Inflammation is part of the body’s immune response; without it, we can’t heal. But when it’s out of control—as in rheumatoid arthritis—it can damage the body. Plus, it’s thought to play a role in obesity, heart disease, and cancer.

Chase Life Extension Foundation director Rachael D’Aguiar has spent a lot of time working with top scientists around the world and one of the major and surprising connections spoken about from everyone from Neuroscientists to dietians to heart and anti-ageing experts is inflammation. Whether it is induced by injury or diet it can cause more than just the ‘pain and swelling’ that the word ‘inflammation’ brings to mind.

An appropriate phrase has now been coined to explain the disruption that could be occuring without the pain and swelling to make it obvious and that is ‘Silent Inflammation’. Not all inflammation causes pain, but it can cause damage.

Silent inflammation is a condition that occurs when your body’s immune system responses are out of whack. Instead of using inflammation as a temporary response to an illness or injury, the body enters a state of chronic inflammation that you probably can’t even feel.

This inflammation puts pressure on your brain, heart, organs, etc., causing them to deteriorate or otherwise damaging them, leading to long-term health concerns and disease.

Cancer, heart disease, neurological conditions (such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, depression and attention deficit disorder), autoimmune diseases (like multiple sclerosis, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis) and chronic pain from constant migraines and fibromyalgia have all been linked to damage caused by silent inflammation.

How can you tell if you’re at risk? PositiveMed.com have a list of symptoms to watch for: “Some common symptoms of silent body information are chronic fatigue, recurring sinus infections, gastrointestinal issues, mood disorders and chronic vaginal and urinary tract infections, according to U.S. News & World Report. You may also experience headaches, dizziness, achy joints and a growing sensitivity to chemicals used in perfumes, cleaning agents and pesticides.”

Other symptoms include obesity and difficulty losing weight, carb and sugar cravings, brittle fingernails, high cholesterol and hormone imbalances.

When you know what can cause Silent Inflammation you realise that the majority of us are at risk of this silent killer. They include:

  • Pollution/environmental toxins
  • Drugs and alcohol
  • Stress
  • Too little sleep
  • Lack of exercise
  • Medications
  • Damage from bad bacteria or parasites
  • Poor diet

Foods high in sugar and saturated fat can spur inflammation. “They cause overactivity in the immune system, which can lead to joint pain, fatigue, and damage to the blood vessels,” says Scott Zashin, MD, clinical professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.

You can see from the causes of Silent Inflammation and Chronic Inflammation that detoxifying your system and adding oxygen to help heal your cells and grow your good microbes will be of great benefit, hence why Elixigene’s range is so beneficial for you.

Some other things to aim for, which are not only specific to inflammation of course but will also aid with overall health are:

  • Pro-biotics to assist with gut inflammation
  • Relaxation to reduce stress and lower inflammation
  • Regular exercise, which will help with stress as well as weight maintainence
  • And, a biggie, AVOID inflammatory foods such as sugar.
