Inflammation is frequently discussed, but often is not considered a key health concern unless you have joint pain or irritable bowels. Inflammation does impact your joints - if you have pain, stiffness, or creakiness, reducing inflammation will make you feel smoother, more fluid. For your digestion, reducing inflammation will decrease allergies, autoimmune disease, and gastric upset.
But inflammation matters even more than that. So much more!
What’s the number one cause of mortality that begins to develop in your 30s (actually, based on military autopsies it can begin even earlier)? Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease aka heart disease, high blood pressure, and stroke.
The causative agent in heart disease is inflammation. Inflammation plays a key role in both the initiation and progression of atherosclerosis which eventually leads to heart attack and stroke. Causative agents are not only the intiatiants of disease, but they are also the areas you can correct now that will make the biggest impact.
What can you do?
By eliminating the causative agent, inflammation, you reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease in addition to other diseases linked to inflammation such as - colitis, pancreatitis, arthritis, and colon, pancreatic, and liver cancers.
