Inflammation occurs naturally and can be beneficial in limited periods, like when your body is fighting off an infection. But too much is bad for your health. Prolonged inflammation, caused from poor diet and stress, can cause chronic inflammation, autoimmune conditions, painful joints including rheumatoid arthritis, higher risk of cancer, and may contribute to heart disease. The list could go on, but the bottom line is that you need to control your inflammation. Blue spirulina has been shown to protect against inflammatory disease and arthritis, according to the National Institute of Health(NIH). Their studies showed that the blue-green algae helped reversed inflammatory effects within days.
