Inflammation is a naturally occurring process that in general takes place in the vascular tissues. Inflammation is the body’s second line of defense; it inhibits the spread of injury, destroys pathogens such as bacteria, fungus and viruses and helps the body to heal when injured. It is typically characterized by swelling – build-up of fluids; redness and heat – due to increased blood flow; pain – due to release of chemicals that stimulate nerve endings and loss of function - has a number of causes.+ Read more >
Acute inflammation is a short-lived process and generally happens within a few minutes or hours. On average the healing should take place after a maximum of 8-10 days and the body will be able to function normally again. Almost everyone has experienced some type of acute inflammation such as muscle injury or sprained/strained foot or wrist. However, sometimes the stimulus persists and the healing process is postponed and chronic inflammation sets in which can last weeks, months or even years and it is characterized by the presence of inflammatory markers and tissue destruction when attempted to heal. Chronic inflammation can result in an impaired immune system which may trigger allergies, repeated infections and other health conditions. An anti-inflammatory diet and inflammation supplements can aid to prevent or reduce inflammation and regain your health. Flax seed oil or fish are rich in Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids which are known to have anti-inflammatory and immune building properties. Bromelain taken on an empty stomach has an anti-inflammatory effect it also encourages the breakdown of fibrin - a soluble protein found in blood plasma, which blocks lymphatic and blood vessels resulting in swelling of the inflamed area. Silica is especially beneficial for inflammatory conditions in connective tissue such as tendonitis because it helps to repair and rebuild connective tissue. Serrapeptase also known as the “Miracle Enzyme” has successfully been used by a German MD to treat a number of health conditions; including inflammation; it works by breaking down inflamed and dead tissues to promote healing. Turmeric is recommended for all inflammatory health conditions. Look for whole turmeric inflammation supplements it is more effective than the isolated version curcumin (main constituent of turmeric). Healthy dietary and lifestyle habits are equally important as inflammation supplements. Eating less meat helps to reduce inflammation, meat is high in arachadonic acid which promotes inflammation and suppresses the immune system as well. Stick mainly to a alkalizing plant based diet which includes lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, cold water fish, whole grains, nuts, seeds, legumes and fermented soy (tempeh). No need to worry about your protein intake, nuts, seeds and legumes combined with whole grains make a complete protein and tempeh alone is an excellent source of a complete protein as well. Those who suffer from arthritic conditions should avoid the night shade vegetables (tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant and tobacco) because they contain ‘Solanine’ a chemical substance which can trigger pain in some people. Also avoid smoking and alcohol because they promote inflammation by creating acidity in the body.

Resveratrol is a polyphenolic compound found in various berries (cranberry, blueberry, grapes) and herbs. Studies with trans-resveratrol have reported a diverse range of benefits in the areas of heart health, immunity and inflammation. Research has also revealed that trans-resveratrol mimics the biological longevity effects of a calorie-restricted diet. There is no doubt that many among us, in the context of dinner-party banter or some other setting conducive to the transfer of anecdotal wisdom, have heard that a glass of wine a day is good for your health. ‘A healthy heart and a long life' is usually the jist of this particular nugget of scientifically secular populist enlightenment. The long life that is inferred is attributable to a substance that the scientifically observant elite have identified as resveratrol, a phytonutrient originating -in this case - in the vinyards. Resveratrol, in turn, elicits this wondrous effect largely by mimicking many of the biological chain of events seen in the practice of Calorie Restriction Optimum Nutrition (CRON), or simply Caloric Restriction (CR).$33.88

GLA-240 is gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an "activated" fatty acid found in evening primrose oil and in more concentrated form in borage oil. Extensive scientific research shows that GLA supplementation favorably modulates the body's balance of eicosanoids, local cellular "hormones" which regulate inflammation, thrombosis (abnormal blood clotting), and immune function. Eicosanoid imbalances are involved in many of the symptoms of menopause and premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
