FEEL BETTER, NATURALLY
Golfers’ culinary exploits often extend only as far as a pie at the turn and a beer, or three, at the 19th hole, despite regularly being reminded that their body is a temple.
Naturopath and Holistic Nutritionist, Erika Morvay, encourages the use of natural anti-inflammatory ingredients for detoxification to get your liver, which is often overworked from processing the alcohol and foods synonymous with golf, to love you once again.
Versatile and full of anti-inflammatory properties, ginger is one such natural ingredient shown to reduce inflammation, having been used for medicinal purposes for centuries.
Broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts and bok choy are all part of the cruciferous vegetables family, and are a second type of greens that golfers should strive for. Rich in antioxidants, these greens are amongst the most nutrient-dense foods on earth.
In addition to being delicious, cinnamon has been used for thousands of years as an anti-inflammatory, can lower blood glucose levels and cholesterol, reduce pain and inflammation and even assist in weight loss. And while perhaps not as universally loved as cinnamon, liquorice also contains liver protecting qualities and is known to soothe inflammation, while turmeric also assists with inflammation and has the added benefit of flushing out toxins from your body.
