Inflammation is a natural part of the body’s immune response, a cascade triggered to protect the body and maintain normal tissue repair. Acute inflammation is the body’s initial response to harmful stimuli in which plasma and immune cells are relocated from the blood into injured tissues. This movement is followed by a cascade of biochemical events which advance the normal inflammatory response. When inflammation is prolonged, it leads to a progressive shift in the type of cells present at the site of inflammation and is characterized by simultaneous destruction and healing of the tissue from the inflammatory process. Because inflammation plays a role in so many health challenges, it is essential to support and maintain a healthy cycle of inflammation to achieve optimal health.
Curcumin is the active compound in turmeric, an orangecolored spice used for thousands of years in cooking and medicine. Curcumin has been shown to have strong NFkBmodulating properties and plays a crucial role in maintaining proper inflammatory balance. Studies have shown that curcumin specifically supports proper inflammatory balance in the most significant GI challenges. Curcumin has been found to both promote GI mucosal health and help reduce stomach lining discomfort. It provides antioxidant protection in the cardiovascular system.4 Curcumin has also been shown to improve mood imbalances and adrenal fatigue by supporting a normal immune response, reducing oxidative stress and intestinal hyper-permeability.
Green Tea Extract (EGCg)
Green tea, used for centuries as a health tonic, is a potent antioxidant and is effective for maintaining healthy levels of inflammation. Its most researched active component, EGCg, has been repeatedly shown to protect against free radical damage and balance markers of inflammation. EGCg has been found to block NFkB activity and supports cardiovascular health by interfering with free radical generation in macrophages. In studies, green tea has been shown to reduce histamineproducing cells7 and support inflammatory balance. It has also been shown to inhibit key enzyme pathways involved in inflammation which play a key role in joint health.
This orange-colored spice, used for thousands of years in cooking and medicine, is rich in curcumin. In numerous studies, curcumin has been shown to have strong NFkB-modulating properties. NFkB plays a crucial role in inflammation. High activity levels of NFkB are associated with cell death and tissue damage. This broad-spectrum activity makes curcumin a great choice for supporting balanced inflammation in the body.
Skullcap Root Extract
This popular Chinese botanical has been shown to maintain markers of inflammation and support cardiovascular health. Skullcap possesses potent antioxidant properties. Research has shown it attenuates NFkB and inhibits COX-2 expression. It also supports healthy respiratory function by protecting airways and protecting mitochondrial function.
A flavonoid found in a variety of botanicals, vegetable and fruits, quercetin is a potent antioxidant that inhibits inducible ICAM-1 expression, an important pathway for maintaining healthy levels of inflammation. It has also been shown to enhance epithelial barrier function in the intestines by stabilizing mast cells through the release of cell protective factors. Quercetin has been shown to promote the balanced release of inflammatory mediators from mast cell.
Glutamine and Glycine
Amino acids L-glutamine and glycine are essential for healthy gut mucosa and normal tissue repair. Numerous studies have shown these amino acids to be soothing to the GI lining. The amino acid L-glutamine have been associated with better immune response, stronger intestinal wall lining and higher antioxidant capacity. Recent research also highlights the synergistic role between these amino acids and healthy balance of probiotic bacteria in the GI tract.
One of the key functions of vitamin D is its ability to tighten gap junctions in the intestinal lining creating a strong effective barrier that protects the body. Recent research suggests that improving vitamin D status significantly affects the expression of genetic pathways linked to immune activity. Vitamin D up-regulates specific genes that increase cellular production of natural compounds that protect us against pathogens. Higher blood levels of vitamin D have been shown to enhance immune function and soothe tissues of the GI tract.
