Sweet potatoes or yams contain three key compounds with anti-inflammatory effects: beta-carotene, magnesium, and vitamin C. These tasty tubers also have B-complex vitamins, zinc, and other antioxidants.
Try savory sweet potato patties or bake sweet potatoes. Drizzle them with maple syrup for an anti-inflammatory treat.
Turmeric is a potent anti-inflammatory thanks to curcumin. Research suggests that curcumin is as effective as ibuprofen at relieving pain! Less than a teaspoon can be helpful.
Recipes: Turmeric is common in recipes for curries and other savory cuisines. It can also be baked into fruit pies and other desserts, or stirred into foods and drinks.
