Most conventional forms of treating inflammation attempt to thin your blood to reduce pressure to affected zones. Blood represents your body's way of dealing with the underlying cause of inflammation, by removing damaged, dead tissue and repairing affected areas. Infla-Heal contains a variety of specialized enzymes, such as protease, amylase, and lipase, which help accelerate your body's natural healing process, as well as elimination of damaged tissue. Thus, Infla-Heal Plus does not remove your body's mechanism to heal (blood), but instead helps attack the underlying cause of inflammation.
INFLA-HEAL PLUS is a specific combination of digestive and anti-inflammatory enzymes with antioxidants and metabolic cofactors. It is extremely effective for the treatment of chronic and acute inflammation.
Inflammation is the body's natural reaction to physical, chemical and metabolic stress as well as injuries that initiate tissue damage.
When taken between meals, INFLA-HEAL PLUS works synergistically to reduce the inflammation that causes soft tissue damage. When taken with meals (or within one hour after), the digestive enzymes in INFLA-HEAL PLUS aid the small intestines in the role of digesting fats, proteins and carbohydrates. INFLA-HEAL PLUS helps maintain healthy intestines and reduces upset stomach due to certain foods.
The repeated physical process of inflammation can cause major tissue damage, and should be monitored and controlled. Clinical attributes include burning, swelling, discoloration, edema, and increased reactions to allergies and food intolerances. In a healthy person, inflammation initiates the process of ridding the body of damaged tissue, and rejuvenating the damaged area. However, when designated inflammatory pathways are abnormal or crippled, a chronic state of inflammation can develop and persist, causing physical restraints and pain.
INFLA-HEAL PLUS also contains various enzymes, which disable macromolecular components during the increase of inflammation, while antioxidants remove free radicals produced during the formation of chronic and acute inflammation. INFLA- HEAL PLUS provides enzymes from both plant and animal sources, each contributing to their different mechanisms to reduce this type of macromolecular onset.
INFLA-HEAL contains Trypsin, an enzyme that acts to degrade protein and is often referred to as a proteolytic enzyme, or proteinase. Trypsin is one of the three principal digestive proteinases, the other two being pepsin and chymotrypsin. In the digestive process, trypsin acts with the other proteinases to break down dietary protein molecules to their component peptides and amino acids. Trypsin continues the process of digestion (begun in the stomach) in the small intestine where a slightly alkaline environment (about pH 8) promotes its maximal enzymatic activity. Trypsin and Chymotrypsin are both potent animal enzymes, which effectively break down protein. Undigested protein is said to produce inflammation in the human body.
Lipase breaks down fats and Amylase breaks down carbohydrates.
Papain from papaya and Bromelain from pineapple are complex enzymes that are combined to resist degradation from the conditions that prevail in the human digestive tract, and are both potent digestants. Bromelain has prostaglandin regulating properties in addition to its proteolytic enzyme activity. Prostaglandin cascades are involved in the formation of inflammation, and by turning pro- inflammatory into anti-inflammatory, bromelain can moderate the symptoms, and shorten recovery time. Reducing prostaglandin production as well results in quicker recovery time. Bromelain can also ameliorate excessive clotting which is attributed to inflammation.
Rutin is a bioflavonoid derived from the Eucalyptus tree, it has potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) is an enzyme and the body's main antioxidant defence towards controlling inflammation. SOD is the only enzyme that has the capability to process superoxide, an oxygen radical that is overproduced during inflammation.
Catalase is an antioxidant enzyme that cleans up more of the oxygen free radicals down the line after SOD. Catalase is a peroxidase type of enzyme that neutralises hydrogen peroxide by converting it into water and oxygen. L- Cysteine is a super antioxidant for the liquid area surrounding the cells in your body.
L-Cysteine also maintains a balance of reduced glutathione (GSH) which is a part of each and every single cell. Any upset in the balance of GSH can aid the destruction or dieoff of cells.
Zinc (gluconate salt) is an essential mineral that works synergistically with the enzyme SOD. It is also a partner with 30 other essential enzymes, some of which are pertinent for immune cells to be able to produce new cells to maintain chronic inflammation under control.
Global research conducted on the ingredients in INFLA-HEAL is known to alleviate the following conditions:
Arthritis, tendinitis, joint damage, bursitis, sport impact injuries Muscle aches, bruises, sprains, swelling, tightness, injuries Wound healing, surgery recovery, burns, cuts, thrombophlebitis, hematomas.
INFLA-HEAL PLUS can help you overcome the pain and impaired mobility of sports injuries. Sports injuries are becoming increasingly prevalent as more and more health conscious people start to exercise daily. Most sports and exercise injuries are either contusions involving injuries just below the surface of the skin or sprains in which the ligaments around a joint are injured. In almost all cases, if you are injured, initial therapy should consist of cooling compression, and rest.
Typically aspirin, ibuprofen, or other type nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are used (NSAID) for sports and exercise injuries, particularly when there is inflammation. However, when used chronically, these medications have many complications. For example NSAIDs are irritating to the stomach and, based on extensive clinical experience, they cause microscopic bleeding after about three days of use in virtually everyone. This can progress and cause ulcers and other gastrointestinal problems when used over extended periods of time.
INFLA-HEAL's enzymes are such powerful and broad-spectrum biological response modifiers that, while you are treating the pain and inflammation of your sports injury extremely safely, you'll also be reducing your future risk for a heart attack, stroke, cancer, kidney disease, arthritis, lupus, and many other degenerative conditions.
In earlier years on enzymology, it was thought that oral ingestion of enzymes was not beneficial, due to lack of assimilation through the stomach. With today's modern testing and chromatographic analysis equipment, it has been established that the type of enzymes used in INFLA-HEAL are absorbed in substantial quantities and are transported in the blood to the swollen tissue areas where they hinder inflammation production. New Roots suggests INFLA-HEAL PLUS to help the body control inflammation problems that, left unattended, may lead to chronic life-threatening diseases.
