An adaptive response triggered by infection or tissue injury.
A central component of innate immunity. It's a local response to cellular injury and marked by increased blood flow, capillary dilatation, white blood cell infiltration, and localised production of a host of chemical mediators.
A ‘friend and foe’: a successful acute inflammatory response results in the elimination of the offending agents followed by a resolution and repair phase.
If this response fails to eliminate the pathogen or the stress is ongoing, the inflammatory process becomes chronic.
Wherever you are on the wellness spectrum- from elite athlete to those struggling with chronic disease- Root Rescue offers a daily dose of anti-inflammatory nutrition to help manage chronic low-grade inflammation.
