This is a great addition to anyone's daily routine to support their health.
However, an overactive system and therefore too much inflammation can cause damage throughout the body. This happens when there's a perceived threat that doesn't exist or a persistent one that does. The body continues to respond and send out cells which eventually begin to attack healthy cells and tissues in the body. Another factor is visceral fat cells that show up in the abdomen and wrap around organs. The immune system sees them as a threat and triggers inflammation. The underlying cause to this damage done by persistent inflammation is said to be free radicals.
Skin and digestive problems, pain, fatigue, hay fever, depression, anxiety and stiffness are some of the ways that inflammation begins to show up. Left unchecked it can lead to arthritis, atherosclerosis, asthma and cancer to name a few. Reducing inflammation addresses a major underlying cause for these issues.
Pollution and environmental toxins, smoking, drinking, chronic stress, obesity, diets high in omega 6 fatty acids, trans fats and high glycemic foods are some of the worst offenders contributing to chronic and persistent inflammation.

About the herbs..
Turmeric Root: This pungent and warming herb is revered for its anti-inflammatory properties which are backed by modern research showing it to work to sensitize the body's cortisol receptor sites.

It has been shown to lower blood cholesterol and prevent the formation of clots. It is a digestive aid and somewhat bitter herb. It helps to stabilize microflora in the digestive system and inhibit yeast overgrowth. It is also an effective immune-enhancing herb. It is regarded as safe for all ages and stages.
