Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia, Immune booster Fibromyalgia is thought to be a disease in which the immune system is chronically overactive. One of the main culprits is a pro- inflammatory cytokine IL-6, believed to be involved in the over activity of the immune system in people with fibromyalgia. Plant sterols have been shown to decrease IL-6 by approx 25%. (1)

Fibromyalgia has also been theorized to be partially due to an increase in free radicals, with fewer antioxidants and more oxidative damage being measured in people with fibromyalgia. Celt Immuno-Care® contains important antioxidants (Enzogenol™) capable of reducing free radicals that contribute to the development of muscle pain and fatigue disorders.* (2,3)
