Foods Can Help With Chronic Inflammation

Did you know there are foods that help with Chronic inflammation?

Well...A new study by the University of Liverpool's Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease, is identifying food that can help prevent chronic inflammation that leads to many causes of death.

It now looks like diets rich in fruits and vegetables, that contain polyphenols, are the ones to look for.

What are they?

Onions, turmeric, red grapes, green tea and açai berries for starters.

How do they do this?

T-cells, or T-lymphocytes, are a type of white blood cell that circulates around our bodies, constantly monitoring for cellular abnormalities and infections.

They contribute to cell signalling molecules (cytokines) that aid cell-to-cell communication in immune responses and stimulate the movement of cells towards sites of inflammation, infection and trauma.

Cytokines are modulated by fruit and vegetable intake.

Sian Richardson, was involved with this study, said polyphenols, "may help reduce the release of pro-inflammatory mediators in people at risk of chronic inflammation.”
