Anti-inflammatory Beetroot-Oatmeal Pancake

Oatmeal, like brown rice, is high in fibre, and fibre helps with inflammation. Studies have shown that colloidal oatmeal’s unique chemical profile diminishes cytokines, a group of proteins that cause inflammation in your body. Beetroot juice contains anti-inflammatory compounds called betalains that inhibit specific signaling pathways, which play a role in inflammatory diseases. Research shows that a betalain called phenethylamine-betaxanthin reduces the activity of an inflammatory enzyme by 32%.
