The Beet & Cherry Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie

Any sort or form of inflammation canโ€™t be good for your body. It has been linked to weight gain, joint pain, heart disease, acne, bloating and fatigue. If you arenโ€™t quite sure what is causing it, try cutting down things like sugar, alcohol, saturated fats, refined carbs and gluten might be a good start.

This kick-ass anti-inflammatory beet and cheery smoothie packs a healthy dose of fruits ready to fight inflammation but if you are feeling extra cheeky and want to kick things up a notch, add in a handful of dark leafy greens. Spinach canโ€™t hurt.
