Inflammation is your body’s way of protecting itself from injury or infection. It may cause pain, swelling, redness, and bruising.
Acute inflammation is a short-term response that helps your body heal. It usually goes away on its own within a few days or weeks.
On the other hand, chronic inflammation is a long-term response that can damage your tissues and organs.
Unhealthy Foods & Inflammation
Highly processed, unhealthy foods can change the type and number of bacteria in our gut.
This can lead to a different immune response, which over time may cause chronic inflammation.
Chronic inflammation has been linked to chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and dementia.
To further prevent your risk of chronic disease, check out this “10 Aging Biomarkers Checklist“.
