There is no one anti-inflammatory diet, rather, there are diets designed around foods that are believed to decrease inflammation and which shun foods that aggravate the inflammatory processes. Many antiinflammatory diets are based around whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, fresh vegetables and fruits, wild fish and seafood, grass-fed lean turkey and chicken which are thought to aid in the bodies healing of inflammation. They exclude foods that are thought to trigger inflammation such as refined grains, wheat, corn, full-fat dairy, red meat, caffeine, alcohol, peanuts, sugar, saturated and trans-saturated fats. Once removed, the body can begin healing itself. The philosophical genesis of anti-inflammatory diets dates back to the original healers throughout history who have worked with foods, herbs, teas and other natural remedies to assist the body’s own healing energy. Chronic disease —an illness or medical condition that lasts over a long period of time and sometimes causes a long-term change in the body. C-reactive protein CRP —a marker of inflammation circulating in the blood has been proposed as a method to identify persons at risk of these diseases. Flavonoid —refers to compounds found in fruits, vegetables, and certain beverages that have diverse beneficial biochemical and antioxidant effects. Beginning in the s investigators began exploring physiological mechanisms of fever, weight loss, and acute phase responses to acute and chronic infection.
Today high glycemic-index carbohydrates are not only the major components in virtually all processed foods, but also in potato, rice, and white bread products. However, insulin is a strong activator of each of these enzymes [ 27 — 30 ]. Diverticular Disease Diet. The goal of anti-inflammatory nutrition is to understand how pharmacological targets of inflammation can also be impacted by dietary nutrients. Anti-Drug Abuse Act High adiponectin concentrations are associated with the metabolically healthy obese phenotype. Nature Reviews Immunology. Nutrition Gout Diet Dos and Donts Maintaining a balanced diet, low in uric acid, is critical for lowering the risk of a gout attack. There has not been one dietary change alone in past 30 years that has increased the levels of silent inflammation. It is now well accepted that the immune, nervous, and endocrine systems communicate and interact to control and modulate inflammation and tissue repair.
Obesity is a multifactorial condition resulting from improper balances of hormones and gene expression induced by the diet. Obesity also has a strong inflammatory component that can be driven by diet-induced increases in arachidonic acid. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the molecular targets that can be addressed by anti-inflammatory nutrition. These molecular targets range from reduction of proinflammatory eicosanoids to the modulation of features of the innate immune system, such as toll-like receptors and gene transcription factors. From knowledge of the impact of these dietary nutrients on these various molecular targets, it becomes possible to develop a general outline of an anti-inflammatory diet that can offer a unique synergism with more traditional pharmacological approaches in treating obesity and its associated comorbidities. It is becoming more evident that inflammation plays an important role in the metabolic consequences of obesity, as well as other chronic degenerative conditions [ 1 — 3 ]. However, the understanding of the molecular mechanisms behind the control of the inflammatory process at the genetic level is only beginning to be understood. Pharmacology allows one to determine which parts of the inflammatory process are important in treatment of obesity.
