Anti Inflammatory Elixir
Hi there, how has your week been so far? If you’ve joined me recently, or reached out to say hello since my appearance with Trinny Woodall, I’m truly touched to know I’ve ignited a fire within you to find out more about your overall health 🙏🏻
To celebrate, I’ve created a very powerful anti-inflammatory elixir – upon request from many of you experiencing joint pain and inflammation
Your body is an amazing machine, it only needs the smallest of encouragement to begin to soothe and heal naturally. So the goodness in this elixir includes:
Tart Cherries – contain the highest anti-inflammatory content of any food (👌🏻). Cherry juice reduces inflammation in your blood vessels by up to 50%!
Pineapple – contains bromelain, a ‘systemic oral enzyme’ used to treat pain and problems like arthritis. Bromelain may also help your body fight cancer by dissolving ‘fibrin’ (cancer cells hide under fibrin to escape detection, cheeky little buggers!). When fibrin is dissolved, cancer cells become uncloaked and easily detected by your immune system
Spinach – attacks inflammation from every angle! Rich in carotenoids + vitamins C, E, and K, that protect your body from pro-inflammatory substances.
Parsley – great protection from rheumatoid arthritis thanks to its SUPER high chlorophyll and Vitamin C content.
Cacao – contains ‘flavanols’ which work fast to reduce inflammation and blood clotting.
Water – enough said!
☄️Turmeric – an amazing anti-inflammatory, best taken with pepper (see my latest Insta story re: why!)
🍶Extra Virgin Olive Oil – the source of its distinctive aftertaste (called ‘Oleocanthal’) has similar effects as synthetic (more harsh) forms of pain relief like ibuprofen
