Psoriasis-fighting turmeric blueberry smoothie

This psoriasis-fighting turmeric blueberry smoothie contains potent immune system boosting and anti-inflammatory foods.

Psoriasis is a chronic skin disorder that forces skin cells to grow too rapidly. Up to 7.5 million Americans suffer from the disease, according to the National Institutes of Health. It is actually an autoimmune disease and occurs when a type of white blood cell called a T cell mistakenly attacks healthy skin cells.

Usually, skin cells grow slowly and shed about every 4 weeks. This allows fresh new skin cells to replace the old ones that have flaked off. However, with psoriasis, skin cells are formed within a matter of days rather than weeks. This creates thick patches or plaques.

Let’s take a closer look at the ingredients in this psoriasis-fighting turmeric blueberry smoothie.

Blueberries:

Blueberries contain powerful antioxidants and vitamins that can help boost the immune system and fight inflammation.

Turmeric:

Turmeric is one of the most potent healing spices in the world. It is the subject of many clinical studies. It contains incredibly potent anti-inflammatory properties, and is believed to help with skin conditions like psoriasis. A study published in the European Journal of Dermatology showed that light therapy combined with turmeric helped treat psoriasis.

Directions:

1/2 cup of blueberries
1/2 tsp of turmeric
1/2 avocado
1 cup of kale
