How do you feel about your body? Do you love it, or are there parts of it that just don't seem to work as well anymore? If you're like most people, then the answer is probably a little bit of both. But no matter what stage of life we find ourselves in, we can take steps to make our bodies work better and reduce inflammation. We talked with Lindsey DeSoto, RDN, LD about her top four foods at Costco that help reduce inflammation!
1. Kirkland Signature Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains oleocanthal, a powerful antioxidant that has anti-inflammatory properties similar to ibuprofen. It also contains oleic acid, which has been studied to reduce markers of inflammation.
