Inflammation is your body’s way of healing itself.
Inflammation is a reaction to injury or infection. In the body’s natural cycle of activity and recovery, blood and nutrients are sent to the area in need. The resulting inflammation can sometimes be felt as occasional pain or soreness. Many people notice this kind of minor discomfort after exercise, like a workout or even a brisk walk. It’s the body’s healthy inflammation response doing its job… but it can be kind of a pain.
However, there's also silent inflammation that can affect every organ of your body. Cells age quietly and it can take years for inflammation to progress in ways you can feel.
