Consuming anti-inflammatory foods regularly will help prevent diseases in your body. Why is that, you may ask? Well, when your body responds to some kind of infection or stimulant, it creates an inflammatory response. If this inflammation builds up, you can actually lose your ability to fight disease in your body! Inflammation in your body increases when you consume overly-processed, artificial, fake foods regularly. That’s why it’s important to consume healthy, anti-inflammatory foods that will increase your body’s ability to fight and prevent diseases.
Consuming a variety of anti-inflammatory foods will be most beneficial to you. However, if you are going to pick only one to eat, it should be pineapple. Pineapple is rich in the digestive enzyme bromelain. Not only does this enzyme help you digest food better, but it actually reduces inflammation and swelling too! It is recommended you eat half a pineapple every day to get rid of your swelling in a few days, if you are have an injury or such. However, if you are just looking for disease prevention, simply try to incorporate as much as you can. I will note that fresh pineapple will have the most effective and nutritious enzymes, so pick that over canned or dried if possible. You can add pineapple to smoothies, juice, and even pizza.
