What does healthy inflammation even mean?
MegaFood | Nov. 2020
When we hear the word “inflammation,” it is likely we immediately think of it as a bad thing - the swollen, sore, redness of an injury, perhaps. The reality is that inflammation is a helpful and necessary response of the body that is an important part of maintaining your health. This response is natural, but can sometimes become exaggerated by things such as diet, stress, and lifestyle, which is where concerns may arise.
Essentially, “Inflammation is the immune system's response to harmful stimuli, and acts by removing injurious stimuli and initiating the healing process. Inflammation is therefore a defense mechanism that is vital to health.”1 When this response, however, becomes exaggerated and prolonged, tissue damage can result.Footnote 1 By supporting a healthy inflammation response, whether through diet or supplementation, you are able to aid your body in executing this natural function in a healthy way.
One of the most common ways to do this is by adding a turmeric supplement to your foundational wellness routine. Turmeric contains a compound of nutrients called curcuminoids, which have been intensely studied for their role in supporting the inflammation response in the body. At MegaFood, we prioritize domestically sourced organic turmeric, grown sustainably from our Farm Partner Kauai Organic Farms on the North Shore of Hawaii, to offer a range of unique formulations.
Whether you prefer tablets, powders, or even gummies, we have options to help you support a healthy inflammation response in a way that works for you!*
