Juice Recipes To Increase Endurance And Reduce Post-Workout Inflammation

Inflammation is often mistaken for tiredness and anemia. When doctors treat inflammation, the first thing they do is look into the diet and nutrition of the person.

Some of the inflammation symptoms are feeling fatigue or taking longer for injuries to heal. Diet is very important, and if you take the wrong carbohydrates or not being hydrated enough, it can provoke inflammation.

The best way to fight inflammation is with the right combination of proteins, carbs and fat from the appropriate sources. So, your diet should contain all the right nutrients. Increase the intake of whole grains and beans, and lower the intake of processed food and refined sugar.

You don’t have to make major changes all at once; you can start off by adding some fruit to your breakfast. Make your own healthy drinks using a slow juicer. That way, you can easily make a healthy and tasty meal.
