5 Potent Teas  to Soothe and Heal Inflammation Naturally

Green Tea

Green and matcha teas are sources of the anti-inflammatory polyphenol EGCG, which may reduce inflammation and symptoms associated with IBDs and other inflammation-driven chronic conditions.

 Holy basil Tea

Holy basil, or tulsi, tea may fight inflammation and reduce pain from gout, arthritis, or other inflammatory conditions. It may also lower your cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure levels.

Turmeric Tea

Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, may relieve inflammation and pain when taken in large doses. Yet, it’s unclear whether the amount in turmeric tea would have the same effect.

Ginger Tea

Ginger contains compounds that limit the production of pro-inflammatory substances in your body. It has benefits for blood sugar and cholesterol levels and can reduce arthritis-related pain and inflammation.

Rose hip Tea

Studies show that rose hips reduce pro-inflammatory chemicals and inhibit cox-1 and 2 enzymes, which trigger inflammation and pain.

The bottom line

Drinking tea is an easy and delicious way to enjoy the anti-inflammatory and other health benefits of plants, herbs, and spices.  Try sipping on some of the teas listed above, including green, rosehip, ginger, and turmeric  tea, to reap their inflammation-fighting and health-promoting benefits.
