All About Inflammation (& My Favorite Supplement to Reduce It)

If I were to ask you, “What is at the root of almost all diseases?” would you answer: a) lack of nutrition, b) imbalanced gut health, or c) inflammation? If you responded with inflammation, you are correct! Believe it or not, inflammation is now being linked to almost every health issue. Harvard Medical School states that inflammation plays a significant role in some of the most damaging diseases that we face including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, asthma, Alzheimer’s, and more.

So, what is inflammation? Contrary to what it might sound like, inflammation is not always a bad thing. In fact, it is an integral part of the body’s immune response against pathogens (disease-causing agents) like bacteria, parasites, and viruses. Inflammation works to remove these harmful foreign invaders and help to heal the body from their presence. It also functions to heal tissue that has been damaged after an injury.

Acute inflammation is a beneficial kind that quickly jumps into action to rebalance the body from toxins and injury. But chronic inflammation is different. While acute inflammation can last from a few hours to a few days, chronic inflammation can hang around for months or even years if the cause of it has not been addressed. This is the type of inflammation that can result in more damage than benefit. There are several causes of chronic inflammation such as a poor diet, excessive stress, food allergies and more.

Luckily, there are ways to reduce inflammation. Making sure your diet consists of nutrient-dense foods, practicing methods to limit stress such as yoga and meditation, and being cognizant of any food allergies are all important for lessening inflammation. I also strongly recommend taking a curcumin supplement to most of my clients since so many of them face issues involving inflammation. My number one curcumin Supplement is Further Food’s Premium Curcumin Turmeric.

Further Food’s Premium Curcumin Turmeric Supplement is ideal for anyone who is experiencing any joint pain, aches, muscle soreness, or who may be struggling with inflammation in any other way. I love it because it combines 500mg of 95% standardized curcumin extract plus organic turmeric root to provide 30x the potencyas ordinary turmeric powder. It also includes both black pepper & avocado oil for superior absorption plus ginger and boswellia for additional anti-inflammatory benefits.

If you have been following me for a while, you know that I love Further Food because their products are verified by an independent lab so I know that they are always the highest quality. The Premium Curcumin Turmeric Supplement is also doctor and herbalist-formulated, non-GMO, gluten-free, and soy-free. One bottle comes with a two-month supply and I know I felt results within the first couple of months of taking it.
