(NaturalNews) Inflammation, especially chronic, low-level inflammation, is a problem for people all over the United States. Not only does it manifest itself with problems like rheumatoid arthritis or Crohn's disease but the medical profession is linking it to serious health issues like diabetes, heart disease, and even cancer. There are many medications, both prescription and over-the-counter, which have been designed to specifically help to reduce inflammation throughout the body. However, all of these medications come with unwanted side effects, including stomach ulcers and other digestive problems as well as damage to the liver.

Fortunately, there are also natural ways to help reduce chronic inflammation without having to resort to these drugs. One of these natural ways is to eat a diet with foods which help to fight inflammation and to reduce the damage that it can do throughout the body. Read on to find out more about the best foods to accomplish this.

Sardines

Sardines are a wonderful food to incorporate into the diet if chronic inflammation is an issue. This is because they are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. These acids have powerful anti-inflammatory properties which can help to reduce swelling, irritation, pain and other signs of inflammation throughout the body. (1)

Matcha

Matcha is a powdered form of green tea which is incredibly rich in antioxidant compounds. These compounds also have anti-inflammatory properties and they are particularly good for those with arthritis, as they can also promote the health of the cartilage in the joints. (2)

Broccoli

Broccoli, like other cruciferous vegetables, is a rich source of sulfur-based compounds that have also been known to reduce inflammation. They, too, are great for conditions like arthritis because these sulfur compounds block the action of an enzyme linked to joint damage and destruction. (3)

Cherries

While all berries are incredibly healthy, cherries are particularly good for those with chronic inflammatory conditions. This is because of their anthocyanins, compounds which can reduce inflammation, protect the joints and aid in the healing process of the connective tissues. (4)

Avocados

Avocados are considered to be one of the healthiest fruits out there because of how rich they are in nutrients. Some of these nutrients are polyhydroxylated fatty acids or PFAs. PFAs are useful because they have incredibly strong anti-inflammatory properties. (5)

These foods are not exotic and can be purchased at any grocery store. They are also delicious and easy to incorporate into the diet. And the benefits to be had in regards to reducing inflammation can be significant, and are very important for those suffering from arthritis or other chronic inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis or Crohn's disease. They may even reduce the chances of developing cancer and other serious conditions.
