When it comes to inflammation, our modern day food system is working against us.
Why We Need an Anti-Inflammatory Diet
For the past 50 years, our industrialized food system has increasingly focused on creating convenient foods that are made with inexpensive ingredients, and that last a long-time on the shelf without spoiling.
An inadvertent consequence of these efforts is that the foods we now eat are radically different from those eaten just a hundred years ago.
It takes tens of thousands of years for our genes to change; and, our food supply has changed dramatically in just a fraction of that time.
The resulting mismatch between our modern diets and our ancient genes is causing us to miss important bioactives that were once present in foods to send important messages to our genes to keep us healthy.
These changes to our foods and lifestyles have created a perfect storm that is escalating our crisis of chronic inflammatory health conditions including diabetes, arthritis, asthma, allergies, obesity, heart disease, and more.
The Gene Smart Anti-Inflammatory Diet Plan puts those bioactives back in your diet, and triggers our bodies’ own survival systems to lose weight, increase energy, reduce risk of inflammatory diseases, and live healthier, more fulfilling lives.
STEP 1: EAT THE RIGHT ANTI INFLAMMATORY DIET FOODS
The first step for how to reduce inflammation in the body is to choose natural anti-inflammatory foods that you enjoy. Choose foods that contain high levels of polyphenols, fiber and omega-3. It’s easy (and fun!) when you use the food lists found in our free healthy eating guide. Limit foods containing high amounts of omega 6. These tend to be pro-inflammatory.
How do you know if you’re getting enough (and the right kind of) Omegas? It’s simple – you measure it with our convenient Omega 3 Test.
STEP 2: BOOST YOUR OMEGAS & POLYPHENOLS
Supplements are not a replacement for eating healthy foods; however, they are a valuable tool for getting the right types & levels of important bioactive nutrients that are simply impractical to get each day from foods alone.
Based on an extensive review of the research, Gene Smart recommends three anti-inflammatory nutrition supplements to support your anti-inflammatory diet & lifestyle.
To boost your Omegas, take Omega 3 & Borage Oil supplements. To ensure you are getting enough polyphenols, take Pomegranate & Green Tea Extract. Save time, money and never miss a dose with our Gene Smart monthly delivery program.
STEP 3: EXERCISE TO REDUCE INFLAMMATION
Exercising to reduce inflammation is all about getting your heart rate up for 30 minutes, 5 days a week! Start at 50-75% of your maximum heart rate. Increase to 70% – 85% as you get in shape. Choose activities you enjoy from our aerobics exercise list…just get that heart pumping!
That’s it – three simple steps to getting started on an anti inflammatory diet!
