Whether it’s an injury, a virus, ongoing stress, poor diet, pollution, or more, inflammation is your body’s natural immune response to help battle the infection or internal threat. However, when inflammation rages out of control, your entire body is bound to suffer. Check out @functional.foods list of top anti-inflammatory superfoods to help keep your health in check! 🙌🏽
Kale: rich in carotenoids (beta-carotene [pro-vitamin A], lutein, and zeaxanthin [antioxidants for eye health]), vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin B6, folate, bioavailable calcium, non-heme iron, quercetin (mast cell stabilization), and kaempferol. Rich in glucosinolates ➡️ isothiocyanates (inducers of phase II liver detoxification and activate Nrf2 pathways which enhance ability to buffer oxidative stress). Anti-inflammatory via NF-kB pathway and induce apoptosis of diseased cells via p52 gene expression.
Blueberries: rich in vitamin K, vitamin C, manganese, copper, anthocyanins, quercetin, and resveratrol (antioxidant). Also low fructose and low glycemic. Fibrous skin. Berries improve cardiovascular support (via reduced vascular inflammation), insulin sensitivity, and cognitive function (via increased nitric oxide production).
Ginger: anti-nausea, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, carminative, stomachic, expectorant, antitussive, enhances digestive enzyme activity, helps regulate blood sugar, and anti-cancer (via 6-gingerol induction of p53 gene expression).

Are you constantly feeling stressed, moody, forgetful, and lacking in focus and concentration? Perhaps you’re not properly fuelling your brain! 🧠🥑Believe it or not, everything we eat, or don’t eat, will drastically affect our brain function, and subsequently our mood and the way we treat our body. So, what are you fuelling your body with today?

Check out the incredible @chris.rocchio_fit’s list of foods that will help optimise brain function and minimise damage:

1️⃣Avocado: vitamin K & folate - improve flow of blood & oxygen.

2️⃣Blueberries: antioxidants & gallic acid protect brain from oxidative stress; boost concentration & memory (increased blood/oxygen flow).

3️⃣Nuts & Seeds: vitamin E (antioxidant) and choline (precursor to acetylcholine, which helps with drive and focus).

4️⃣Dark Chocolate: magnesium helps manage stress & stimulates neurotransmitters. Small amount caffeine.

5️⃣Eggs: Choline & B-vitamins - memory, focus, brain health.

6️⃣Flax Seeds: Vitamin E - protects from cognitive decline, magnesium, B vitamins. (Make sure to grind to improve digestion)

7️⃣Green Tea/Yerba Matte: Caffeine % L-Theanine, which increases Alpha Wave activity (meaning calmness & clarity).

8️⃣Leafy Greens - magnesium, antioxidants, B-vitamins & carotenoids help prevent dementia and optimize brain function. Folic acid = mental clarity.

9️⃣Fatty Fish: omega-3s keep brain function optimal (clarity, focus, memory, mood). Sources: Salmon, trout, mackerel, sardines, etc.
