You may think that only your joints are affected by inflammation, but inflammation actually affects all of your major organ systems and therefore affects everyone. Because inflammation management is linked to whole-body health, a supplement that promotes a healthy inflammation response may be fundamental to your entire wellbeing.
Extensive research conducted within the last two decades has indicated that phytochemicals present in herbs and spices can safely and effectively promote a healthy inflammation response.*Defense contains a concentrated blend of 6 time-honored herbs–including ginger, bromelian, turmeric, boswellia, quercetin&rutin–which have been part of the human diet for thousands of years.

The Science of Natural Defense
In several studies these boswellic acids have been found to have anti-inflammatory activity. It acts to modulate the pro-inflammatory enzyme 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX). 5-LOX is the first enzyme released in the cytokine metabolic pathway.
Bromelain is a group of enzymes extracted from the stem and fruit of the pineapple. The mechanism by which it works seems to be related to its constituents’ ability to inhibit platelet aggregation and it may be able to alter leukocyte response and activation.
Curcumin (Turmeric) Extract
Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant that appears to stimulate the body to naturally produce more histamine-lowering cortisone. Research shows curcumin acts as a scavenger of nitric oxide and inhibits OCX-2, a pro-inflammatory substance.
Studies suggest that Ginger inhibits the synthesis of pro-inflammatory prostaglandins, by inhibiting both the cyclo-oxygenase and 5-lipoxygenase enzymes. It also has antioxidant properties and contains protease enzymes, which may add to its anti-inflammatory properties.
Quercetin & Rutin
Quercetin and rutin are closely related antioxidants that naturally occur in many plants. Preliminary research indicates that quercetin may be effective in reducing inflammation by inhibiting inflammatory agents such as histamine, leukotrienes and prostaglandins, and it may slow COX-2 production.
What is Inflammation & Now Does it Affect Health?
Inflammation is the activation of the immune system in response to infection, irritation or injury. Characterized by an influx of white blood cells, redness, heat, swelling, pain, and dysfunction of the organs involved, inflammation has different names when it appears in different parts of the body. Most allergy and asthma sufferers are familiar with rhinitis (inflammation of the nose), sinusitis (inflammation of the sinuses), and asthma (inflammation of the airways), but inflammation is also behind arthritis (inflammation of the joints), dermatitis (inflammation of the skin), and so on.
