WHY MANAGE INFLAMMATION?

Chronic inflammation is when your immune system is in overdrive.  Managing it can keep you functioning optimally.

 

FEEL GOOD

Chronic inflammation uses up energy on the immune system, leaving less for other functions, causing fatigue and sadness

HELP PREVENT DISEASE

Chronic inflammation is when your immune system is in overdrive and can start damaging your healthy cells and lead to many diseases, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes and Alzheimer's

HELP REDUCE SYMPTOMS

Chronic inflammation may cause symptoms of multiple conditions like IBS, migraine and pain (fibromyalgia and myofascial pain)

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS*

WHAT IS INFLAMMATION?

There are two types of inflammation – acute and chronic inflammation.  Acute (short-term) inflammation is beneficial. Acute inflammation can be caused by infections as well as cell damage.  During acute inflammation, the immune system ramps up, removes pathogens/heals tissue then ramps back down. In chronic inflammation, something other than acute infections (like physical inactivity, obesity, and/or disturbed sleep) may be driving inflammation and the process doesn't ramp down so the immune system is constantly active.  This constant activation may lead to the immune system attacking healthy cells, draining energy, and losing normal functionality.

Chronic inflammation can disrupt homeostasis, which is when the body is in balance and functioning optimally.

WHAT INFLAMMATION MARKER IS BEING MEASURED?

The Be Golden platform is based on measuring high sensitivity C Reactive Protein (hsCRP), an established marker of systemic inflammation.

HOW DOES TESTING WORK?

You will receive an at home testing kit for finger-prick based blood testing.  Follow the instructions and mail the kit back to the lab, using the pre-paid shipping label provided.

HOW FREQUENTLY SHOULD I TEST?

The frequency of measurement is up to you. The more you test, the more detailed your data and insights are.  Based on the data from clinical studies, some interventions can change inflammation levels (as measured by hsCRP) within weeks and others show within months. As such, we recommend testing every 1-2 months to likely provide adequate time for change to your levels.  Each person’s needs and time to impact will vary, so adjust this frequency up or down, depending on what works best for you.  See our blog to see how our CEO’s levels have changed over time. 

ARE THERE ANY TIMES I SHOULD AVOID TESTING?

Experts recommend avoiding testing when you might be experiencing an acute (short term) elevation in hsCRP.  Some instances that cause short term elevation include bacterial or viral infections and strenuous exercise (like running a marathon).  These cause short term elevations in hsCRP because acute inflammation (short term spikes in inflammation) can help the body clear pathogens and heal tissues.

WHAT TARGET HSCRP LEVELS SHOULD I AIM FOR?

Lower levels of hsCRP are better.  Higher levels of hsCRP are known to be associated with increased IBS incidence, IBS symptom severity, migraine incidence,  pain severity, and chronic disease incidence. In fact, even at levels >0.5mg/L, there is a greater incidence of heart disease, so even though a lab may report a level <3mg/L as normal, it is not optimal.   

  

Keeping levels low can also help you feel more energy because chronic inflammation can drain energy and cause fatigue.   

HOW CAN I LOWER MY INFLAMMATION LEVELS?

Lifestyle changes including those related to nutrition, exercise, stress, and sleep can all improve inflammation levels.  See our blog for a list of lifestyle interventions associated with decreased inflammation levels.  Each person will respond differently so we suggest testing what works best for you.
