The effect of drinks on our health cannot be underestimated. Here’s a list of drinks that will help you improve chronic inflammation. Aside from eating right in terms of good fats, vegetables, fruit and fish, beverages can also help combat inflammation.
An important consideration for anti-inflammatory drinks is skipping ones high in sugar and saturated fat. Here are a few must-have drinks to include in your diet for a healthy lifestyle (excerpt from EatingWell)
Green tea contains epigallocatechin 3 gallate, or EGCG, which has anti-inflammatory benefits, according to a research paper published in 2023. It’s important, however, not to add sugar as that’s linked to even higher levels of inflammation.
100% orange juice contains natural sugars along with Vitamin C and thiamin.
Orange juice is said to be linked to a reduction of interleukin 6, which is a marker of inflammation.
According to a study in the Journal of Food and Nutrition Research, adults who drank 750 millimetres or 3 cups of orange showed better anti-inflammatory and oxidative stress markers.
Pomegranate has polyphenols, which are proven to have anti-inflammatory benefits. Drinking pomegranate juice is also said to help with lowering blood pressure.
Any combination of green juice, such as watercress, spinach or kale, is also great for inflammation. Watercress contains phenylethyl isothiocyanate or PEITC, which has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Beetroot is a natural source of betalains and plays a role in eliminating oxidative and nitrative stress, which provides anti-inflammatory benefits. Beet juice can often be purchased directly or made at home.
