For centuries, sea moss (Chondrus Crispus) has been used by people for varying health conditions. However, a persistent use has been for its anti-inflammatory properties. Today, we will discuss how sea moss helps ease inflammation and other health issues that arise from it, like joint pain or arthritis.
The Human Inflammation
Before we jump into how sea moss helps reduce inflammation, let's try to understand what inflammation is and its devastating consequences on human health. Inflammation usually gets triggered in the body when it tries to fight an infection or anything it deems an enemy actively.
The inflammation comes with swelling, pain, heat, change of color, and loss of function in the area where it occurs. Sometimes, it can be in response to a microbe like a virus or bacteria, or sometimes, the body mistakenly thinks its cells are outsiders and attacks them. Inflammation is the cause of many diseases like arthritis, psoriasis, and Crohn’s disease.
Sea Moss and its Anti-inflammatory Properties
Sea Moss is a nutrient-rich food source, containing essential vitamins and minerals like magnesium, iron, zinc, iodine, potassium, vitamin B complex, fucoxanthin, omega-3 fatty acids, fucoidans, etc. These nutrients have been shown to fight inflammation actively. This means that sea moss has the potential to fight off chronic inflammation and pain when taken consistently.
An essential part of the inflammation process is the production of cytokines. The anti-inflammatory action of sea moss can modulate these key inflammatory markers. This is an essential aspect of moderating the protective response in the human body.
Sea moss can positively impact joint health by lessening the effects of inflammation in joints that are part and parcel of arthritis. The reduction of inflammation can, in turn, reduce pain and promote joint wellness.
The antioxidant action of critical chemicals in sea moss also plays a part in the modulation of inflammation in the body. The antioxidant action works by neutralizing free radicals that catalyze body inflammation. Reducing oxidative stress can contribute to a balanced inflammatory response from the body when needed.
