Five Fabulous Drinks for an Anti Inflammatory Diet


Anti Inflammatory Diet PolyphenolsThere are many fun and popular events that take place outdoors this summer: parades, art fairs, kids’ sporting events, and relaxing Sundays at the pool. While summer provides us with the perfect opportunity to step outside and enjoy the fresh air, it’s important to stay hydrated so that we can enjoy the season to its fullest without wearing ourselves out with dehydrating, which can lead to lack of concentration, decreased energy, and headaches. Beat the heat, improve your health, and support your anti inflammatory diet with these five fabulous drinks.

Water – As you increase your fiber on the Gene Smart Anti Inflammatory Diet Program, it’s important to increase your water intake as well. For a refreshing twist, slice cucumbers and add them to a picture of ice cold water. Keep the pitcher in the fridge for a cold drink throughout the day. Water is also delicious with sliced oranges, cantaloupe, limes, or berries.

Orange-Mango Juice – Fresh squeezed orange-mango juice is a delicious polyphenol-filled drink that supports an anti inflammatory diet. Be sure it is 100% fruit juice – additives are often loaded with sugar and do not contain the polyphenols necessary for an anti inflammatory diet. Tip: Keep the pulp in your orange juice for maximum polyphenol benefits.

Green Tea – Green tea is one of the best things you can add to your anti inflammatory diet. It’s one of the highest sources of polyphenols available. In fact, we use it in our polyphenol supplement – Pomegranate & Green Tea Extract to help individuals make sure they’re getting enough polyphenols every day.

Anti Inflammatory Diet PolyphenolsGrape Juice – Grape juice is a classic, family friendly drink. Choose 100% red grape juice for a refreshing and polyphenol filled summer drink. Try it mixed with club soda for a tasty bubbly drink. (Bonus – you’ll save on calories!)

Red Wine – Go ahead, live a little! Enjoy a glass of red wine with tonight’s dinner. It’s filled with polyphenols.
