There is a variety of things that can cause our body to have excess inflammation: poor diet, lack of exercise, illness, cancer, and many other things. What scientists are finding now is that this excess inflammation in our body can contribute to and cause a number of diseases. In fact, inflammation is involved in 8 of the top ten leading causes of death in the United States. If we look at our health from an inflammation standpoint – if we could get the inflammation in our bodies under control – we would be might be able to live longer and healthier lives.
One of the side effects of inflammation is the formation of free radicals; which can lead to oxidative stress, and an increase in inflammation. This vicious cycle can prevent us from fully healing after injuries, illness or poor lifestyle choices. As our bodies continue to go downhill we tend to accept that things like diabetes, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s are just what happens to us as we age. But research shows that we don’t have to accept this outcome.
One of the keys to the elimination of inflammation caused by injury, disease, or external irritants is anti-oxidants. Scientists and research show that Carbon 60 (C60) is a superior anti-oxidant.
