Inflammation Linked to Aging
AS WE AGE, INFLAMMATION INFLICTS DEVASTATING EFFECTS throughout the body. The top three killers today are heart attack, cancer and stroke. Studies show that chronic inflammation plays a significant role in the development of each of these serious diseases as well as arthritis.
Inflammation is a natural way in which the immune system reacts to infection, irritation or injury. But in some cases, the immune system triggers an unnecessary inflammatory response as if normal tissues are infected or abnormal. This damages the body and accelerates aging.
Enzymes Speed Healing
Supplementation with systemic enzymes, which break down proteins, moderates the inflammatory cycle and enhances the healing process, according to a study in the July issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Sugery.
The study was conducted over two 21-day phases in which subjects experienced enhanced wound healing. Subjects responding to oral supplements healed three days sooner than the placebo group, representing a 17 percent acceleration of wound healing time. Researchers observed decreased redness in the wounds, which may have been associated with reduced inflammation. The researchers concluded that enzyme supplementation accelerated wound healing in 77 percent of normal, healthy subjects studied,
