Why is Chronic
Inflammation called the Silent Killer?
Your lifestyle choices matter and
here’s why. According to the World Health
Organization, chronic inflammatory-related diseases
are your greatest health risk.
It is noted as a
Silent Killer because its long term effects are not
felt until they manifest or erupt like a fire.
Scott Conard, M.D. says, “Patients
come to my clinic saying ‘I feel fine, I feel fine,’
and then the cardiac event occurs and even death.”
Understanding Inflammation, a 24-page
document just released by Harvard Medical School
that reveals C-reactive protein, an inflammatory
marker, is now considered a better indicator of your
cardiovascular health than cholesterol.
That is a bold statement we should
all take note of, especially when Americans are
spending billions of dollars on statins annually,
and thousands of doctors are still prescribing them
based on medical science from over 50 years ago.
Harvard Medical School confirms:
Unchecked chronic inflammation plays a central role
in some of the most challenging diseases of our
Causes of Chronic Inflammation
Untreated causes of acute inflammation,
such as an infection or injury
Long-term exposure to irritants like
polluted air, heavy metals, industrial
chemicals and pesticides
Autoimmune disorders such as lupus,
rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and multiple
sclerosis(MS) in which your immune
system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue
experts also believe that certain
lifestyle choices can contribute to
chronic inflammation including smoking,
chronic stress, alcohol use and obesity
most effective way to test for elevated
inflammation is by testing for
C-reactive protein (CRP). The
liver produces CRP and levels are
measured through a simple blood test.
CRP levels will rise in response to

sedimentation rate (ESR),
a type of blood test that measures how
quickly erythrocytes (red blood cells)
settle at the bottom of a test tube that
contains a blood sample. Normally,
red blood cells settle relatively
slowly. A faster-than-normal rate may
indicate inflammation in the body.

The Superfruit of the prickly pear (nopal)
cactus, contains a powerful class of
nutrients called Betalains.
What are Betalains?
Betalains are plant-based compounds that have
antioxidant properties and give the prickly pear
fruit its distinctive bright red color.
The prickly pear cactus of the Sonoran Desert
contains a high concentration of protein-bound
Betalains. This is because the Sonoran Desert is the
most extreme desert in the world and this plant
needs Betalains to survive in the intense

nutrients from the Sonoran Desert—can help you
experience greater wellness.
