How Does This Soup Help With Inflammation?

Although inflammation has a ton of causes, studies show that free radicals are one of them. When you eat foods that are toxic or live an unhealthy lifestyle, your body gets overloaded with these toxins which causes cellular damage.

This leads to inflammation and fortunately, by eating the right foods, you can reduce your symptoms naturally. With that being said, always seek professional help with any health condition.

Inflammation can have other serious causes which can be diagnosed and treated by a doctor. With that being said, here is how the ingredients in this soup help reduce free radicals and lower inflammation.

Kale is an alkaline vegetable which means it helps cleanse your blood of harmful toxins. It also contains fiber which helps cleanse your colon and improve digestive health.

Cauliflower and broccoli both contain a chemical called sulforaphane which helps the liver produce detoxifying enzymes that block free radicals. 

Celery is packed with phytonutrients which are antioxidants that help reduce oxidative stress, (another cause of inflammation). 

Ginger helps cleanse the body of toxins by stimulating digestion, and circulation and increasing sweat output. It also helps the body excrete buildup waste products.
