IMMUNE SYSTEM: An army of cells that defend your body from invaders of any kind, inflammation in the body can weaken our immune system.
FOOD AND INFLAMMATION
FOODS THAT CAN CAUSE INFLAMMATION
All high GI foods raise our blood sugar, which in turn increases the amount of insulin in the bloodstream. When insulin levels rise, it causes a large amount of eicosanoids (which can either apro-or elevate anti-inflammatory response) to be produced, resulting in an unbalanced skew of pro-inflammatory eicosanoids.
Consuming a diet high in sugar/high-fructose corn syrup drives inflammation. It may also counteract the anti-inflammatory benefits of omega-3 fatty acids.
