important and the right changes to create a balanced diet can make the difference between feeling ok and feeling outstanding.

Embarking on an anti-inflammatory diet means to move away from an unbalanced diet carbohydrate loaded or fat loaded processed foods toward a more Mediterranean diet comprised of plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, little or no red meat, no chemicals or additives, and lots of phytonutrient based foods and omega-3 foods.

This kind of diet is linked with lowered inflammation in the body.

This is important for any active adult over 50 who is interested in: faster recovery from participating in sports, less aches and pains and less stiffness after physical activities.

The evidence is clear that anti-inflammatory foods can regulate the immune system and impact the way inflammation affects our bodies.
