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. It is essential to maintain normal inflammatory balance to achieve optimal health.
Turmeric: Curcumin is the active compound in turmeric and has been shown to have strong NFkB-modulating properties and plays a crucial role in maintaining normal inflammatory balance. Studies have shown that curcumin specifically maintains normal inflammatory balance in the most significant GI challenges.
Green Tea has been used for centuries as a health tonic, is a potent antioxidant and is effective for maintaining normal inflammatory balance. Its most researched active component, EGCg, has been repeatedly shown to protect against free radical damage and balance markers of inflammation.
Larch Arabinogalactan is a fermentable polysaccharide fiber from the larch tree that promotes optimal immune health by supporting the growth of beneficial gut flora and strengthening the activity of NK cells.
Skullcap Root Extract is a popular Chinese botanical that has been shown to maintain normal inflammatory balance and support cardiovascular health. Skullcap possesses potent antioxidant properties. Research has shown it attenuates NFkB and inhibits COX-2 expression.
Quercetin is a flavonoid found in a variety of botanicals, vegetables and fruits. It is a potent antioxidant that inhibits inducible ICAM-1 expression, an important pathway for maintaining normal inflammatory balance. Quercetin has also been shown to enhance epithelial barrier function in the intestines by stabilizing mast cells through the release of cell-protective factors.
Glutamine and Glycine are amino acids 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 has 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 a healthy balance of probiotic bacteria in the GI tract.
Vitamin D: One of the key functions of vitamin D is its ability to tighten gap junctions in the intestinal lining to create a strong barrier that protects the body from foreign substances. 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.
