Inflammation Management Information & Research

1.
What helps with inflammation?

A healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables and healthy fats promotes a healthy inflammatory response. You should also avoid certain foods, such as fried or processed foods, and too much sugar. Nutrients such as Omega 3 fatty acids and curcumin can help. Omega 3s help inhibit inflammatory factors to promote heart and whole-body health, while curcumin helps inhibit inflammation to support joint and organ health.

2.
What is curcumin?

Curcumin is an extract of the spice turmeric. It is rich in bioactive compounds called curcuminoids. These chemicals support heart health, immune function and more. Curcuminoids also help inhibit inflammatory factors to support joint health and can inhibit system-wide inflammation to help promote healthy organ function and whole-body health. These curcuminoid compounds exist in turmeric-rich foods, but will be much more concentrated in a high-quality curcumin supplement.

3.
What are Omega-6 fatty acids?

There are two common omega fatty acids in our diets: omega-3s and omega-6s. They’re both essential to health, but balancing the two is even more important. Westerners generally eat too many foods high in omega-6s and not enough omega-3s. Maintaining a healthy balance of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids can help promote a healthy inflammatory response. For optimum health, the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids should be between 1:1 and 4:1.
