VIDEO: Blueberries as a therapeutic approach in chronic diseases?
Inflammation is at the root of many medical conditions, from acute infections to chronic conditions like arthritis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and even cancer.
But instead of treating the cause, inflammation is often only numbed with painkillers. However, this can have serious consequences, such as gastrointestinal problems, nausea or abdominal pain. In this article, we'll show you how to fight inflammation naturally - with blueberries.
What is inflammation?
Inflammation is a normal body response to infection or injury. However, they can also be triggered by chronic stress, poor diet, pollution, and other factors. Chronic inflammation can lead to pain, swelling, and tissue damage, increasing the risk of chronic disease.
Painkiller abuse as a taboo subject?
In conventional medicine, inflammation is often treated with painkillers to relieve the pain. However, the abuse of painkillers is a taboo subject in the pharmaceutical industry. Many people are not aware that painkillers can also have serious side effects, such as gastrointestinal discomfort, nausea or abdominal pain.
Alternative solutions with blueberries!
However, there are alternative solutions that do more than just treat the symptoms. A promising solution is the use of blueberries. Blueberries are high in antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties. A study has shown that blueberries can have anti-inflammatory effects similar to ibuprofen, but without the negative side effects.
How Blueberries Fight Inflammation!
The anti-inflammatory properties of blueberries are due to their anthocyanins, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. These anthocyanins reduce the production of inflammatory cytokines and increase the production of anti-inflammatory cytokines. In addition, blueberries can also reduce the activity of enzymes associated with inflammation.
Blueberries as an adaptogen!
Blueberries can also be considered an adaptogen as they help increase the body's ability to adapt to stress. Blueberries can help protect the body from oxidative stress.
