Vitamin C And Inflammation

Vitamin C And Inflammation

Inflammation is thought to be a factor for many illnesses, it seems to be associated with things like cancer, autoimmune, heart disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, ageing and even skin wrinkling.

In regard to inflammation, what are some of the causes?

First and foremost, it’s pretty much what we eat and what we drink.

Inflammation is the body’s natural response to safeguard against foreign bacteria, viruses, and infection. When it senses a threat, the body will trigger the release of chemicals and white blood cells our body’s germ fighters. 

Inflammation can be brought on by too much stress, a sedentary lifestyle, smoking, vaping and a poor diet filled with processed foods, sugar too much, fizzy drinks too much, caffeine too much, alcohol too much, fast foods too much, medication.

Anything in moderation or as a treat but too much of anything isn’t great for our wellbeing.

Everything you consume affects you.

Things To Watch

If you're having problems, avoid foods that upset your gut, make changes to your diet, try eating differently for several weeks - by doing this you’ll be able to see if you notice any difference in the way you feel. Change of diet can help reset your immune system and inflammatory response.

Balance Out Fats

Too little omega-3 and omega 6 fats and too much hydrogenated fats can result in inflammation.

Avoid fried foods. Eat fish several times a week but if you are vegetarian, vegan you’ll need to include sources of omega-3 fats like hemp, chia and flax seeds.

Plant foods are for everyone. Plants contain a diverse array of vitamins and minerals and perhaps most importantly phytonutrients such as sulforaphane and anthocyanin where these compounds can reduce inflammation which in turn helps prevent illness.

When we don’t get enough sleep, inflammation levels can increase. During sleep, our bodies regenerate. Not enough sleep can affect the immune system and is said to increase inflammation. 

The norm is said to be 7 to 8 hours of sleep a day. 

Another thing that’s helpful is to limit screen time a few hours before bed, this can support better sleep and adequate melatonin. 

If you have insomnia or poor-quality sleep, it may increase risk of inflammation.

Time In Nature

When we are in touch with nature or the ocean our bodies are able to drop the built-up of accumulated energy, which can give us the opportunity to pick up energetically, this can have an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect on the body, so too can grounding, this is another way of being in touch with nature. Kick off your shoes and go bare feet on the grass, on the sand, on the earth, this can reduce pain, it can support circulation which can support inflammation.

Let’s not forget natural anti-inflammatory agents such as ginger, Boswellia and turmeric. It’s all Nature’s Way to Support Us.
