Inflammation, as you might already know, is at the center of many diseases and conditions. With each passing year, doctors find inflammation responsible for a number of health problems, including heart disease and even cancer. It’s clear that it’s definitely harming our health, yet it’s a normal body process that indicates an activated immune system. It’s a pretty complex biological process which occurs when the body reacts to harmful stimuli. It’s actually a protective process that’s not harmful until it’s let to run amok. The bad thing about inflammation is that it’s pretty hard to control. However, there are many natural ways that can put the inflammation in your body under control and resolve numerous health problems.
In fact, it might be as simple as drinking a cup of tea. Not every tea, of course – it’s a combination of green tea, turmeric, and cinnamon that works. If you haven’t tried it already, you’re missing out on a great and healthy cup of tea. Unlike some natural remedies, this one tastes great as well and offers a multitude of health benefits.
Health Benefits of Green Tea
Green tea is one of the most powerful natural remedies of all time. It’s full of antioxidants which can neutralize free radicals in our body and in that way prevent a variety of diseases including several types of cancer. And that’s not where it stops. Green tea can reduce the risk of inflammation, regulate your blood sugar levels, reduce the risk of heart disease, improve your mental health, improve the health of your liver, and lower the inflammation in the gut, reducing the risk of Crohn’s disease and IBS.
Even science has proven that green tea can do all this and more, which means more than enough reason in our book to drink it.

Cinnamon is more than just a simple sweet spice. In fact, it’s one of the most powerful herbs in the world and exhibits a variety of medicinal benefits. Besides being a great source of antioxidants, it can reduce inflammation, protect your brain, lower the risk of brain cancer, and fight allergies.
Additionally, it has antibacterial and antifungal properties and can easily boost your immune system.
Health Benefits of Turmeric
Also known as one of the most potent and healthy spices in the world, turmeric has been part of natural medicine for centuries. Like cinnamon and green tea, it can reduce the risk of cancer and lower inflammation, while promoting your brain and heart health. As if this isn’t enough, it can also relieve the symptoms of arthritis and other inflammatory conditions.
The combination of these ingredients plus a bit of honey will create an incredibly powerful remedy against inflammation.
Here’s how to prepare the tea:
