Description

Though there’s no definition for an “anti-inflammatory diet,” several studies have shown that the Mediterranean diet — or meals rich in healthy fats, high in fiber and full of colorful veggies — can lower levels of pro-inflammatory proteins, says Simone Gibson, a dietitian at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.
