Chronic illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes have one unifying, underlying cause: inflammation. While some level of inflammation is necessary for a strong immune system, uncontrolled inflammation leads to disease. Luckily, an anti-inflammatory diet loaded with plant-based soups can help control the inflammatory response.
While most plants have some anti-inflammatory benefits, there are three specific ingredients found in 18 Chestnut soups that stand out.
Anti-Inflammatory Ingredients in 18 Chestnuts Soup
Ginger is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties due to multiple healthy plant compounds called polyphenols found in the root. Ginger is particularly beneficial for helping tame inflammation of the digestive system, which is why it is frequently used as a natural remedy for nausea or upset stomach. Find ginger in our delicious Carrot Ginger Dill soup.
Beets, and all purple fruits and veggies, are a rich source of anti-inflammatory antioxidants called anthocyanins. These antioxidants are the reason for the deep purple color of beets and may also reduce inflammation and support healthy insulin levels. Easily incorporate beets into your diet with our deep-purple Beetroot Apple soup.
Green vegetables like asparagus, kale, or spinach are not only a great source of vitamins and minerals. They are also loaded with phytonutrients that stop inflammation in its tracks. Research has found that those with a diet rich in green veggies have lower levels of inflammatory markers. Our Asparagus Shiitake soup is a delicious way to infuse more greens into your diet.
