2. Eat More Fish
Cold water fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, and sardines are extremely high in omega 3 fatty acids, compounds that can stifle inflammation. Aim to add three servings a week to your diet; if that’s too difficult, consider taking fish oil supplements.
Since fish oil is a concentrated form of omega 3s, taking a capsule a day could bring remarkable results: some studies show that fish oil supplements boost the immune system and protect against heart disease while they reduce inflammation.
However, speak to your doctor before you add them to your daily management plan, since fish oil can interfere with certain medications, like blood thinners.
