I'm not smart enough to judge the credibility of this inflammatory index.
It's just another theory......maybe a fad.
But still, it's food for thought.

Default Inflamitory Index

Thanks Iggy - I'm surprised about the beef roast and prunes.
Not happy w/the Rice Bran Oil and Coconut Oil.

Thanks for this post Iggy! I've been taking coconut oil, a spoonful a day for many months now, and I've also been giving some to my dog...will not continue this practice if it's inflammatory

Also eat a non-fat yogurt daily thinking it was a good thing, don't want to ingest foods for health reasons if they're causing inflammation!

Some inflammation is good for you. It is the body's response to viral attack, for one thing. Coconut oil is an anti-viral. Maybe that is due to its inflammatory nature. It is helping the immune system to deal with virus and bacteria.

It's a balancing act. Suppressing inflammation during a cold, can perhaps lengthen the duration.

Very true. Anti-inflammatories are needed, and very much healthy.

I don't get these ratings. Salmon is strongly anti-inflammatory and coconut oil is strongly inflammatory? Maybe it's the antioxidant astaxanthin in salmon or maybe you're not supposed to look at a food, like an oil, by itself since you don't just eat oil, look at your diet as a whole, but surely there's more to this inflammatory foods thing. Because of this rating system people are not eating eggs because they say they're inflammatory.

This rating shows coconut oil to be strongly anti inflammatory but what I've read shows it to be good for inflammation. It has helped by M-I-L's gout and my sister's dogs itchy skin.

-Inflammatory Effects
Coconut oil appears to have anti-inflammatory effects. For the past 20 years it has been known that coconut oil has been beneficial to patients with inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn's disease. Coconut oil appears to have a direct effect in suppressing inflammation and repairing tissue, and it may also contribute by inhibiting harmful intestinal microorganisms that cause chronic inflammation.

Coconut
Quote:
oil contains lauric acid, a fatty acid that serves as a natural antifungal, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory. Some coconut oils can have a very light coconut smell. Lauric acid inside the coconut oil treats external Candida yeast infections, skin irritations, nail fungal infections, athlete’s foot, and even eczema and some skin allergies. It is also good as an all-purpose natural moisturizer for dry skin or sunburn.
