When finding relief from pain, be it a neck pain or back pain, your first reaction is to grab a pain killer from the medicine cabinet, right? But did you know that there are certain drinks that can provide you with some soothing relief for your pain? And no, I’m not talking about beer or some alcoholic drink. There are drinks made with natural ingredients that actually combat pain and inflammation. And when you drink them regularly, it not only helps ease your pain, but there are other health benefits that come from them. Anyways, here are 3 delicious drinks that you can include in your arsenal for fighting pain:
Tart Cherry Juice. This anti-inflammatory super hero is known to reduce plasma inflammation in your blood stream, inflammation in your abdominal fat, and heart-related inflammation. This is due to its rich source of anthocyanins, which are antioxidants with powerful anti-inflammatory powers. And thus, less inflammation equates to less pain. This drink is known to reduce joint pain, in addition to pain generated by arthritis.
Green Tea. Consuming this tea on a regular basis has been found to positively affect a healthy life due to its rich source of flavonoids, which are also known for its anti-inflammatory benefits. Research has suggested that this tea could possibly be an effective treatment for various types of pain, including rheumatoid arthritis.
Blueberry Juice. And finally, drinking this on a regular basis has the effect of reducing inflammation and pain, due to its rich source of anthocyanins, like how tart cherry juice works. And on a side not, consuming those yummy blueberries on a daily basis also has that effect of building your anti-inflammatory responses within your body.
So next time you go shopping for pain killers in the pharmacy aisle of your local super market, why not grab some of the drinks discussed in today’s blog post instead? These natural drinks have the power to protect your body from the ravages of inflammation and pain.
