How To Detox In 7 Days

Why should you care about inflammation?

Short term inflammation in body fights the flu and repairs paper cuts. Inflammation that is very subtle and long term is harmful for the body. It can sometimes be dangerous because it can go unnoticed and worsen overtime due to low visibility. This kind of inflammation can occur in your gut, arteries and tissues of organs. This has been suggested to be a precursor for diseases such as arthritis, ulcerative colitis, strokes and others that are not well researched enough to make valid connections.

 

Inflammation that occurs in arteries is common in heart disease. One study shows when fat builds up in the arteries, the body will fight back with inflammation which will cause blood clots that can lead to strokes and heart attacks.

 

Giving your body a chance to detox with anti-inflammatory foods will help kick-start your body for a healthier, feel-good lifestyle.
