Food Pyramid

Topics like inflammation are right up there with sugar, toxicity, vaping, MMJ and Keto these days. You’ve probably heard the laundry list of ailments it’s tied to: stress, fatigue, acne, sleeping problems, gut issues, and even life-threatening conditions, like heart disease.

The good news is that you can eat your way to better health, but you need to know that, like anything else, the quality of the food that you are putting in your body will most definitely show on the outside. If you are putting junk in, your performance will reflect that. So, stop kidding yourself, you are most assuredly exactly what you eat!!! Sure, turmeric and some CBD’s get a lot of the glory when it comes to fighting inflammation, but how many Frappaccino’s are you drinking per week anyway??

Our own in house PhD lead the way to help create the proper nutritional and eating pyramid, says Mordini. He is a trained molecular biologist and human genome project affiliate.

Mordinisay’s, “It’s kind of like the triangle you memorized in elementary school that was provided by the AMA, FDA, Milk Counsel, ADA only different, because this time we don’t have anyone influencing our opinion…...hmmmm.”

Leafy greens and healthy fats

What’s the most important food for lowering inflammation? The more spinach, broccoli, romaine, cabbage, collard, and kale, the better. The reason? Greens are loaded with antioxidants, which rejuvenate weak cells, he says—sort of like how that mid-afternoon siesta can bring you back to life. “Besides leafy greens, the most powerful inflammation-fighting foods are salmon, walnuts, fermented foods—such as kimchi—garlic” he says. So how much is enough? “Ideally, you want a serving of fermented foods and good nuts everyday,” he explains.

As far as turmeric and garlic, just incorporating them into your cooking or juices isn’t enough for prevention because they lack bioavailability, so, if you want to step things up, you might want to consider systemic IV’s to really feel a difference or just enjoy life a little more.

Produce that’s worth the effort

The second tier of the food pyramid provides pineapple, papaya, beets, ginger, flax, and blueberries. Bromelain, an enzyme in pineapple and papaya, is both an inflammation-fighting agent and digestive aid, so try eating one serving of either fruit per day. He also recommends a cup of blueberries every day. (Quercetin, a flavonoid in the fruit, is so powerful that it’s been linked to fighting cancer.) As for beets, incorporating them into your bowls two to three times a week—like greens, they help repair damaged cells.

And if you’re serious about addressing inflammation, we recommend introducing a natural anti inflammatory into your daily regimen and drinking plenty of water.

It’s not a lot, but if you’re drinking enough water, getting enough sleep and balancing your regulatory system with a good botanical extract like Zro+ products it’s just a matter of tweaking what you’re already doing.

Limit nightshades

Not all vegetables fight inflammation. In fact, for some, it’s best to limit consumption of nightshades tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, and potatoes. While some people have no problem with these type of veggies at all, others can skip them to avoid any potential gut issues.

The best way to know? Cut them out of your diet for a while.

At the tip-top of the pyramid

At the top of the food pyramid are the list of what to limit: wheat, dairy, sugar, corn, soy, and peanuts. “It’s absolutely essential to avoid processed and refined foods—AKA junk food,” he says.

And if you’re a meat eater, make sure you’re eating grass-fed meat. “Meat that is commercially raised with hormones, antibiotics, and fed with soy and corn, can contribute to inflammation, toxicity and more,” Mordini says.

Keep in mind that following the anti-inflammatory food pyramid should be used as a helpful guide—not something to stress over. After all, if you have healthy genes, you have half the battle won… the other part that you must take seriously, is eating nutritious whole foods and filling up on lots of greens. Chances are, you were a good listener in your 6th grade health class, so get over being lazy about it and get on with being healthy about it!
