6. Turmeric is one of the best anti-inflammatory foods
Curcumin is the active anti-inflammatory compound found in turmeric, a commonly consumed spice in curry dishes.
Curcumin is effective for reducing inflammation associated with colitis, arthritis and other inflammatory diseases.
When a study compared the anti-inflammatory potency of curcumin to aspirin and ibuprofen, curcumin was found to more potent.
What to do:
Add 1 to 3 grams of ground turmeric powder a day to your diet; 1 gram is about ½ teaspoon. Use turmeric in rice, soups, curries or brew some tea with it. Ingested curcumin is poorly absorbed by the body, but the addition of black pepper can increase absorption by 2000%.
