Inflammation is one of the latest buzzwords these days, but what does it actually mean?
Inflammation is the body's immune response and way of defending itself against infections and pathogenic invaders. We need inflammation in order to heal from injuries, trauma, and infections.
Acute inflammatory reactions can look like bruising, redness, pain, swelling, or heat.
This is the good kind of inflammation that we want to have happen, but when it becomes ongoing and chronic, this is when we can see trouble.
Any condition ending with itis is an inflammatory condition. These may include arthritis, colitis, hepatitis, and dermatitis.
However many conditions and symptoms can be driven from inflammation such as acne, heart disease, autoimmune disease, Alzheimer's, blood sugar imbalances, and hormonal issues.
In fact, inflammation is said to be the root cause of most diseases which is why it's so important to maintain it under control.
Symptoms of chronic inflammation can look like fatigue, depression, skin conditions, chest pain, and joint pain. Causes of chronic inflammation may include environmental toxins, poor diet, obesity, gut dysbiosis, smoking, stress, and insomnia.
This is why addressing your root imbalances is key to reversing chronic inflammation in the body. However, there are supplements that can help to lower inflammation and that can be used to promote healing at the same time that you work on diet and lifestyle factors.
Learn how you can quench inflammation with the help of Enerex.
Enerex Black Seed Oil
What is black seed oil? Black seed has been used in ancient civilizations to relieve and treat conditions such as digestive upset, hepatitis, and respiratory illnesses.
Its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects have been shown to help decrease asthma and upper respiratory symptoms by decreasing inflammation in the airways. Black seed has also been shown to improve rheumatoid arthritis symptoms and cardiovascular conditions.
You can take Black Seed in water or juice as an anti-inflammatory supplement.

Serrapeptase is a natural proteolytic enzyme that comes from silkworms, gross we know, but it can be highly effective so we encourage you to keep an open mind.
Serrapeptase has been traditionally used for its anti-inflammatory qualities and in particular to speed up wound healing and tissue repair, break down mucus, reduce pain and swelling, treat arthritis symptoms and protect cardiovascular health.
It has even been used as a superior natural alternative to drugs such as NSAIDs to treat pain and inflammation, without some of the negative side effects. This enzyme can also be taken alongside certain antibiotics to improve the efficacy of the medication by breaking down bacterial biofilms that may be resistant.
Enerex Serrapeptase uses a high activity enzyme for greater effectiveness and our special Delayed Release capsule protects the enzyme from destruction by stomach acid to ensure you get the relief you require.
