Turmeric Smoothie Benefits

Ginger has amazing anti-inflammatory properties and similar to turmeric, it’s also a natural blood thinner. Turmeric not only reduces inflammation due to curcumin, but it also reduces pain associated with inflammation. 

Banana contain vitamins B6 & C. They are also high in potassium, magnesium, manganese, and fiber. Adding bananas to your smoothies helps increase energy levels and improve muscle function.

Bananas also contain some prebiotics making them excellent for gut health. When making smoothies for inflammation, I highly recommend choosing almond or coconut milk. 

That’s because almond and coconut milk both contain high amounts of vitamin E, D, and omega-3 fatty acids and are great for clearing up arteries and reducing inflammation and pain.

Is Turmeric Safe In Smoothies?
