If you or someone you love suffers from joint pain such as arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, or osteoarthritis, then you know the intense pain that these inflammatory diseases can cause.

Inflammation is linked to numerous health problems in the body such as Alzheimer’s, arthritis, migraines, abdominal and menstrual cramps, and even cancer.

Foods rich in carotenoids have been shown in numerous studies to reduce inflammation. Carotenoids, such as beta-cryptoxanthin and beta-carotene are found in many orange colored foods such as tangerines, mangoes, and pumpkins.

There are also spices, including ginger and turmeric, which have powerful anti-inflammatory compounds. Vitamin C has been linked to a lower risk of developing gout.

If you suffer from arthritis or if you want to lower your risk of developing any type of inflammatory disease, then you will want to incorporate anti-inflammatory foods into your daily smoothies and juices.

We have put together eight of the best tasting, yet highly anti-inflammatory, juice and smoothie recipes on the planet. Enjoying one of these smoothies each day, or at least every other day, will reduce arthritis pain and stop chronic inflammation in its tracks!
