Ever found yourself feeling bloated and uncomfortable? If you just said yes, you're not alone. Some foods tend to leave us feeling bloated. Sitting on the couch and binging on a packet of chips while sipping a soda or ordering in fast-food because you're too lazy to cook up a meal are just some of the factors that leave your body inflamed, making you feel uneasy. Think processed carbs, white bread, pasta, added sugar and excess salt—these are foods that cause inflammation. But it’s key to note that gut health plays a major role to help you feel lighter and better. While eliminating such foods completely isn't the right approach, having a balanced diet with the right proportions is essential.

Over the years, people have become more conscious of a healthy diet that promotes gut health and in turn makes you healthier. However, if you're new to the concept, let us take you through some anti-inflammatory superfoods that are sure to help you feel fit and fine.


They say having a meal with an array of colours present on your plate is a wise idea, and that's just what we mean when we talk about berries.

Naturally rich in antioxidants, berries are delicious yet healthy.
