10 Of The Best Anti-Inflammatory Foods

8. Berries are one of the best anti-inflammatory foods

Berries such as blueberries, strawberries and raspberries are an excellent source of antioxidants known as anthocyanins which have been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties.[28][29][30]

A study has revealed that daily blueberry consumption can increase natural killer cell (NK) counts. NK cells are crucial components of the innate immune system and play an important part in the regulation of inflammatory responses.[31]

What to do: Add at least one daily serving of berries to your diet. Add them to your breakfast oatmeal or yogurt and replace sugar laden desserts with berries. Avoid conventionally grown strawberries as they have high pesticide residue levels.
