Inflammation is an essential first-step in the immune system’s healing response. It’s literally a lifesaver, the first line of defense against harmful bacteria, pollutants, and viruses.
So why does inflammation so often get a bad rap? Inflammation becomes a problem when it can’t be resolved once its job is done. This has become all too common, unfortunately. For too many of us, our inflammatory response has become hyper-reactive, and chronically triggered. We find ourselves living with pain and shrugging it off as just the way it is. But does it have to be?
Dietary Fats and the Healing Process
The human body is capable of producing an astonishing spectrum of fats from dietary sources, with the exception of two groups: omega-3s and omega-6s. These essential fats must be obtained from either diet or supplementation. Omega-6s are the source of the eicosanoid signals that largely initiate our inflammatory response, while omega-3s help resolve it.*
Between these two, the predominant fat in our diets is unquestionably omega-6. Omega-6s come from many sources, but mostly from “vegetable” oils like soybean, sunflower, and safflower oil. Once omega-6s accumulate in the body, they have the unfortunate consequence of ramping up the inflammatory immune response to unnecessary levels.*
The key to ensuring an appropriate inflammatory response is maintaining an adequate intake of omega-3s, which are found mostly in wild-caught, fatty fish. But many of us don’t get enough of these dietary fats—specifically, EPA and DHA. For that reason, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) recommends daily servings of omega-3s EPA and DHA, whether through food sources or supplementation. This serves the dual purpose of both correcting pervasive omega-3 deficits and combating abnormally large intakes of omega-6s.*
In addition to omega-3s, other nutrients also offer benefits for managing the body’s inflammatory response. And since our environment is loaded with more triggers than ever (e.g. pollutants), nutritional backup is welcome. Curcumin has long been recognized as a homeopathic solution to help manage inflammation, and it’s increasingly recognized by science as beneficial.*
What is Curcumin?
Curcumin is the most active component of turmeric, a tropical plant and spice in the ginger family. Curcumin is what gives turmeric its bright yellow-orange color. It has a wide range of beneficial properties, including anti-inflammatory and antioxidant functions.*
What makes curcumin such a powerful nutrient is that it works by influencing not just a single inflammatory pathway, but multiple pathways to promote a healthy, balanced inflammatory response. Curcumin also has potent antioxidant activity, neutralizing the chain reaction of free radical formation, offering further support for a healthy immune and inflammatory response.*
Bioavailability is Key
Unfortunately, getting curcumin in your body isn't as easy as just eating more delicious South Asian delicacies. Curcumin is known to be poorly absorbed by the human body, and this has always been seen as limiting its nutritional potential.
Newer innovations in supplemental curcumin formulation, however, have made it possible to produce curcumin in a form that is readily absorbable and utilized by the body. Curcumin, especially when combined with omega-3s EPA and DHA, delivers a potent one-two nutritional punch that supports an ideal inflammatory response*
