Ginger

Ginger’s anti-inflammatory benefits are well known and well studied. Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger. It’s responsible for much of ginger’s medicinal properties. Ginger has been shown to be effective against inflammation, osteoarthritis, jaw pain, rheumatism, and inflammation-induced pain. It has been shown to help with muscle pain, especially in women with menstrual pain.

Lime

Lime is rich in vitamin c, which is a powerful antioxidant that will help your body reduce its inflammation by getting rid of free radicals in the body. Lemon will do the same, so use that if you have it or if you prefer the taste!

Mint

Both spearmint and peppermint are great for digestion and gut health, so use whichever mint you prefer or is easier to find. Has your mom ever told you to drink mint tea on an upset stomach? That's why! Your gut health is intricately linked to your overall health, including inflammation. If your gut is healthy, your body has less reason to create inflammation!

Beyond, health benefits, it also adds so much flavor! If there's any culinary tip that I have learned over the years, it's using fresh herbs. If you want to take any dish or drink to restaurant level, use fresh herbs!

The Ingredients You Need

For 1-2 Servings:

How to Make Your Inflammation-Fighting Mocktail

1) First, brew your inflammation relief tea. Whichever method you use, our general recommendation is 1 teaspoon of tea to 1 cup water. You can use any of these methods to brew your iced tea, but I decided to use the quick and dirty method using my favorite brewer.

If you want to use the quick and dirty method, add 1 heaping teaspoon of the tea into 1 cup of hot water for 5 minutes, strain and add in ice to cool.

If you decide to use the cold brew method, add 1 heaping teaspoon Inflammation Relief tea to your teapot with strainer lid and cover with 1 cup of water. Place the fridge for at least 2 hours.

2) Next, add your limes, mint and ginger to a large glass jar (with a lid). Muddle them all until nice and smooshed! This is also where you should add your sweetener, if you choose to use it. Muddling will help release all these awesome flavors and nutrients. The aroma will blow you away!

3) Finally, add ice and your brewed tea on top of your muddled fruits, close the lid and give it a nice shake. Top with sparkling water!

You can drink it straight from the jar or you can strain and pour into a short glass, which is what I decided to do. This will make about 2 portions, so share it with a friend!
