Have you ever experienced some sort of inflammation? Puffiness under eyes or face? One of the immune system’s most powerful tools to fight infections is inflammation. Some of the characteristics of the inflammation process include increased blood flow to the target site, migration of the immune system cells to the area, increased free radical production, destruction of normal tissue and production of scar tissue. All this is critical to fighting infection and disease.
However, if the inflammation lingers, it can become chronic and dangerous. Aging promotes inflammation, inflammation promotes premature aging and beauty starts to fade. It is a vicious cycle.
There are many botanical extracts that inhibit inflammation. Green tea is one of the most powerful and has been studied more than any other natural product for its anti-inflammatory properties. Chlorophyll is another scientifically proven ingredient for not only reducing inflammation but liver cleansing and neutralizing acidity in your body. This is truly a powerhouse.
Here are some food that fight inflammation:
fatty fish: salmon, tuna, sardines
dark leafy greens: spinach, kale, broccoli, and collard greens
peppers and garlic
herbs: basil, chili peppers, oregano, parsley, rosemary, thyme and turmeric
Beauty is skin deep, when combined with the right food, it only makes better sense that you’ll see healthier and younger skin.
