Systemic or chronic inflammation can seriously affect your health and
contributes to a number of diseases and chronic health conditions. What is
inflammation? Inflammation is an integral part of the immune system and is
simply the body’s response to an injury or infection. Infection or injury
triggers a biological process known as the “inflammatory cascade”. Inflammation
begins when pro-inflammatory hormones (prostaglandins, histamines and
cytokines**) in your body signal white blood cells to remove the infection
and/or damaged tissue. At the same time, anti-inflammatory compounds are
released to begin the healing process. These compounds limit, control or modify
the inflammatory response as necessary. This response to infection or injury is
a normal, appropriate reaction. Inflammation is a good thing. Without it,
infection would go unchecked and injuries would never heal. However,
inflammation can also be potentially harmful. When the symptoms of inflammation
continue, what started as a healthy immune response may become excessive or
simply fail to shut off. It’s this chronic inflammation that slowly destroys our
organs, our ability for optimal functioning and leads to rapid aging.
Many health experts now see inflammation as an immune system that’s out of
control. Most will also agree that the key to a strong immune system lies in the
gut. Why? Because most of the body’s defenses can be found in the
gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Your GI tract has a huge responsibility. It takes
the foods you eat, neutralizes any bacteria or viruses before they can infect
your body and then gets rid of the waste. A poor diet is synonymous with poor
gut health. Poor gut health can lead to bloating, constipation, reflux, excess
gas, abdominal pain and heartburn. These symptoms are some classic, early signs
of an inflamed GI tract. When left unchecked, inflammatory symptoms worsen and
over time, your body becomes overwhelmed and less able to effectively do its
job. The may result in the development of a number of chronic illnesses.
Preventing and/or reducing inflammation begins with listening to your body,
finding the cause, or causes, and developing a comprehensive approach to restore
the balance between the immune response and inflammation. Make healthy
lifestyles choices, pay attention to your diet, control your weight, exercise
and manage your stress. Dietary supplements, like Inflamericzyme, containing key
inflammation fighting nutrients may also be beneficial.
Inflamericzyme contains a combination of clinically researched ingredients well
known for their anti-inflammatory actions, including enzymes and herbals.
Enzymes are proteins that facilitate chemical reactions in living organisms and
are required for every single chemical action that takes place in your body.
They reduce inflammation by neutralizing the bio-chemicals of inflammation (bradykinins
and pro-inflammatory eicosanoids) to levels where synthesis, repair and
regeneration of injured tissues can take place. Enzymes "digest" organic debris
in the circulatory and lymph systems and the immune system uses them to destroy
invaders. Supplementing with enzymes may improve the effectiveness of the
natural process and may significantly improve the ability of your immune system
to do its job.
Other nutrients in the formulation are used for their synergistic effects and
anti-inflammatory actions. Some work by disrupting the signaling process that
activates the Cox-2 gene expression. Cox-2 is short for cyclooxygenase-2, an
enzyme that helps the body produce inflammatory hormone-like compounds called
prostaglandins and cytokines. Cox-2 is essential to fight infections or heal
injuries. Too much Cox-2 appears to result from imbalances and deficiencies of
certain nutrients. When the body overproduces Cox-2, the result is chronic
inflammation and pain.
Inflammation plays a role in many diseases, including arthritis, cancer, heart
disease, Alzheimer’s and a variety of autoimmune diseases. Common sense tells us
that controlling inflammation now will help us stay healthier later!
