Nutrition and Supplements: More Inflammatory Foods To Avoid

Posted by Ameriden International on 11th Jul 2017

In our last blog, we discussed inflammatory foods to avoid in order to feel healthier. Today, we would like to further expand upon this subject. You wouldn’t fill your high-end sports car with cheap motor oil, so it’s important to fuel your body with high-quality foods. At Ameriden International, we offer a variety of high-quality health supplements, including Rosavin® and The Original Olive Leaf Extract®. If you are interested enough to improve your health with our supplements, then you might enjoy optimizing your health through other means as well. We’re confident that your overall sense of well-being will benefit from a combination of our high-quality, DNA-tested supplements and a healthy diet. By eliminating inflammatory foods from your diet, you could impact your health in a positive way. Avoid the following inflammatory foods below:

Vegetable Oils

Vegetable oils such as soy, sunflower, safflower, corn, and palm oil contain high concentrations of inflammatory fats, which are omega-6 fats. Additionally, these oils also contain low amounts of omega-3 fats, which are anti-inflammatory. Try cooking with extra-virgin olive oil instead, which is rich in oleuropein and heart-healthy fats, which are anti-inflammatory. We love the health benefits of olives so much that we created our Original Olive Leaf Extract®, which is available capsule form. Some foods containing high amounts of vegetable oils include barbecue sauce, crackers, bread, potato chips, salad dressings, and mayonnaise. Read the label to distinguish its ingredients and choose products made with healthier oils instead.

Fried Foods

Although many believe that any food tastes better fried, fried food is extremely inflammatory. Fried foods are cooked at high temperatures, which results in high levels of advanced glycation end products (AGEs). If you have ever eaten chicken fried steak or chicken tenders, you may have experienced indigestion afterwards, which is a sign of inflammation.

Refined Flour

The process of refining wheat flour strips strips it of its slow-digesting fiber and healthy nutrients. Refined flour causes inflammation during the digestion process by spiking your blood sugar and insulin levels. Processed flour is often present in white bread, pizza, pasta, flour tortillas, breakfast cereals, and more. Your best option is to choose 100 percent whole grain food instead, which are easily available at your local grocery store.


There’s no doubt about it; cheese is one of the most delicious foods on earth. Many dairy products, including milk and soft cheeses are high in inflammation-friendly saturated fat. Certain dairy products can actually reduce your levels of beneficial bacteria in your gut, which are necessary for reducing inflammation. As many as one in four adults experience difficulty digesting dairy products and have to give them up altogether. If you experience gas or bloating after consuming dairy products, you could be lactose intolerant. Even if you aren’t lactose intolerant, you could try reducing the amount of dairy products in your diet for optimal health.

When you eat healthy, exercise, and take health supplements, your overall sense of well-being could increase. Our safe diet supplements at Ameriden International could be just what you need. Check out our health supplements online today.
