  • fish oil
  • vitamin C
  • vitamin E
  • resveratrol
  • turmeric (curcumin)

Supplements that seem to reduce inflammation include: nettle leaf extract (900 milligrams), bromelain (2,000 milligrams), ginger (900 milligrams), and curcumin (1,200 milligrams). There's not a lot of human data on this point, but there is enough science to suggest that they can be helpful.
