Whether you are experiencing bloating, stomach aches, or soreness, having inflammation is a real pain.

Having high sugar, trans-fats, and oils in your diet can trick your body into thinking it’s under attack, causing the insides of your body to inflame. If inflammation happens too often, it can lead to some very severe health consequences. Luckily, inflammation can be remedied with diet, by both reducing your consumption of foods that cause inflammation, as well as eating foods rich in antioxidants.
