ENCORE: Break the Vicious Cycle of Chronic Inflammation, Part 1


An exciting, versatile new supplement: Specialized Pro-Resolving Mediators (SPMs) are compounds that protect the body. Nutritionist Georgia Austin explains how they work: they are a category of compounds that are generated naturally to break the vicious cycle of chronic inflammation. They are derived from EPA and DHA, the omega 3 constituents of fish oil. But under conditions of disease, aging, stress, or nutritional compromise their conversion from EPA and DHA is hampered. Research suggests that supplementation with SPMs can help with many inflammatory disorders. Austin relates her experience applying SPM to a wide variety of conditions; it’s applicable to metabolic syndrome and diabetes, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disorders like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, respiratory conditions like asthma and COPD, inflammatory bowel disease, neurodegenerative disorders, endometriosis and even fibromyalgia. SPM may also hasten recovery from post-exercise soreness. Can it be taken for general prevention? Is it safe for kids? Are there any contraindications? How much do you need to take? Does taking them obviate the need for fish oil? Click HERE for part 2.
