Most of us think of inflammation as a visible swelling. For instance, a bump on the head or the swelling with infections. But the fact is that most inflammation in your body goes on invisibly, and constantly at the cellular level.
This damage “injury” is not due to macro injuries. They are micro injuries usually caused by free radical damage that is not life threatening. But, is enough to produce the inflammation response.
When it occurs, your body produces inflammatory chemicals called leukotrienes that can then damage cell membranes and accelerate aging. They can react with the cell walls of your skin cells. Also the layer of the cells immediately beneath the skin. Breaking down collagen and hyaluronic acid that gives fullness and youthful looking skin. When the cell membranes break down you get wrinkles, age spots and sagging skin. Some estimate that 50 percent of all skin aging is due to this micro-inflammation. What can you do about it?
Here are Steps To Consider to Help Reduce Accelerated Cell Aging Caused by Inflammation:
Sugar is a major cause of this in the body. Especially refined sugar! Try to stay under 7 grams per serving during any two hour period. Doing this will help keep you from having an insulin response. This can trigger excess cortisol release in the body, thus triggering inflammation. Avoid high fructose corn syrup like the plague… Any amount of this “poison” can shock your system and lead to inflammation!
