Outsmarting Inflammation: How Diet and Lifestyle Impact Your Wellbeing

Want to learn more?

Inflammation is your body’s way of telling you something isn’t right. Ever wake up feeling sore all over for no reason? That’s inflammation making your joints creak. Or maybe you enjoy a big meal and suddenly feel like you’re carrying a food baby. Yep, that’s inflammation again, making you bloat up. Inflammation can affect everything from our physical health to our mood, so it’s essential to keep it under control and ensure it only comes into play when it’s needed.

Now, you might be thinking “if it’s so bad why would it be needed?” and the answer is it’s not always bad. Your body actually needs inflammation to respond effectively to injuries and infections and kickstart the healing process.

The key to outsmarting inflammation is getting this balance right and making sure that it only occurs when it’s needed.

The Role of Diet and Lifestyle in Inflammation

Diet and lifestyle play important roles in either fueling or mitigating inflammation within our bodies. What we eat and how we live can have a massive impact on our inflammatory processes and our susceptibility to various health conditions. Diets high in processed foods, refined sugars, unhealthy fats, and artificial additives have been linked to increased inflammation. Whereas diets rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats, such as those found in fish and nuts, have anti-inflammatory properties and can help reduce inflammation.

Lifestyle choices such as physical activity, stress management, and sleep quality also play significant roles in regulating inflammation. Regular exercise has been shown to reduce inflammation by improving circulation, reducing stress, and supporting overall immune function. In light of this, it’s no surprise that chronic stress and poor sleep quality can contribute to increased inflammation levels, making it essential to prioritize stress-reducing activities and good sleep hygiene.

By making some small but significant changes to your diet and lifestyle you can reduce your risk of inflammation-associated conditions. These conditions include;

  • Arthritis: Diets high in processed foods and saturated fats can exacerbate joint inflammation.
  • Cardiovascular Disease: Diets high in trans fats, refined sugars, and sodium can promote inflammation and increase the risk of heart disease. Sedentary lifestyles and smoking also contribute to inflammation and cardiovascular risk.
  • Type 2 Diabetes: Diets high in sugary beverages and refined carbohydrates can worsen inflammation and insulin resistance. 
  • Digestive Disorders: Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are all related to chronic inflammation of the digestive tract. 


Practical Strategies to Reduce Inflammation Through Diet and Lifestyle Changes


Embrace an Anti-inflammatory Diet and Limit Inflammatory Foods

Incorporate plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats like those found in olive oil, avocados, and fatty fish. These foods are rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds that can help quell inflammation. You’ll also need to cut back on processed foods, refined sugars, unhealthy fats, and artificial additives, which can fuel inflammation in the body. Always go for whole, minimally processed foods whenever possible.

Include Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties and can help balance the body’s inflammatory response so they’re pretty important! You can up your levels of Omega-3 with foods such as salmon, walnuts, chia seeds, and flax seeds into your diet. 

Spice it Up with Turmeric

Turmeric contains curcumin which is a potent anti-inflammatory compound. You can turmeric to your meals or/and consider taking a turmeric supplement such as our Liposomal Curcumin to help reduce inflammation.

Stay Hydrated

Drinking plenty of water throughout the day will keep your body hydrated and flush toxins out for your body. Herbal teas and coconut water are also good options that provide additional health benefits

Manage Stress

Incorporate stress-reducing practices such as meditation, yoga, deep breathing exercises, or spending time outdoors into your day. Chronic stress can contribute to inflammation, so finding ways to manage stress is crucial for maintaining overall health.

Prioritize Sleep

Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep per night to keep your immune system strong and reduce inflammation. Exactly how many hours you need depends on each person, but you’ll know if you’ve had a restful sleep when your alarm goes off! If you struggle to get to sleep, a relaxing bedtime routine and a comfortable sleep environment can really do the trick. Check out our post on Tips for Your Best Sleep Yet!

Exercise Regularly

Getting moving each day will promote circulation, reduce stress, and support your overall immune function. Even if you just go for a 15 minute walk daily, it’s better than nothing! And you’ll likely up the ante to 60 minutes before you know it. For  maximum benefits, a combination of cardiovascular exercise, strength training, and flexibility exercises is ideal.

Maintain a Healthy Weight

Excess body weight can contribute to inflammation and increase the risk of chronic diseases. Adopting a balanced diet and staying physically active with the above tips can help you to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

Practice Mindful Eating

Always pay attention to your body’s hunger and fullness cues. Are you hungry or just bored? Swap the nights of mindlessly snacking in front of the TV for an evening walk and choose nourishing foods that support your health goals. Emotional eating (i.e. comfort eating!) is  another thing to avoid as it further contributes to inflammation and unhealthy eating patterns.

The Power Of Liposomal Delivery

One of the commonly used traditional remedies to combat inflammation are turmeric capsules paired with black pepper for enhanced absorption. While this combination is highly effective, it has poor bioavailability when ingested orally. This means that much of the curcumin is quickly metabolized and excreted from the body before it can be fully utilized. 

The solution we’ve found for this is to create a Liposomal Curcumin version. The liposomal delivery process means that up to 5 times more curcumin is absorbed by the body. This happens thanks to it being protected within tiny bubbles called liposomes which help it get into our bloodstream where it can do its job and provide maximum antioxidant effects.


Integration Tips: Fun and Practical Ways to Use Liposomal Curcumin Every Day

We recommend 10 squirts/drops of Liposomal Curcumin daily which you can take all at once or spread throughout the day. You can add a dose to your morning smoothie or juice, drizzle some on your salad for some extra flavor and those anti-inflammatory benefits, or blend some into your post-workout protein shake or Super Greens smoothie to support muscle recovery and reduce inflammation after exercise. Its fast-absorbing formula will be a perfect addition to your recovery routine.

Another way we love to add Liposomal Curcumin into our day is with some fun DIY wellness shots! Combine Liposomal Curcumin with some freshly squeezed lemon juice, ginger, and a pinch of cayenne pepper, then simply knock it back for a refreshing start to your day!
