There are several ingredients in a Myers infusion that are very beneficial when it comes to inflammation. Selenium, a trace mineral, can decrease inflammation in the airways and lungs, as seen with asthma and seasonal allergies. Vitamin C, ascorbic acid, is great for slowing the inflammation that comes with arthritis. Glutathione reduces inflammation throughout the body and has the “super power” to recycle itself and other antioxidants. Manganese is an integral part of an antioxidant enzyme called superoxide dismutase (SOD). This enzyme has been shown to reduce inflammation in inflammatory bowel disease and psoriasis.
Zinc is a potent anti-inflammatory that supports the immune system and reduces several markers of inflammation. People with zinc deficiency are more likely to have arthritis, suggesting a link between zinc deficiency, inflammation, and pain. Vitamin B6, Pyridoxine, low levels of vitamin B6 in the blood are directly related to high levels of chronic inflammation and pain.
