Inflamm-aging


Inflammaging is defined as an age-related increase in the level of inflammatory markers in the body’s blood and tissues. It is a strong risk factor for multiple diseases that are highly prevalent in the aging process.


It is chronic low-grade inflammation that occurs as we age.


Inflammation is a normal part of the body's immune response, and it helps to protect us from infection and injury. However, as we age, the immune system becomes less efficient, and inflammation can become chronic and harmful. This chronic inflammation can contribute to the development of age-related diseases such as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and Alzheimer's disease.

Inflammaging is when inflammation has gotten out of control contributes to age-related changes such as decreased muscle mass and strength, impaired cognitive function, and reduced mobility. It can also make it more difficult for the body to repair itself and maintain optimal function.

Signs of inflammaging include disability, fragility, age spots, psoriasis, and rosacea are some, of the signs, and inflammaging is also a risk factor for chronic kidney disease, diabetes, cancer, depression, dementia, and muscle loss.

Reducing inflammaging is an important aspect of healthy aging. This can be done through lifestyle changes such as eating a healthy diet, getting regular movement into your day, managing stress, and avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. Certain anti-inflammatory foods and supplements, such as omega-3 fatty acids, curcumin, and resveratrol, may also be helpful in reducing inflammation and preventing inflammaging.
