Supplements Can Help With Inflammation

Jul 31, 2012 08:03AM ● By Thierry Lerond

Anti-inflammatory supplements seem to be at the top of many shopping lists. These days, people are educating themselves and understanding that inflammation just isn’t something that occurs after an injury. It can be more serious than that.

Inflammation is a side effect in the human body that people want to get control over before it gets control over them. Those who prefer natural supplements are researching fish oils as one method to reduce inflammation.

When finding a supplement, it’s best to locate a company backed by clinical studies. The top supplements to help with inflammation are:

  • shark liver oil
  • wild, organic fucoidan containing seaweed
  • wild Antarctic krill oil

These supplements are necessary in a daily diet. Inflammation is the body’s normal response to either injury or germ invasion. The effects which come from it may be a combination of pain, heat and redness. The body responds to this injury by forcing the immune system to work hard.

Although this is a normal response, sometimes the immune system gets confused and attacks the body, like in cases of arthritis. Autoimmune diseases such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis fall under this category. There’s also a medical term floating out there called “whole-body inflammation.” This means that an ongoing low level of inflammation may become chronic, and over a long period of time, people may face ailments such as heart disease, depression, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, obesity and much more.

Marine supplements have been proven to be one of the best natural anti-inflammatory ways to treat this disorder because it boosts the immune system. A healthy immune system is a critical shield.

Remember, not all supplements are the same so buy high quality. The ocean is abundant with medicinal finds which help people with an array of inflammatory conditions. Feeling healthier and more energized is only a supplement away.
