Anti-Inflammatory Ingredients

Kimchi is fermented, and fermented foods have been shown to have huge benefits to the gut microbiome. In short, this can help bring more ‘good’ bacteria into your stomach which in turn can boost your immune system and help reduce inflammation in the body.

Mushrooms have anti-inflammatory properties and are also one of the richest sources of vitamin D outside of meat. Vitamin D is essential in supporting healthy bones, muscles and immunity.

Garlic contains diallyl disulfide, an anti-inflammatory compound that limits the effects of pro-inflammatory cytokines. As a result, garlic can help fight inflammation and may even help prevent cartilage damage from arthritis.

Sesame seeds contain a compound called sesamin that has anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants that can help protect cartilage. They might be small but they are mighty.
