Inflammation is a complex process. It can involve various cellular mechanisms and often accompanies and aggravates many other conditions.

Biological signals involved in inflammation can be naturally controlled by a combination of vitamins, amino acids and selected bioflavonoids, which are all found in the plant extracts used in Arborvitae’s Health and Wellbeing Supplement.

Inflammation is the body’s immune response to a tissue injury or an invasion by foreign agents, such as microorganisms. It is a temporary mechanism and inflammation can turn into pathology if it becomes excessive and chronic.

Inflammation involves a variety of locally produced molecules that are often referred to as “Inflammation markers” in blood tests . These include substances which are present in our blood plasma such as the enzyme plasmin and other components involved in blood coagulation and histamine release.

Inflammation can occur suddenly as an acute reaction, such as a response to injury. The symptoms are heat, redness, swelling, and pain in the affected area. Inflammation can also persist for a long time, and can become a chronic process.
