Stop Inflammation Before it Starts

Inflammation is the precursor to many short- and long-term ailments. Some sources are obvious and some are not. One thing is certain: Prevention is better than cure. Here are five tips to prevent inflammation.

o  Eat nutritious foods that are not processed and do not overindulge in sugary foods.

o  Get a good night's rest. Sleep deprivation leads to a weaker immune system, which can make us more susceptible to inflammation and infection.

o  Regular exercise helps to detoxify the body and builds a strong immune response.

o  Take vitamins A, C, D, E, zinc and fish oil to support a healthy immune system that prevents inflammation.

o  Keep your endocannabinoid system in homeostasis by taking cannabidiol (CBD) to support endogenous endocannabinoids anandamide and 2 arachidonyl glycerol to help combat stress which causes inflammation.
