Inflammation (a localized physical condition in which part of the body becomes reddened, swollen, hot, and often painful) is a normal part of the body’s immune response to infection or injury. It is a necessary and useful part of life and is a powerful part of keeping us healthy.
Despite it’s critical role in maintaining homeostasis and health inflammation can become chronic, misplaced and out of control . When this happens inflammation can be closely associated with the development of numbers of chronic , non-infectious diseases. Some of these are:
Natural anti-inflammatory agents can be very helpful without dangerous side effects for many of these chronic inflammatory states. I recommend the following natural anti-inflammatory herbal products:
Anti-inflammatory Support - an excellent combination of anti-inflammatory herbs with often excellent results in reducing symptoms of inflammation.
OPC-3 - pretty much the strongest anti-oxidant formula out there OPC-3 is anti-inflammatory, helps to maintain cardiovascular health, reduces cholesterol, promotes healthy blood function and is great for increased energy. It contains oligomeric proanthocyanidins, grape seed extract, red wine extract, citrus extract, bioflavonoids, bilberry extract and pine bark extract (pycnogenol).
Immune One Arabinogalactin/Larch - Larch is an amazing anti-inflammatory herb . This product is made into a dissolvable powder that is easy to take in any liquid and fairly bland in taste.
Immune One Joint Mobility - this product contains Larch as well as glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, MSM, manganese, vitamin C, Grape Seed Extract, Boswellin, Calcium, magnesium and horsetail/silica.
