More specifically, you want help with Reduce Inflammation with 5 Foods! Natural Anti-Inflammatories- Thomas DeLauer?
what is going on YouTube world it’s Thomas de Lauer and today I’m talking about inflammation again but I’m talking about inflammation how it relates to true old joint pain and how it relates to even arthritis and you might be wondering well I’m pretty young do I really need to be worrying about arthritis the simple answer is yes you do if you’re working out if you’re lifting if you’re loading your spine with weight by squatting you are definitely more susceptible to arthritis so I’m going to break down five easy foods that you probably have laying around your house that are gonna help you out with potentially reducing inflammation and getting your life back now note that these are not absolute positive substitutes for true medication if you need it but they are there as good solid natural ways to start reducing the inflammation within your body so let’s dive in okay the first one are beats C beats are interesting they contain something called Benin and Volga xanthine which are scary sounding names they sound very very serious but the fact is there’s simple anti-inflammatory things what they do is they act on something known as the co X enzyme cyclooxygenase enzymes now if you’ve ever taken an aspirin or an ibuprofen those particular drugs work on the Co X enzymes just like these compounds do now additionally beets also contain something that’s known as betaine and it helps protect your cells from the additional environmental factors that could be causing more pain and stiffness but if you’re someone that’s looking for better performance maybe you’re an ex-athlete maybe you’re someone that wants to get back in the gym well it was also found that people that consumed beet juice before a workout ended up lasting 16% longer in their workouts simply by having beet juice and that’s over placebo so it’s a pretty serious cut and dry result ok the next food that I want to talk about is pineapple a pineapple is very intriguing because it contains something that’s known as bromelain bromelain is an enzyme that helps break down proteins and what we have to understand at its core inflammation is really just rogue proteins that are going around triggering negative results in our bodies if we have too much of a good thing it becomes a bad thing and bromley is an enzyme that breaks down those proteins so if we break down the rogue proteins we can consequently trigger a cascade reduction of inflammation it does the through something that is known as a cysteine proteinase and this is literally just exactly the enzyme that breaks down the proteins so if you’re someone that’s suffering with irritable bowel syndrome or you’re suffering from rheumatoid arthritis or just osteoarthritis you might find that simply incorporating some pineapple even if it’s from the can if it’s soaking in water not the added sugar that you get a pretty serious benefit from it it also helps reduce something known as chemokines but also cytokines which are precursors to inflammation talk about nipping it right in the bud okay next up we’ve got something that you might have sitting in your freezer or maybe in your fridge or you might have even had it last night that’s good old-fashioned salmon or other omega-3 rich fatty fishes basically what they do is they act on that same cyclooxygenase enzyme that I talked about earlier in the video see how it works when you consume omega-3 fatty acids your body converts them into something very unique known as EPA and DHA that’s eco so pentanoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid they help reduce inflammation not only in the body but also in the brain a quick understanding of how the omega-3s do this is they interfere with something known as leukocytes which are cells that are triggered by your immune system you see we need them we need to have that result but we don’t want too much of it this next food that I’m going to talk about is one that you’ve probably had if you went down to the Thai food restaurant or if you were just cooking good old-fashioned stir-fry at home and that’s ginger you don’t need much of this stuff because it’s got something known as ginger Ralls ginger Rawles are the component of ginger that have been shown to reduce inflammation aid in digestion and have a myriad of other health benefits there was a study that took a look at 247 patients pretty big broad scale study okay half of them they gave ginger all two they gave a ginger supplement too and half of them they did not well guess what they found that those that consumed the ginger had get this brace yourself a 40% reduction in pain and inflammation in the joints 40% that’s almost half here the next one that I want to talk about and this is the big one the one that’s associated by and large with some of the biggest reductions in inflammation and some of the biggest most proof found movements towards helping you feel healthier and that’s turmeric you probably have it in your spice rack I can almost guarantee that you do even if you haven’t touched it in two years and the cool thing is it’s probably still good because its shelf life is long the way that turmeric works is it blocks those same cyclooxygenase enzymes cox-1 cox-2 however with one