Did you know that Inflammation is Linked to:
- Heart Disease
- Macular Degeneration
So what is inflammation?
It’s the response of body tissues to injury or irritation characterized by swelling. When the vessels and fine capillaries are inflamed, insulin cannot effectively deliver sugar to the muscles cells for energy. Instead, insulin stores the sugar as fat. That is why people feel so tired even though they are eating carbohydrates.
Did you know that the underlying or root cause of over 70 chronic degenerative diseases is oxidative stress
This is the dark side of oxygen. We are actually rusting inside. Oxidative stress is actually the cause of this inflammatory response and the media and medical community are not relating these two phenomenon’s within the body. Free radicals must be immediately rendered harmless via antioxidants or they can go on to damage the vessel wall, cell wall, proteins, fats, and even the DNA nucleus of the cell. When the vessel wall, cell wall, or DNA is damaged the immune system is activated in an attempt to repair this damage.
However, since the causes of oxidative stress are usually chronic, the immune system has difficulty shutting down and a low grade, chronic inflammatory response usually develops. Medicine and medical research is going to focus on trying to reverse this inflammation once it has already done some significant damage. However, nutritional medicine aims at eliminating or preventing the oxidative stress that is causing the damage in the beginning. Not only is your body protected from this damage but it also prevents the inflammation from occurring in the first place.
