A new systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials has found reduced levels of inflammatory markers in diabetic patients supplemented with vitamin D.
Inflammation is a natural response of the body to injuries such as sunburn, skin cuts and abrasions, a twisted ankle, or health problems such as infections. It results in symptoms of redness, swelling, pain, and a feeling of heat. While short-term inflammation is a necessary part of the healing process, long-lasting chronic inflammation has detrimental effects on the body and is associated with a wide range of diseases such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, asthma, and autoimmune problems.
Conventional medicine aims only at the management of inflammatory symptoms, which it targets through the use of steroids or via painkillers such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). However, these drugs do not eliminate the cause of the problem. Moreover, they are also associated with severe and sometimes life-threatening side effects, including gastrointestinal bleeding and fatal heart attacks.
In contrast to the dangers of drugs, research carried out at the Dr. Rath Research Institute under the direction of Dr. Aleksandra Niedzwiecki has shown that specific combinations of micronutrients can control inflammation safely and effectively.
