Sulforaphane found in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels  sprouts, cauliflower, and cabbage has been associated with the up-regulation of antioxidant and detoxification enzymes in the body. Recent studies revealed an anti-inflammatory response in patients supplementing with sulforaphane. Clinical studies showed increased detoxification of carcinogens, an indirect increase of anti-oxidative cellular potential, and inhibition of inflammation.

In 2015, Xu Wang, PhD and colleagues conducted the first comprehensive systematic review and meta-analysis of risk and protective factors for Alzheimer’s Disease that could be modified via personal, clinical and public strategy. Their findings suggested an effective diet, relevant medications, appropriate biochemical exposures, psychological condition, preexisting disease and life-style changes may be promising options for preventative strategies in Alzheimer’s Disease. Healthy dietary pattern, high folate intake, cognitive activity, high Ab42/Ab40 ratio, fish consumption, high education, physical activity and high…

While inflammation is at the root of all sorts of poor outcomes and diseases it isn’t the fault of inflammation itself. Indeed, inflammation is a natural and protective response to specific insults and injuries. Healthy inflammation resolves naturally when you get a cut, for example. When inflammation becomes chronic, however, it can become destructive to the body’s tissues and systems. Long-term, chronic inflammation due to disease, a pro-inflammatory diet, or aging should be resolved as much as possible. Download the…

Acute inflammation is healthy for the body, but when inflammation becomes chronic, is can damage tissues and be detrimental to health. The resolution of inflammation involves the termination of neutrophil recruitment, counterregulation of proinflammatory mediators, stimulation of macrophage-mediated clearance, and tissue remodeling. This review of the evidence that the failure of resolution programs contributes to metabolic diseases and that SPMs may play pivotal roles in their resolution found that supplementing the diet with SPMs can, indeed, reduce the chronic low-grade…

Inflammaging is a term that describes how immune system function deteriorates as we age. In individuals, it is determined by a variety of interrelated genetic and environmental factors, also known as epigenetics. This infographic shows how our bodies can become susceptible to inflammating and its effects. When we are young, we typically have good resolution of inflammation, low pro-inflammatory status, and a highly efficient stress response. Thus, most healthy young people do not suffer the negative consequences of inflammaging. However,…

Acute inflammation is essential to health—and, so too, is its resolution. Pathologists divide acute inflammation into 2 parts: Initiation Resolution When microbes invade the body by barrier break, tissue injury or trauma, they set into motion a cascade of events. The first part of this cascade is the initiation phase, also known as the acute inflammatory response, and as Dr. Serhan notes, “is actually protective of the host organism” because it signals the need for the second part or resolution phase of the…

This research review on Specialized Pro-resolving Mediators (SPMs) covers a novel nutritional approach to resolve inflammation. Acute and chronic inflammation is a widespread common experience in many who suffer from weight gain, as well as cardio metabolic disease and can be brought into resolution with the introduction clinical nutrition therapy and the use of SPMs to aid in the return to homeostasis, therefore reducing inflammation. This study demonstrates the use of SPM therapy in animal models of human disease.Acute inflammation…

How does chronic inflammation reinforce and cause chronic disease? Inputs like a sedentary lifestyle, obesity, and aging are associated with chronic systems inflammation throughout the whole body. This infographic illustrates the cascade from the input to the system inflammation to the resultant disease state. Disease states associated with inflammation include type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis, neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, and arthritis.
