There are very specific genes that encode your inflammation response. It's important to determine what your genotype is for these genes as this will provide you with insight into whether you have a "slow to turn off" inflammatory pathway. In Functional Medicine, inflammation is viewed as the precursor to many lifestyle-related, chronic diseases. Prolonged, low-grade inflammation causes conditions like allergies, rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune disease, asthma, heart disease, obesity, diabetes type 2, dementia, depression and certain cancers. The reason is that inflammation leads to premature ageing from the inside out. This is called 'inflammaging'!
The good news is that inflammation can be managed and prevented way before it contributes towards a lifestyle-related, chronic disease. Shop here for products that we have selected to help you achieve the optimal inflammation biomarkers.
