natural anti inflammatories

Hi - I seem to remeber something about Cod liver oil assisting in being an AI. Is this the case or am I misled on this? Are there other natural AI's that can be introduced to the diet to reduce the changes of inflamation of tendons etc.

Thanks for any advice.

Chris

Re: natural anti inflammatories

Didn't know about the tumeric. Thanks. I look forward to hearing more examples. I take Hyland's homeopathic arnica montana 30X sublingually just after a workout, and throughout the day as directed on the bottle. It has helped me with swelling, and mitigated muscle soreness.

Re: natural anti inflammatories

Fish oil is definitely one.

Most stuff with a high glycemic index carbs are inflammatories... so take that into account (keeping the carbs low especially high glycemic ones).

Re: natural anti inflammatories

woo hoo - more curries!

Is cod liver oil classed as a "fish oil"?

Interesting in the high GL impact - how does that work? How high is high - high for us or high for normal people? ie are we talking dunkin donuts high or bananas high?

Thanks

The w3 in fishoil, cod liver oil etc has anti-inflammatory properties. Fish oil has proportionally more w3 while cod liver oil has the added benefit of Vit A and D.

w6 found in most seed oils has inflammatory properties. Your body needs both. However our diet is unbalanced with w6 so look to reduce your intake. Namely limit seeds and nuts (sunflower, hazelnuts), seed oil, and factory farmed meat.

Up your intake of oily fish, grass fed meat (and milk if you like), flax seed and walnuts.

As Stephen said reduce your intake of high GL carbs. Replace these with vegetables, fruit ( and whole gains if you like) and you get the added benefit of all the antioxidants and micro nutrients.

You can do all of the above without resorting to any supplement. If you want to add a supplement fish oil should be your first choice.

What about pumpkin seeds? Do they need to be limited also?