critical difference it only blocks the cox-2 enzyme why do we want that to happen because believe it or not the cox-1 enzyme is the same enzyme that allows the good inflammation to protect your gut and your digestive system have you ever read the label of an ibuprofen bottle or aspirin bottle and it says to be careful of your stomach and it may cause stomach bleeding that’s why if you limit that cox-1 your stomach bleeds it’s not good but turmeric is selective it only limits the cox-2 leaving the cox-1 in place that is absolutely downright amazing but we have to back it up a science right there was a 2010 clinical trial not just a study a full-blown clinical trial that looked at those that consumed turmeric curcumin curcumin is the bioactive component of turmeric well what they found is that over time there was a significant long-term reduction in joint inflammation and associated pain with those that took in the curcumin now what that means is it wasn’t just an immediate result it was something that lasted a long time meaning that it’s truly a sustainable way to modulate inflammation within your body but we have to be fair here and someone has to be a true advocate for your health so I’m not going to lie to you if you or someone that’s on coumadin or a blood thinner you don’t want to take turmeric you see turmeric has a powerful ability to thin the blood so that means if you’re on cumin in or maybe you’re pregnant or if you’re prepping for surgery you want to avoid turmeric sorry it’s not for everyone but it’s a pretty exclusive result and those that can take it truly get to reap the benefits as always if you like these kind of videos make sure you comment and let me know what kind of videos you want to see in the future if you like the videos talking about inflammation I’m happy to do more of those but I need to know exactly what you want to learn about what’s ailing you right now what’s making you a little bit more frustrated when you go into the gym these days let me know so that we can get on it and get the best videos out to you I’ll you in the next video

Reduce Inflammation with 5 Foods! Natural Anti-Inflammatories- Thomas DeLauer
Beets contain betanin and vulgaxanthin, two phytonutrients that reduce inflammation by inhibiting COX enzymes that are known to trigger inflammation. If you’ve ever taken aspirin, aspirin is an anti-inflammatory because it inhibits this same COX enzyme. Beets are also a fairly unique source of a nutrient called betaine, which helps to protect the cells from environmental stress and is known to have significant anti-inflammatory effects. According to researchers, betaine consumption is linked to reduced inflammation and protection against other diseases. In general, beets fight to repair the cell damage caused by inflammation and contain high-levels of magnesium, and a magnesium deficiency is strongly linked with inflammatory conditions.
Pineapples are loaded with nutrients that offer a wide range of health benefits, but they also contain an enzyme known as bromelain. Bromelain has a powerful anti-inflammatory effect on the body and is the reason why pineapple has been touted as one of the best natural anti-inflammatory foods out there. Research has found that due to bromelain’s anti-inflammatory nature, it is effective in treating conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and joint pain. It is also able to break down fibrin, a protein that causes blood clots.
As mentioned previously, cytokine production promotes inflammation and garlic, favorably, contains four sulfuric compounds that exhibit anti-inflammatory action. A 2012 study found that these four compounds are able to inhibit the production of prostaglandins, cytokines and interleukin – all of which promote inflammation. Garlic also possesses amazing antioxidant properties in the form of allyl cysteine and allyldisulphide. These antioxidants inhibit lipid peroxidation (the oxidation or “turning bad” of fats) and free radicals, which prevents oxidative damage caused by free radicals in joints (7)
Ginger contains a particularly potent anti-inflammatory compound called gingerols. Gingerols are the reason why so many sufferers of osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis experience reduced pain levels when they consume ginger regularly. One compared the effects of ginger extract to a placebo in 247 patients with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. The ginger reduced pain and stiffness in knee joints by 40 percent over the placebo! Ginger also contains a compound, known as 6-Shogaol, that inhibits the release of swelling-causing chemicals known to cause damage to neurons. (8,9,10)
Traditionally used in Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic medicine to treat arthritis turmeric/curcumin blocks inflammatory cytokines and enzymes, including cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), which reduces inflammation. A 2010 clinical trial found that a turmeric supplement with 75 percent curcumin provided long-term improvement in pain and function in 100 patients with knee Osteoarthritis! In a small 2012 pilot study, curcumin was shown to reduce joint pain and swelling in patients with active Rheumatoid Arthritis better than diclofenac, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).
