Top 5 Anti-Inflammation Foods & Why a Supplement May Be Required

Posted Dec 29 2009 9:43pm

I am a resister. I’ve known about the benefits of Omega-3 for a long time now. However, that does not mean that I take a supplement. Most of my resistance revolves around the daily thing. And, the money it may involve on a monthly basis to continue taking a supplement.

But lately, I’ve been doing a little more in-depth reading on my favorite sites on the Omega-3 supplement question.  The benefits of taking an Omega 3 are vast! (decreased inflammation, heart health, brain and vision health)

Who takes an Omega-3 fish oil supplement?

Who believes that you can get all your requirements from food?

Here are some of the highest Anti-Inflammatory Foods that I am aware of:

Chia Seeds (found out about this via MizFit)

Walnuts

Flax Seeds

Salmon

Some articles from my favorite sites…apologies for sending you all over the internet, but there is enough research out there to support a fish oil supplement, that even I am considering taking one.

Fish Oil Questions Q & A: Dosage

Hammer Nutrition’s Website also has loads of articles of fish oil supplements (link).

How to Choose One Brand?

Mark says that as long as it’s a brand you trust and it’s not rancid, you should be fine.

Honestly, I have no idea how to choose!  However, it is highly likely that I would chose the lower end items – such as the Chia Seeds or the Norweigen Fish Oil on Hammer’s Site simply because of financial reasons.  Anybody want to comment on the reasons why or why not to take a fish oil supplement?  From the reading I’ve done, it seems like a necessity, but choosing one to stick with will be the tricky part for me.
