If you are afraid of getting arthritis, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases, Alzheimer’s irritable bowel, colitis, chronic pain, cancer, metabolic syndrome, stroke and mental problems, then pay attention!
All of these stem from an increase in inflammation in the body which can be caused by overdosing of antibiotics, poor diet, lack of exercise, smoking, too much alcohol, certain medications, poor dental hygiene and stress. Your body basically misreads information and after the inflammation is through fixing the immediate problem it somehow thinks it can cure everything so never shuts off. This becomes chronic inflammation and is the root cause of many of our illnesses.
In addition to changing your lifestyle and trying to reduce stress, you can curb this inflammation response with some supplements. Our favorite is curcumin and for short periods of time, holy basil (long-term use has some warnings with it). Curcumin in addition to being an anti-inflammatory also exhibits antibacterial and hypoallergenic properties. But you have to get the right kind of curcumin as many forms are not easily absorbed into the bloodstream. We like brands with the Curcumin c-3 complex which has clinical trials to support its efficacy. You can also investigate using tocotrienols (like a super vitamin E) which has shown to regulate inflammation markers and inhibited pro-inflammatory cytokines, and has been used in cases of inflammatory bowel disease.
Also good are any anti-oxidants that fight free radicals. We take a chewable wafer that contains NT factor which acts on the cellular level to fight free radical damage and get the cells healthy again so they don’t reproduce deformed offspring (a common process that accelerates aging).
