Easy Anti-Inflammatory Drinks You Can Make At Home

What about anti-inflammatory drinks?
Although a general overall anti-inflammatory diet is a good lifestyle change if you suffer from chronic inflammation, anti-inflammatory drinks are easy to prepare at any time of day. They also digest much faster than most anti-inflammatory foods.

One drink that often gets overlooked is water. Water hydrates cleanse by flushing out toxins in the body and can help soothe inflammation. You can also elevate your plain glass of water by adding lemon or ginger. Lemon has alkalizing properties, and ginger contains gingerols that have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Not a fan of cold water? Make it into a tea! Lemon and ginger tea are delicious with a touch of honey, and you can even add in some turmeric for an extra anti-inflammatory punch.

Celery juice has been at the forefront of the healthy juicing movement lately, and for good reason. Along with its vast array of healing benefits, celery juice is full of powerful anti-inflammatory properties and has been shown to reverse inflammation by starving pathogens.

Celery Juice

Ingredients:
1 bunch organic celery

Directions:
Rinse the celery and run it through a juicer. Drink immediately for best results.

Alternatively, chop the celery and blend it in a high-speed blender until smooth. Strain well and drink immediately.

Tips: Drink 475 mL (16 oz) first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. If you find the taste of straight celery juice too strong, you can adjust the flavor. As you get used to it, keep increasing the ratio of celery; the greatest benefits come when celery juice is consumed on its own.

Traditional chai tea – not the boxed, pre-made variety – is made from a blend of super-herbs known for their anti-inflammatory benefits (think cinnamon, clove, and cardamom). Mix these wonderful herbs with turmeric and you have a Golden Chai Latte that will not only keep you warm but will help reduce inflammation while tasting super delicious!
