The five foods that can beat inflammation

Reading time: 1 minute

Any fruits and vegetables that contain polyphenols protect against inflammation, say researchers at the University of Liverpool’s Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease, but there are five that are especially rich in the micronutrients.

The five are:

* Onions

* Turmeric

* Red grapes

* Green tea

* Acai berries.

These should be in everyone’s diet, say the researchers, but that is even more important as people get older and become even more susceptible to chronic inflammation. As well as eating more of these foods, they could also consider adding resveratrol and curcumin to the list.
