Turmeric & Ginger Smoothie
This yummy smoothie is one of my favorites ways to get healthy benefits with a great flavor. Turmeric & Ginger smoothie is loaded with anti-inflammatory components, which is great for my endometriosis. One of my wellness goals is to always make sure that I am eating foods that work for my body not against it.
You probably have already heard of Turmeric but do you really know the benefits that it has. Turmerics’ main component is curcumin. Curcumin is a natural anti-inflammatory agent
Studies show that it can aid in the management of oxidative and inflammatory conditions, metabolic syndrome, arthritis, anxiety, and hyperlipidemia. It may also help in the management of exercise-induced inflammation and muscle soreness, which can help to enhance recovery and performance for active people.
Ginger is a pretty amazing spice also. Ginger has been used for many years for numerous ailments, such as colds, nausea, arthritis, migraines, and hypertension. It has great antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-nausea components.
Coconut water is a great way to add electrolytes like potassium, sodium, and manganese. It is low in sugar and calories, refreshing and hydrating.
Pineapples contain Bromelain, a digestive enzyme. Bromelain has anti-inflammatory properties. The vitamin C in pineapple also may help keep inflammation levels low.
