Inflammation can be helpful, but if it’s out of control, it can cause harm. You need it to protect the body from invaders and to help heal wounds. A lot of things can cause the inflammatory response to go awry. An unhealthy diet is one of those things. Changing your diet can help control the course of a disease caused by inflammation, but sometimes, it’s too late and the change has already been made. Then it’s time to manage chronic inflammation and by doing that, manage the illness or condition.
Your body was meant to move. It tells the brain your capable, while also producing a substance that reduces the amount of TNF, a substance that starts causes inflammation to start. The substance produced by the body when exercising is interleukin 6, a type of protein. As you workout, the muscles produce the interleukin 6 and the longer you workout, the more it produces. Just increasing your exercise by a half hour can boost the production significantly.
Exercise also boosts another Interleukin protein, Interleukin 15. It helps control the amount of abdominal fat you accumulate and excess abdominal fat is linked to inflammation. The less abdominal fat you have, the more you manage your inflammation. Metabolic disease, such as diabetes 2 and inflammatory diseases like rheumatoid arthritis may be controlled by getting more exercise and reducing the amount of fat that is accumulated on the abdomen.
You already know that avoiding sugar can help manage inflammation, but eating other foods and spices can help. A healthy diet of fresh produce and healthy lean protein is important, but for management of an already existing problem, consider adding other herbs and spices, such as turmeric. Add some black pepper to that turmeric to boost its anti-inflammatory properties. Ginger is another herb that contains compounds that have lowered inflammatory markers.
