Inflammation is good.
Short-term inflammation is an important part of the healing process. When injuries happen, damaged areas are inflamed and flooded with white blood cells. White blood cells fight infection and heal the body.
Chronic inflammation is bad.
Chronic (long-term) inflammation and stress in muscles, organs, and tissues leads to disease in the body. You can reduce chronic inflammation with small shifts in diet and overall self care. This is an important step in reducing risk of diabetes, cancer and heart failure for any body.
