Grains like brown rice, quinoa, and millet play a significant role in an anti-inflammatory diet. Brown rice is high in magnesium, along with the antioxidant selenium, which protects cells from damage. Quinoa is a complete plant-based source of protein. It is also a rich source of magnesium that reduces inflammation, and the anti-inflammatory vitamin E. Millets contain phytonutrients that fight inflammation in multiple ways. It is an excellent source of antioxidants. They are especially rich in phenols, which are some of nature’s most powerful compounds. Its abundance of phenolic acids and flavonoids reduces the risk of chronic diseases by reducing inflammation. Flavonoids and phenolic compounds in millet inhibit pro-inflammatory cytokines, promoting production of beneficial, anti-inflammatory molecules.
