  • The tomatoes can reduce inflammation in your body and protect your heart in the meantime.
  • Avocados are a healthy source of fats that are great for your digestion, heart, brain and inflammation-related pain.
  • Onions can help boost the detoxification process in your body, kill bad bugs and fight inflammation.
  • Parsley is wonderful for your digestion, immune system and for beating inflammation.
  • Cilantro is particularly amazing for heavy metal detoxification, but also great for your digestion, healthy sleep and combating inflammation.
  • Olives can protect you against infections and inflammation and are great for healthy cholesterol levels, your heart, blood pressure and skin.
  • Lemons bring in alkalizing, cleansing and anti-inflammatory properties with a boost of vitamin C.
  • Turmeric is one of the most powerful spices out there with anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties.
