Nature has given us plenty of natural substances that help us lead a healthier life, and eating certain fruits can boost your immune system and make your body stronger against inflammation. Some other health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer and arthritis are all related to chronic inflammation.
All fruits are rich in different vitamins and nutrients, but the ones with a particular extra amount of antioxidants can make a good difference in keeping your body away from substances that stimulate inflammation in the body and preventing cell damage.
In this article we will show you 10 fruits with anti-inflammatory properties and their benefits to your health.
To start our list, cherries stand out as one of the strongest anti-inflammatory fruits you can find. Red fruits are mostly rich in vitamin C and phytochemicals like lycopene and ellagic acid. These nutrients have called the attention of researchers for their cancer-fighting properties. Red fruits in general also improve blood circulation and help blood vessels dilate. This is great for people with high blood-pressure and heart disease. Studies have shown that eating cherries on a daily basis can make a difference in preventing arthritis and joint pain.
Another red fruit that children love, strawberries contain anthocyanin, which is linked to lowering the risk of heart attacks, and quercetin, which has anti-inflammatory properties. Also rich in vitamin C, fibre and potassium, strawberries help fight inflammation through its high content of antioxidants that relieve stress in our body.
Avocado appears on the list of superfruits alongside Açaí and blueberries. With an amazing variety of antioxidants, Avocado is also rich in vitamin E, fibre and monounsaturated fats (healthy fats) that work against inflammation. This green and yellow fruit definitely stands out from the others and it’s a fruit everyone should include on their diet to keep your metabolism and body in good function with a complete supply of vitamins, nutrients and amino acids.
This famous red fruit had to be on our list of fruits with anti-inflammatory properties. Apple skins contain antioxidants called anthocyanins that work against inflammation. Studies have shown that apples also reduce cholesterol and its vitamin A and C content work effectively against free radicals in our body. It’s also such an easy fruit to eat.
Native to Brazil, this powerful purple superfruit is known as a magical fruit. Packed with a great number of antioxidants, açaí works by getting rid of free radicals that harm our body and can lead to chronic inflammation and to the development of other diseases. Also great for muscle inflammation, Açaí speeds up recovery and acts as an energy booster for physical activities. Açaí smoothies have been more and more popular as this superfruit started going around the world.
This spiky tropical fruit is known for its acid taste and exotic looks, and on top of that, an enzyme called bromelain present in pineapples is the main substance responsible for its anti-inflammatory properties. Bromelain is great for reducing muscle inflammation after a strenuous exercise and also provides pain relief for patients with arthritis. Not to mention the juiciness of this amazing fruit is a great choice for a hot sunny day.
Another popular fruit with anti-inflammatory properties, Watermelon is an extremely watery fruit, with 92% of it consisting of just water. This jolly fruit is the richest of all fruits in lycopene, a powerful antioxidant linked to reduction of the risk of cancer, diabetes, heart diseases and even Alzheimer’s disease. Also rich in Vitamin B6, which is important for protein breakdown and it helps the nervous system to work properly. Many people don’t know the benefits of watermelon and would eat them a lot more if they knew how it hydrates your body and balances your metabolism. A great choice to add to your diet for sure.
These small fruits are another amazing source of antioxidants that help reduce inflammation. Anthocyanins are linked to anti-inflammatory activity in the body, and just like watermelons, work to prevent health issues like obesity and diseases like diabetes, Alzheimer’s and eye disorders as well. Resveratrol is another compound that protects the heart against inflammation. One of the easiest fruits to eat, grapes have been eaten by Egyptians and Middle easterns for thousands of years and are one the most popular fruits in the world, especially among wine lovers.
Blueberries are small little fruits very popular in the northern hemisphere and also share the title of superfruits along Açaí and Avocado. Usually eaten frozen or cold, the sweet-tasting fruit rich in polyphenols shows anti-inflammatory activity through its high antioxidant content and may help prevent cancer cells and cell damage. Blueberry pie, juice, smoothie or pancakes are incredibly common and adding the tiny berries on your diet will for sure make you feel better more and more against swellness and inflammation.
