5 Anti-Inflammatory Drinks
If you already start the day with a cup of black coffee, you can safely continue with it. An American study found that test subjects who drank at least one and a half cups of coffee a day had 54 percent less risk of developing diabetes 2 than those who did not drink coffee.
Why is that? Researchers found that the inflammation marker was lower in coffee drinkers than it was in non-coffee drinkers.
Freshly Squeezed Juice
A glass of daily orange juice reduces the risk of developing inflammatory rheumatic diseases. Fruit juice contains sugar, but as long as you follow a healthy diet and avoid too much added sugar, a small glass of juice is good for you.
Alternative to Orange Juice
The citrus fruits are not the only morning juice that reduces inflammation. Pomegranate juice has the same health benefits as orange juice. Again, it is recommended to stick to a single glass a day.
Tea with a Twist
Turmeric is proclaimed as a new wonder ingredient. The ingredient is obvious to use in anti-inflammatory drinks, and you can make your own turmeric tea to start the day. Mix 1 teaspoon turmeric powder in a cup of warmed almond milk and use honey to sweeten the drink.
How do you get lots of anti-inflammatory ingredients into one drink? You blend them together. Make a morning smoothie of anti-inflammatory ingredients: kale, pomegranate juice, ginger, strawberry, avocado, banana or linseed.
