Six Anti-Inflammatory Foods for Better Health

Combat inflammation the natural way with healthy foods

Inflammation is the body’s defensive response against cell damage or microbial infection to remove the cause of injury and repair the injured tissues. Inflammation presents with symptoms of redness, heat, pain, and swelling. It causes stiff and aching joints, fever, headache, loss of appetite, and fatigue.
