Nutrition for Injury Recovery

Food_ImageAfter an injury, the body works extremely hard to repair damaged tissue through a three-stage process: Inflammation, Proliferation, and Remodeling. Inflammation is necessary to promote healing to the injured area, but too much can cause additional damage.

How would we increase inflammation to the point of causing more damage? Through diet!

To prevent an increase in inflammation, we should eat foods that are anti-inflammatory such as olive oil, avocados, fish oil, flax oil, fatty fish, and nuts and seeds. It is also important to decrease intake of foods that promote inflammation like processed foods that are high in saturated fats or trans fats and vegetable oils (corn, sunflower, safflower, and soybean oils).
