there are great anti-inflammatory foods out there, so much awesome information!
here's a nice red meat example - roast beef, anti-inflammatory, high in zinc. yum.
Clinical, immunological, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant roles of zinchttp://www.sciencedirect.com/science/ar ... 6507002458
"Zinc is also an antioxidant and has anti-inflammatory actions. We have reported decreased plasma zinc, increased plasma oxidative stress markers and increased generation of inflammatory cytokines in the elderly subjects which were corrected by zinc supplementation."
Zinc and insulin sensitivity.http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1375070
"Zinc supplementation seems to have beneficial effects on glucose homeostasis."
Effect of zinc supplementation on serum leptin levels and insulin resistance...http://www.springerlink.com/content/k810m42630285157/
"Insulin did not change in the placebo group, whereas there was a significant decrease of this hormone in the supplemented group"
my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
