10 Of The Best Anti-Inflammatory Foods

7. Tomatoes are one of the best anti-inflammatory foods

Tomatoes are the best source of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant. Lycopene is also an anti-inflammatory agent that prevents the production of inflammatory cytokines.[25]

Consumption of tomato juice has been shown to reduce inflammation in overweight individuals.[26]

What to do: Cooked tomatoes and processed tomatoes are better than raw tomatoes as the availability of lycopene is increased. Remember to choose BPA free canned tomatoes or purchase those sold in glass containers. Cooking tomatoes in olive oil boosts the availability of lycopene.[27]
