Top Anti-Inflammatory Supplements for Chronic Pain 

Inflammation is not always a bad thing – inflammation protects you when you have an injury, such as a wound from a sharp object. It helps your body fight infection and clears away the affected tissue. However, inflammation can become chronic, if it develops in the internal organs of the body and becomes uncontrollable.

Once inflammation is developed, it can last for many years. It targets specific areas of the body, such as the skin, bladder, gums, sinuses or prostrate. It can even become a body-wide condition.

When the inflammation becomes really bad, it leads to type 2 diabetes, heart disease, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, Fibromyalgia  and neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. It can cause chronic pain such as headache, migraine, etc.

That’s why it is so important to keep inflammation under control. Otherwise it can lead to full blown and unbearable chronic pain.

The top anti-inflammatory supplements help you do that. A diet consisting of fruits and vegetables, nuts, olive oil, fish and whole grains can fight inflammation. But that’s not going to be enough to reverse the condition. You need more help.

Here are the top-inflammatory supplements for chronic pain that you should know about.

In India, people boil the leaves of Mimosa pudica. The warm liquid is used as compress, to provide instant pain relief to aching or sore muscles.
