Many modern health conditions stem from chronic inflammation. Inflammation isn’t always bad though – it is actually a defense mechanism which allows the body to temporarily create a localized immune response when we are injured, which allows for healing.

The danger occurs when the body is in a constant state of inflammation, which results in an overactive immune response flooding the body with defense cells that then damage tissues. Unfortunately, our modern diet contains a number of foods which promote inflammation in the body. According to Dr. Josh Axe, the top inflammatory foods are:

  • Gluten
  • Sugar
  • Refined grain products
  • Hydrogenated oils (like cottonseed, soy, or corn oil)
  • Genetically modified organisms (GMOs)
  • Artificial sweeteners

Which of the above foods or ingredients do you currently consume regularly?

Which foods from the list above could you swap out for a healthier option?
