ACUTE INFLAMMATION: THE QUICK FIX

Acute inflammation is your body’s reaction to something foreign, such as viruses, bacteria, allergens and trauma. When the foreign invader is no longer a threat, the inflammatory response should return to its healthy state: ready but not active.

Acute inflammation is an important immune response that protects you from infection and repairs tissues following injury. In most cases it is short-lived because the stimulus that triggered its activation is no longer present. The immune system has done its job of destroying the pathogens and healing the damaged tissues.

CHRONIC INFLAMMATION: THE SLOW BURN

But what happens when the inflammatory stimulus doesn’t go away? Many of the environmental signals that trigger inflammation are less obvious, continuous threats that keep the immune system functioning at a low level for a long period of time. This leads to chronic inflammation — a lowgrade, systemic condition often without any immediate symptoms. Over time, chronic inflammation slowly destroys tissues, leading to cumulative and serious damage.

Epigenetics: All in the Family

Nature and Nurture

Everyone has genetic predispositions, those things that “run in the family.” For many this is a list of conditions such as obesity, heart disease, diabetes and arthritis. Sound familiar? Epigenetics brings a positive perspective to the fear and uncertainty that comes from checking all those boxes on a health history form. We now know that healthy lifestyle choices have the power to influence and even override our faulty genetic codes.

Families pass on both DNA and lifestyle habits that serve as epigenetic signals to that DNA. Nutritional choices, exercise, stress management and environmental exposures all influence whether genes get turned on or remain silent. While epigenetic marks are reversible (e.g. activated genes can be deactivated), healthy habits that start early in life can prevent negative genes from ever being activated in the first place.

Redefining Sports Nutrition

The term “sports nutrition” invokes images of buff gym rats lugging around kegs of protein powder, as well as lithe distance runners throwing back concoctions of carbs and electrolytes en route to the finish line. Yes, these types of athletes have unique nutritional needs and use specialty supplements to support their performance goals. But sports nutrition can benefit more than just elite athletes. In fact, you don’t have to be an “athlete” at all to benefit from the research and products labeled for sport. Continue reading “Inflammation and the Changing Face of Sports Nutrition”
