Smoothies can be an excellent way to drink fruit without missing out on the vital fibre, which happens when you resort to drinking fruit juice. As such, it’s best to avoid using juice in your smoothies and stick to using ‘regular’ pieces of fruit and maybe even some vegetables. You can add some yogurt for a fresh sour twist and some healthy probiotics as well.
However, it doesn’t really matter how you get your daily dose of fruits and vegetables, as long as you get it. This is because they contain a lot of antioxidants, which can combat free radical damage, a major driver of inflammation in the body.
7. Ginger Tea
Ginger has been praised for its amazing health benefits for decades and this includes the herb’s natural anti-inflammatory properties. It’s able to prevent the release of inflammatory molecules such as prostaglandin and leukotriene. It also contains something called gingerol, which has been shown to reduce inflammation and soothe sore muscles.
Any drink with ginger, not only ginger tea, will do, but we’d advise you to stick to homemade drinks. That way, you can avoid all the sugar that usually comes with all the drinks that you can buy in the supermarket.
