Stop Inflammation

Part 3 "How To Smother The Fires of Inflammation"


In one study of 22,000 men, almost 100 persons died of sudden cardiac arrest (heart attack.) All of these victims had one thing in common...high levels of C-reactive protein.

No less than 11 studies have now shown that people with high levels of CRP are at greater risk of having a heart attack or a stroke.

Can we stop this inflammation? Fortunately the answer is a resounding yes...but it may require some significant changes in how most of us eat. Berries should definitely be on your menu. They contain inflammation-dampening polyphenols, and flavonoids that discourage oxidative damage.

Some of the most powerful inflammation fighters include cold-water fish such as salmon, tuna, halibut, trout, sardines and mackerel.

If you're not a big fish eater or can't get wild fish in your area you should take a daily omega 3 oil supplement that includes pharmaceutical grade fish oil.

It's also important to get your fish oil from a source that has been molecularly distilled to remove dangerous heavy metals and contaminants.

Bernie and I use and recommend the Ultimate Omega Complex by Vital Life Nutritionals. This fish oil comes from fish harvested off the cold clean waters of Northern Norway and is processed in a GMP pharmaceutical facility.

Borage and flax seed oils are organic and cold pressed. I'm convinced that Ultimate Omega is the best omega 3 oil complex on the market. You can find it here.

We also need a high quality all natural vitamin with optimum amount of antioxidants. A one-a-day cheap vitamin just doesn’t provide you with the protection your heart needs.

Exercise also dramatically reduces the amount of inflammation in the blood. A new study at the renowned Cooper Clinic in Dallas, Texas compared the amount of CRP in people with varying levels of fitness.

Those with the highest fitness levels had nearly a 300% lower risk of having a heart attack than those at the lowest fitness levels!

Tomorrow in Part 4 we will discuss how oxidation works and what you can do about.

Watch for it in your email!
