Inflammation may be one of the biggest issues we see in this epidemic of chronic health issues, only matched by blood sugar issues. From aching joints to severe skin conditions, headaches to heart disease, inflammation is a huge player in so many issues. That’s why we have put together the ultimate, science-backed, anti-inflammatory kit!
RP (C REACTIVE PROTEIN), homocysteine and cholesterol can be good indications for inflammation. Getting your vitamin D checked can also be very good, as often it’s low, especially in those dealing with chronic inflammation. We highly recommend the following products for those who are suffering from chronic inflammatory issues; Berberine HCl, Biomega 1000, CurcumRx and Bio-D Mulsion Forte.
BERBERINE may be one of the single most beneficial nutrients for our tribe here at Destination Health. It has been scientifically shown to help balance blood sugar, boost immune function, reduce inflammation, improve gut health, lower blood pressure, fight against Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD), improve heart health and more! In some studies, it’s been used in comparison to Metformin for diabetes management with BETTER results and none of the possible side effects.
BIOMEGA 1000 is our highly prized fish oil. Biotics Research has put in a lot of effort to bring the highest possible quality fish oil to the market here in the United States. They have been approved by many of the highest certifying agencies for fish oils, to insure not only its sourcing, but the safety and high quality of the very sensitive omega 3 fats. Omega 3 fats are something nearly every person is deficient in and could benefit from. It is the main anti-inflammatory fat in our body, improves lipid levels (cholesterol), protects the brain and improves memory, helps to balance blood sugar and improve liver function.
CURCUMIN is the star ingredient in CurcumRx. Curcumin has been long used for loads of benefits such as lowering joint pain, lessening irritable bowel symptoms, improving brain function, heart health, fighting diabetes and even reducing cancer risk. As you may have noticed, these compounds are beginning to form a nice relationship of their benefits and why we have put them together into this one protocol and kit, bringing you the ultimate package for fighting inflammatory issues.
BIO D MULSION/BIO-D MULSION FORTE is our vitamin D supplement. This easy to use nutrient may be one of the most important compounds in our body. Some researchers even believe that it’s more of a hormone than a vitamin due to how it interacts in the body and how important its proper status is. Biotics Research has emulsified this nutrient in order to drastically improve the body’s ability to properly digest and absorb it, making this a much more efficient supplement. Vitamin D, often referred to as the sunshine vitamin, because our body is able to produce it from safe sun exposure, helps support heart health, immune function, lower inflammation, reduce risk of cancer and auto-immune disease, support hormone health and on and on!
Bio-DK Mulsion is a combination of emulsified vitamin D3, K1 and K2. This is the preferred supplemental form of taking vitamin D as it helps to improve the efficacy of the vitamin D, but the vitamin K spectrum has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory benefits outside of its effect on the improved vitamin D efficacy. This combination is the best option for those not taking Blood Thinning medications.
*If you are taking a blood thinner, please speak with your prescribing physician before purchasing or starting any supplement with vitamin K as it can counteract the affect of the blood thinner and lead to potentially severe complications.

Be sure to get not only enough sleep, but good quality sleep. Sleep is essential to allow our body to reset and take care of a lot of its rebuilding in order to repair the damaged inflamed areas of the body. Light steady movement, such as brisk walks, stretching, yoga and other light activities can be very beneficial in increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation in the body.
Stress can be another big part of inflammation! When we are constantly stressed out, our bodies get stuck in what’s called the “fight or flight” mode and this can become highly inflammatory over time. Work on lowering your stress load and practicing things such as deep breathing, gratitude journaling, going for walks or things such as prayer and meditation.
