How to Combat Chronic Inflammation to Help You Live Longer

August 25, 2015 2 min read

Living a long and healthy life is something that most of us hope for. We try to stay educated on how to treat our bodies from the inside out and follow through the best we can. But there are some things that aren't spelled out clearly, and insulin sensitivity is one of them.

Did you know keeping your insulin in check can help limit your risk for a variety of degenerative diseases that have the capability of preventing your lifespan? This is because insulin resistance is the starting point for almost all chronic diseases because it increases chronic inflammation and kickstarts the rate at which your body begins to age. A recent study even found that having low levels of insulin was the best predictor for living over 100 years.

So what's the best way to ensure you don't run into chronic inflammation? The simple but much-loved combo of diet and exercise is the way to go. Since diet is about 80 percent of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, it's important to stay away from processed foods which are filled with inflammatory ingredients including refined sugars and processed fats like trans fats and vegetable oils. Also try incorporating anti-inflammatory foods like blueberries, garlic, leafy greens and shiitake mushrooms.

It's also important to maintain an active lifestyle.  Along with regular exercise, like HIIT training, it's necessary to keep your body moving throughout the day. The average American sits about 10 hours a day, and research shows that even 60 minutes of exercise cannot balance out all that static time. What you need to do is take a break every hour, making sure to get out of your office chair about every 50 minutes.

What foods and activity do you incorporate into your lifestyle to prevent inflammation?
