You know what inflammation feels like. Maybe you’ve cut your finger on a knife in the kitchen and it turns red and swells. Perhaps you’ve played a game of tennis on a knee that has been giving you trouble. Now it’s the size of a softball and you’re having difficulty standing, let alone walking.
Inflammation: Public Enemy #1
Most of the time inflammation acts as a lifesaver that enables our bodies to guard against infection, or fend off dangerous invaders like bacteria, viruses, and parasites. The instant any of these microbes enter the body, inflammation launches a defensive attack that annihilates both the invader and the tissue it may have infected.
When healing is complete, the inflammatory process is meant to shut off automatically—except sometimes it doesn’t. When your immunity is low, or when the body is stressed, inflammatory flare-ups begin to burn out of control which can take a huge toll on the rest of your body.
Inflammation is responsible for numerous health ailments from swollen, achy joints to irritable bowel syndrome. Within the brain it can cause memory loss or other cognitive issues; and can damage artery walls, block blood flow, and affect your heart function. And it can also cause your cholesterol and blood pressure to skyrocket.
You may even suffer from inflammation without realizing it
What’s more, chronic inflammation – the kind that’s been around for years [even without you knowing it] – can lead to auto-immune diseases like celiac disease [an allergy to wheat] and psoriasis. And if inflammation has taken over your body, your immune system beings to break down allowing legions of abnormal cells to take hold.
Inflammation literally means “heat”, so it’s critical to cool it down – fast. And yes, you may reach for the bottle of ibuprofen or acetaminophen, but there are two nutrients that research says can provide powerful protection against inflammatory fires: curcumin and boswellia.
You may have heard of turmeric as a culinary spice – it’s golden color gives curries their rich hue. However, Ayurvedic practitioners have used this spice for inflammation-related illnesses like …
But what is curcumin? Curcumin is a compound of turmeric, and studies show it can relieve inflammation. Curcumin attacks and destroys not only the sources of inflammation but is also an amazing free radical fighter and antioxidant.
The oxidation that occurs in your body is very similar to what happens when cars are left outside in the winter at the beach - they rust. While your body isn’t literally rusting from the inside out, it is still deteriorating in ways you can’t see, which makes it harder for you to fight back.
Boswellia is part of the Burseraceae plant family, a flowering tree found in India and Southern Asia. Boswellia operates side by side with your immune system, inhibiting the cytokines that can cause inflammation to run wild. Research shows that boswellia can help to:
- Reduce inflammation
- Relieve joint swelling and tenderness
- Promote faster healing when you have an infection
- Protect against autoimmune diseases
Inflammation and Your Endocannabinoid System
Your endocannabinoid system [or ECS] plays a vital role in your overall health balance and, most particularly, in your immune system which is part of your peripheral nervous system. Your ECS sends messages to the cannabinoids receptors found in your immune system to better support your body when under attack.
If your endocannabinoid system isn’t working properly, this inflammation can overrun your body and cause disease where you least expect it.
