Inflammation. It’s become a buzzword these days, and has become a household name. But do you actually know what it means?

When your immune system reacts to an injury or an infection, we want our body to promote inflammation–that swelling and redness means your blood cells are flowing to the area to help your body heal. And occasional inflammation is the body’s natural response to trauma. The trauma could be physical, dietary, or environmental, such as a broken bone, exercise-induced muscle strain, consumption of allergenic foods, and exposure to pollutants, heavy metals, or other chemical compounds such as pesticides that are foreign to the human body.

But, inflammation becomes problematic when an immune response occurs over and over, chronically, due to things like a buildup of exposures to toxins, stress, obesity, an unhealthy diet or lifestyle, and autoimmune conditions. When the inflammatory process doesn’t subside but persists, it creates a chronic state of inflammation. It has been shown that over time, inflammation can cause DNA damage and oxidative stress, which can lead to serious illnesses like inflammatory bowel disease, heart disease, digestive disorders, depression, arthritis, dementia, and cancer.

Enter Inflammatone. This comprehensive blend of specialized protein-degrading or proteolytic enzymes, polyphenols (plant chemicals), and botanical extracts formulated to promote a healthy inflammatory response and support the body’s ability to break down protein structures that are produced during the natural inflammatory process.

When taken on an empty stomach, Inflammatone shines even further. That’s because it contains proteolytic enzymes, which help break down damaged tissue. Curcumin, ginger, and Boswellia have been used for centuries in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine to help modulate the production of inflammatory compounds in the body. Quercetin, rutin, resveratrol, and rosemary contain phytonutrients that may help protect cells from excess oxidative stress. By supporting a healthy inflammatory response and antioxidant status in the body, the ingredients in Inflammatone may be helpful for supporting the treatment of inflammatory conditions, injuries, and postoperative tissue repair.

Of course, we always recommend pairing supplements with a foundation of an anti-inflammatory diet and a health-promoting lifestyle. We have lots of info and things to say about that, so let us know if we can help you with an inflammatory condition!
