Chronic inflammation is the root cause of so many diseases and ailments, ranging from acne and allergies to joint pain and eventual brain degeneration. This is why it's so important to eat foods that fight inflammation so that you can stay healthy and happy and keep diseases at bay.
This smoothie recipe is loaded with ingredients that help your body fight inflammation naturally. We used Happy Place tea in this smoothie recipe, but you can substitute Inflammation Relief Tea, Joyful Garden, Ginseng Green Dragon , or plain green tea.
One of the most amazing anti-inflammatory fruits are blueberries, which are also great for keeping your brain healthy and your skin youthful-looking. Another important inflammation-fighting fruit is bananas. A study done at Appalachian State University in North Carolina showed that bananas are as effective as ibuprofen at reducing inflammation.
The addition of turmeric and ginger make this smoothie an inflammation-fighting powerhouse. Plus, it's yummy!

We love Matcha, and we love snacking on these delicious Matcha Bliss Balls. They're lightly spiced, and have the perfect level of sweetness: not too much, just right. They are vegan, gluten-free, and preparation is a breeze.
