I highly advise you to keep off from these inflammation-causing drinks you might not be aware of;

Energy Drinks

Sport and energy drinks are high in added sugars, chemicals, and colors. Regular intake of these refined sugars is harmful to your health. The added chemicals and sweeteners contain anti-inflammatory triggering agents such as sucralose and aspartame, causing chronic inflammation. I recommend that you swipe energy drinks with coconut water for healthier benefits.


Soda is common to drink in most homes. However, they are high in fructose corn syrup, sweeteners, and refined sugars that cause inflammation. Substituting your favorite soda with homemade fruit juice lowers inflammation risks.

Oat Milk

it’s considered one of the healthiest dairy-free milk. However, it contains natural sugar that adds up to 7 grams per serving. Regular intake of oat milk is likely to spike inflammation due to starch digestion. I recommend swiping your oat milk with healthy alternatives such as cashew or pea milk.
