Many people suffering from Autoimmune diseases experience tiredness, fatigue, insomnia, muscle, and joint pains. The main reason could be the inflammation of the tissues due to the improper functioning of the immune system. Although inflammation is the body’s natural response to infection or trauma, sometimes it can get out of control. Before considering anti-inflammatory medication that comes with other major side-effects, mostly to the gut or digestive system, it might be a good idea to try a more natural and holistic approach. There are many nutrient-dense foods, such as greens and fruits that contain large amounts of antioxidants that help reduce and prevent inflammation.
Here are some of the must-try top 3 anti-inflammatory smoothie recipes that are quick and easy to prepare, not to mention, delicious.
