Inflammation is the body’s response to injury. It works to heal wounds, but it can also play a role in some chronic diseases… It is the body’s attempt to heal itself after an injury; defend itself against foreign invaders, such as viruses and bacteria; and repair damaged tissue. Did you know just by taking a few different herbs that you could potentially cure inflammation? It’s sounds bizzar but its true! Check out how to do so below!
Turmeric- 1/2 tsp of turmeric in warm milk is an effective remedy for pain caused by inflammation.
Ginger- Inhibits the production of toxic free radicals and pro-inflammatory compounds.
Cayenne Pepper- Contains a compound called Capsaicin which is effective in treating inflammation induced pain.
Cinnamon- The active component of cinnamon inhibits the NF-kappa B protein, which is related to inflammation-induced damage.
Clove- Clove contains erugenol, which works in part by blocking the COX-2 enzyme that causes inflammation.
Garlic- Soothes inflammation and pain caused by arthritis by suppressing formation of nitric oxide and prostaglandins.
