Inflammatory Disease

Chronic inflammation is involved in diseases as diverse as hardening of the arteries, heart valve dysfunction, obesity, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and others. Whenever there is an increase in IL-6, there is trouble. There is good correlation between spiked levels of IL-6 and the conditions above. Celt Immuno-Care® showed in a clinical trial a reduction in IL-6.

Inflammatory disease, immune system boosters

The other marker that affects disease is C-reactive protein, a molecule that is released in the blood in response to inflammation. This marker is now being used to determine the amount of inflammation in the body. It is being used in conjunction with other tests especially in determining the risk factors for CVD. Plant sterols have been shown to reduce CRP.*
