The One Anti-Inflammatory Drink You Should Have First Thing When You Wake Up In The Morning

The food and drink choices we make in the morning can set the stage for a day of great eating. Provided we’re selecting the right anti-inflammatory ingredients, they can also balance our guts with good bacteria and relieve inflammation in the body that can lead to disease and pain. One of the best anti-inflammatory drinks you should have when you wake up in the morning is anything — smoothie or tea — that contains turmeric.

Turmeric For Inflammation

The spice turmeric contains a natural anti-inflammatory compound called curcumin that blocks the molecule NF-kB responsible for inflammation in the cells — a molecule that’s also responsible for a number of chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes, reports Healthline. Incorporating turmeric into your morning routine is a great way to get your daily dose of this anti-inflammatory spice, and curcumin is fat soluble so it helps to enjoy a turmeric drink with a fatty food like avocado or nuts.
