Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie Recipe

February, 2021

Inflammation is the immune system’s response to illness or injury. Stressful external factors could cause inflammation. Traumatic events, chronic work stress, poor diet and a sedentary lifestyle are some of the factors which lead to chronic inflammation.

 

This low-level chronic inflammation makes us more susceptible to diseases including depression, type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer's disease.

There are simple ways to reduce and control inflammation levels such as eating more plant based diet, consuming more green leafy vegetables, meditation and more. One of our favourite methods is green smoothies. Green leafy vegetables support eliminating toxins and balancing inflammation levels with their antioxidant properties. Our Green Power Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie is easy to prepare and a good alternative for breakfast.
