Fitness Tip, Inflamation Tips

 A study published in the journal Frontiers in Molecular Neuroscience pinpoints how poorly regulated inflammatory responses affect certain neurons and can lead to loss of brain cells — especially as you get older.

Major triggers are inflammatory foods such as added sugars and saturated fats, hormone-disrupting phthalates and BPA/BPS, and fiery habits like smoking, excess drinking, and lack of sleep.

If you have Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, or chronic stress, your body’s also battling excess inflammation. So call out the fire brigade.

To put out your fires now try these three steps:

  • Take 900 mg daily of DHA omega-3 from algae.
  • Take a probiotic.
  • Floss your teeth daily.

To banish destructive inflammation adopt these long-term habits:

  • Exercise for at least 30 minutes five days a week (walking 10,000 steps or equivalent and strength building).
  • Sleep seven to eight hours nightly.
  • Eat inflammation-fighting foods, like salmon, olive oil, 100 percent whole grains, and cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower
