Inflammation plays a critical role in our body’s defense as it helps in wound healing and fighting off invading pathogens and microbes in the body. However, when the inflammatory response is turned on all the time, it becomes chronic inflammation. This has been linked to a huge range of conditions and diseases including, but certainly not limited to, diabetes, stroke, IBD, allergies, arthritis, asthma, and even cancer.
Stress and body weight are not the only contributing factors behind chronic inflammation. What we eat and drink also plays a great deal into our normal bodily functions. In fact, there are a number of everyday drinks that help mitigate the harmful effects of too much inflammation in the body.
However, even some of these healthy drinks contain sugar. In fact, sugar has been shown to be the culprit of many health issues. But sugar can only be harmful in excessive amounts (greater than 100-150 calories of added sugar per day), although chronic inflammation can still sneak up on anyone through seemingly innocent foods.
