Fish: 1 of the Best Anti-inflammatory Foods

Certain types of fish are rich in eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), omega-3 fatty acids which have long been related to reduced inflammation and a lower risk of chronic inflammatory diseases.

Studies have also shown a reduced use of anti-inflammatory drugs with an increased intake of omega-3 fatty acids

Higher intakes of EPA and DHA have been associated with decreased inflammatory markers.

Salmon has the added benefit of containing astaxanthin, an antioxidant with potent anti-inflammatory properties. Astaxanthin is found in red hued shellfish and fish such as salmon and red trout.

So, include at least 3 to 4 oz fish in your diet 2X a week. Some of the best sources of omega-3 rich fish are salmon, sardines, tuna, mackerel and anchovies
