What is inflammation?
Did you know that inflammation is a complex biological response fundamental to how the body deals with injury and infection? Inflammation is your body’s first response when needing to eliminate the initial cause of cell injury and to effect repair.
Unlike a normally beneficial acute inflammatory response, chronic inflammation can lead to tissue damage and ultimately its destruction, and often results from an inappropriate immune response. Inflammation in the nervous system (“neuroinflammation”), especially when prolonged, can be particularly injurious.
