Drinking a cup of anti-inflammatory tea is an excellent way to prevent chronic disease and improve your overall health, and there are many different teas to choose from!

What is Anti-Inflammatory Tea?

Any type of tea that is able to reduce inflammation – the body’s immune system response to a perceived injury or threat – can be considered an anti-inflammatory tea. Now, while some inflammation is good, such as a bruise on your elbow, which signals that the healing process is taking place, constant inflammation or low-grade inflammation is very dangerous. This is the type of inflammation that can lead to oxidative stress and more serious diseases, including heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, and asthma, among others. Some teas are able to regulate the immune system’s response and improve overall health by cutting down on this chronic danger to your body.

Teas that Fight Inflammation

The best anti-inflammatory teas that help improve immunity and reduce body toxicity include turmeric tea, green tea, peppermint tea, dandelion tea, fennel tea, cinnamon tea, and ginger tea, among others.

Ginger Tea

This tea has long been used by people who need some relief for their gastrointestinal distress. Ginger has anti-inflammatory compounds, and gingerol, the active ingredient, is known to improve the accuracy of the immune system and eliminate free radicals before they can cause oxidative stress.

Turmeric Tea

One of the most powerful antioxidant substances we have yet discovered, turmeric has an active ingredient named curcumin that can soothe the upset stomach and improve the bacterial balance in the gut, which can help the entire immune system of the body.

Dandelion Tea

Although some people think of dandelions as weeds, these leaves can be brewed into a powerful anti-inflammatory tea that can also reduce water retention and improve immune system function.

Fennel Tea

Fennel is known to be an anti-spasmodic and anti-inflammatory herb and is often used to relieve stress in the nervous system. This can also reduce oxidative stress throughout the body.

Peppermint Tea

Famed for settling the stomach, this tea is able to reduce inflammation in the intestinal tract, as well as similar effects on joints and muscles.

Green Tea

Green tea has a healthy supply of polyphenolic compounds, which are anti-inflammatory and antioxidant in nature, meaning that they can quickly help to regulate the behavior of the immune system.

Cinnamon Tea

Cinnamaldehyde is the powerful active ingredient of cinnamon tea, which has proven abilities to reduce chronic inflammation and lower your risk of chronic disease.
