Ingredients for Anti Inflammation Recipes
Never cooked with avocado oil before? It’s fantastic. Like olive oil, avocado oil has its own delicious flavor, but is still subtle enough to cook with. It offers nutritional benefits like antioxidants and healthy fats.
Avocado oil is pressed from the pulp of an avocado. Almost 70 percent of avocado oil is oleic acid, a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid. Here are more gifts from this amazing fruit/vegetable:
- It increases nutrient absorption so add it to your salad to boost the benefits of the other vegetables
- High in the antioxidant lutein – great for your eyes
- Avocado unsaponifiables may block IL1B protein which causes inflammation
- Avocado unsaponifiables may reduce the stiffness and pain of osteoarthritis
- Penetrates mitochondria and protects against the harmful effects of free radicals
- Improves heart health and reduces cholesterol
Motto? Sneak spinach into your cooking wherever you can! The health benefits are spinach are phenomenal! Spinach is an extremely nutrient-rich vegetable. It is packed with vitamins and minerals, including magnesium, potassium, and vitamins B6, B9, and E. It packs high amounts of vitamin C, vitamin K, carotenoids, iron, calcium, and folic acid.
Additional nutrition benefits:
Digestion: raw spinach is nature’s top aid in helping with regeneration, reconstruction, and cleansing of the intestinal tract. It also reduces heartburn to help you digest food more efficiently.
Heart Health: for cardiac health, few vegetables beat out spinach. Spinach contains high levels of omega-3 fatty acids — important for heart health. It is also rich in folates which lower homocysteine levels — key in lowering the odds of developing heart.
Anti-Cancer: spinach is a good source of lutein and beta-carotene. These two antioxidants limit the growth of cancer cells.
Constipation: spinach is high in fiber making it the go-to vegetables for regulating bowel movements. If constipation is a norm for you, make spinach a staple in your diet
Gastroesophageal reflux disease: spinach is a godsend for treating acid reflux. Baby spinach works best raw or lightly cooked for best results.
Sleep: spinach contains high levels of vitamin magnesium and B6 which helps the body produce serotonin. The hormone serotonin calms and regulates the sleep cycle.
