Low Grade Systemic Inflammation Can Cause Depression

Posted by Mellisa on January 2, 2013 in Depression, Research, Stress |

inflammedSystemic inflammation in the body can be easily measured by a blood test that checks for C-reactive protein, or CRP. CRP tests are often used to determine the potentiality for heart disease or stroke. And now psychological stress and depression as well!

Recently published in the JAMA of Psychiatry,  after studying 73,131 people, Danish researchers have discovered that “Elevated levels of CRP are associated with increased risk for psychological distress and depression in the general population.”

The researchers also said, ““Irrespective of other factors, we found that basically healthy people with CRP levels above 3 milligrams per liter had a two- to threefold increased risk of depression,” said the lead author, Dr. Borge G. Nordestgaard, a professor of medicine at the University of Copenhagen. “Dampening inflammation may be one way of treating depression.”

The world needs to know there is a better, safer, more effective way to treat chronic inflammation resulting in depression than with modern pharmaceutical drugs. And  nutrient therapy (micronutrients, essential fatty acids, water, etc) can be just one way to help the body reset into a healthier state with less chronic inflammation.

A good place to start would be to try some EmpowerPlus Q96.

Leave me a comment and tell me what you think. And be sure to share this information with your family and friends. Don’t forget “sharing is caring”  😀
