Smoothies That Help Inflammation

Symptoms of chronic inflammation present in many ways. Most relate inflammation to joint or muscles aches, but there are other symptoms that may surprise you. Do you feel tired, fatigued or unusually sleepy during the day? Do you suffer from insomnia at night? Do you have digestive tract problems? These may be signs of your body reacting to chronic inflammation.

Most people are hesitant to move directly to medications for relief. Anti-inflammatory medication can have side effects, primarily affecting the digestive system. A more natural approach could be a good place to start.

According to Dr. Dan-Adrian Oniga from the International Institute For Ethical Health Care, “it’s been proven that certain types of food, especially greens and fruits, contain large amounts of antioxidants that help reduce and prevent inflammation.” Here are his top 5 anti-inflammatory smoothie recipes. They are easy to make and taste great! Find more in his article about different types of inflammation in this article he’s written for
