Life Extension® believes that inflammation is the common denominator of all chronic age-related diseases. Uncontrolled systemic inflammation places you at risk for many degenerative diseases like heart disease and stroke.
In some diseases the body's immune system triggers an inflammatory response when there are no foreign substances (such as bacteria) to fight off. In these diseases, called autoimmune diseases, the body's normally protective immune system causes damage to its own tissues.
Some, but not all types of arthritis, are the result of misdirected inflammation. Arthritis is a general term that describes inflammation in joints.
