If you’re reading this, then you’re probably a health conscious person. And as a health-conscious person, I’m assuming you spend some resources on good, healthy food - whether that be time, money, energy, thought, or all of the above.
Are you starting your day with a bowlful of inflammation?
WHAT IS INFLAMMATION?
Your immune system recognizes foreign invaders (pathogens, bacteria) and fights them off in a process called inflammation. Immune cells produce cytokines and oxidants, which wipe out invading organisms and damaged tissue. This process is good and necessary for our recovery and health. However, problems arise when your body is constantly fighting off offending situations (chronic stress, poor diet, unregulated blood sugar, gut issues) - leading to widespread inflammation.
