One of the most common causes of pain and poor health is chronic inflammation.

By keeping inflammation in check you’ll boost your liver and heart health, lower your risk for Alzheimer’s disease and certain types of cancer, and restore lost mobility to stiff, sore joints.

Because chronic inflammation is such a widespread problem today, you’ll find dozens of drugs available to manage this condition. But for many people drugs aren’t answer. They prefer natural remedies instead.

This sweet potato smoothie is a delicious way to keep chronic inflammation at bay.

The sweet potatoes in this recipe are rich in beta-carotene, manganese and fiber which help reduce inflammation.

Turmeric is one of the most powerful all-natural anti-inflammatories around.

And cinnamon can help curb tissue-damaging post-meal blood-sugar surges.
