blueberries

Blueberries are the best nighttime snack because they are loaded with antioxidants, making them a healthy and effective choice to combat inflammation. Doctors recommend having 1/2 cup of these yummy fruits every day to help with inflammation.

choc

Did somebody say chocolate? Dark chocolate contains antioxidants that not only benefit the digestive tract and the heart, but are also filled with anti-inflammatory compounds. So, you can keep eating chocolate and help reduce your inflammation, too!

almonds

Eat a serving of almonds before bedtime and watch as your inflammation fades away. Almonds have vitamin E, which is an antioxidant that neutralizes the free radicals in your body. When these free radicals aren’t neutralized, they attach to molecules of fat, damage the structure and cause inflammation.

popsicles

This is not only a fun way to reduce inflammation, but it’s a great way to get the best anti-inflammatory ingredients available. The best anti-inflammatory popsicles to eat are the ones you can make at home. Just blend together some ripe mangos, a fresh piece of ginger, ground turmeric, maple syrup, cashews, and water and then pour them into popsicle molds. Once they’re done freezing, enjoy your popsicle’s magical anti-inflammatory powers!

yogurt

Yogurt is not only filled with calcium, but it also contains important probiotics that aid with digestion and reduce gut inflammation. You can step up your yogurt by adding blueberries and almonds, two superfoods that are known to help with inflammation.
