Nourishment Notes


Turmeric is a spice that contains high amounts of antioxidants. Antioxidants may help to prevent cell damage during a flare-up.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Olive oil contains monounsaturated fats. This type of fat may help to reduce inflammation associated with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.


Salmon contains omega-3 fatty acids. These types of fats are important for heart and brain health, as well as reducing inflammation in the body.
