      Try these teas to fight inflammation

      Herbal teas have been known for many centuries and have myriad medicinal uses. Here’s a look at how you can harness this ancient knowledge and gain relief from inflammation. Plants, herbs and spices can be infused into teas and this provides a natural way to battle inflammation.

      Green tea

      Though this comes from the same plant as black tea, this is processed differently enabling it to retain its green color. This is rich in polyphenols which are compounds that can effectively fight flare-ups linked to inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. It also works for inflammation-driven conditions that include heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and even certain cancers.

      Basil tea

      This has been used in plenty in Asia for medicinal purposes. It contains anti-inflammatory properties that can cause a drop in blood sugar, cholesterol, and blood pressure levels. They work against inflammation by inhibiting cox-1 and cox-2 enzymes that are responsible for generating inflammatory compounds that trigger pain, swelling, and inflammation.

      Ginger tea

      Ginger contains over 50 different antioxidant compounds and studies showed that this brought down fasting blood sugar, triglycerides, total cholesterol, and inflammatory blood markers. Osteoarthritis patients too benefitted from taking ginger. Ginger tea tastes delicious, add this to your daily routine.

      Rose hip tea

      Rose hips are the coral-red, round, edible pseudo-fruits that you find once a rose bush loses its flowers. This has been known for its medicinal properties for over 2000 years. Rose hip is rich in phenolic compounds, the powerful anti-inflammatory antioxidants which save your cells from damage.

      Tips on making herbal teas

      Make sure that the quality of ingredients that you purchase is good. While brewing a fresh cup of tea, choose to use loose leaves with a tea infuser instead of a tea bag. This is because loose leaf teas have more antioxidants compared to tea bags. Steeping tea for five minutes will do.
