Baltic news, News from Latvia, BNN.LV, BNN-NEWS.COM, BNN-NEWS.RUOur modern and fast-paced way of life often leads us to a diet that includes unhealthy, imbalanced food with high concentrations of fats and sugars. This kind of diet often causes swellings, increase the sense of pain and lead to other unpleasant consequences.

Sometimes medicine is not enough to stop pain. LIDO dieting specialist Alise Kindzule recommends ten food products that can help relieve pain and improve the quality of life.

Dark-coloured fruits and berries

Dark-coloured fruits and berries like blueberries, cherries and red grapes help relieve the organism of all kinds of harmful substances, reduce different kinds of pain. The positive effect cherries have on arthritis pains has even been medically proven. They increase the concentration of melatonin hormone in the blood, which helps relax and recover after injuries and illnesses.

Caffeine-containing beverages (in reasonable amounts)

Caffeine is one of the most popular stimulants used around the globe. It is found in coffee, tea, chocolate, cocoa, cola and all kinds of food additives. It is proven that a moderate amount of caffeine has a positive effect on the heart, blood vessels, nervous system. It also helps combat depression and reduce the risk of getting cancer. Caffeine can also help speed up metabolism. It is also used in production of different cold medicines.

Green vegetables

They can improve metabolism, regulate hormonal levels, reduce the level of stress hormones after physical activities and reduce the risk of cancer and swelling.

Especially useful fruits and vegetables

When doing a lot of sports, it is a good idea to include starch-containing products on the menu. These products help restore energy reserves lost during training more quickly. Potatoes are a rich source of starch. Not only are potatoes a rich source of Vitamin C, but they also contain nearly all nutrients necessary to maintain life. Fruits that contain high amounts of anti-oxidants are also invaluable. Melons are great for restoring damaged muscle tissues. The same can be said for pineapples and kiwi, which greatly help combat pain and swelling. Don’t forget about bananas – they are especially rich in potassium.

Fish

In order to improve protein synthesis and reduce swelling, you need to eat fish. Omega-3 fatty acids help improve cell interaction. These fatty acids help reduce swelling, migraine pain, muscle pains and help with arthritis and sclerosis. Omega-3 fatty acids also help with chronic back and neck pains.

Nuts

To speed up restoration of damaged tissues, it is recommended to eat almonds and other nuts. Almonds are a rich source of Omega-6. It is a good idea to eat some after intensive training – Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids help restore bone tissue. Combining different nuts gives the best effect – almonds and Brazilian nuts help maintain hormonal balance and walnuts help combat fatigue.

Fermented dairy products and probiotics

Use of fermented dairy products improves digestion, reduces swelling and pains, strengthens the immune system and helps the organism recover a lot quicker. Probiotics can be found in unsweetened yoghurt, fermented milk products (kefir, buttermilk), as well as pickled and fermented vegetables.

Eggs

Eggs should be consumed to speed up cell restoration and strengthen the body’s immune system. Eggs are a rich source of proteins, which are consumed by the organism almost completely. They also contain vital amino acids that are not found in the human body naturally, so eggs are a must to consume regularly.

Seasoning

The specialist recommends using different seasoning to reduce pain. These include turmeric, ginger or cinnamon. They all help against swelling, muscle and other types of pain. Three grams of cinnamon can help stimulate metabolism and improve one’s mood.

Water and green tea

To reduce muscle and other types of pain, as well as reduce the loss of energy, it is a good idea to keep in mind water. It has been proven that an adequate amount of water consumed during intense physical training can help reduce muscle pains. Water is necessary to maintain appropriate body temperature and proper muscle and heart function. Green tea with ginger can help flush toxins from the body and enrich the organism with valuable anti-oxidants. Green tea is especially good for reducing joint pains and arthritis.
