Inflammation can occur in nearly anyone at any time and many people prefer using a natural anti-inflammatory to treat the problem. Fortunately, there are many options for finding a natural substance for treatment, both online and at your local health products store.

The best place to start, however, is by listening to the cues from your own body. Keep a diary of when inflammation occurs, along with the foods which were eaten that day, any vitamins, prescription drugs, or supplements you took, and the time of day. Over a period of a couple weeks to two months, you should start to see a pattern. This will help you determine exactly what is causing periodic inflammation; if you are experiencing chronic inflammation you should always seek the care of a physician.

It can take some time to properly treat an intermittent problem and may also require a regimen consisting of more than one treatment. For an immediate option, natural anti-inflammatory supplements can be a real boon to helping you feel your best quickly. There are a variety of supplements available.

Using a daily multi-vitamin and mineral supplement which contains B vitamins, including folic acid, and vitamins C, D, and E, does not have a proven effect on inflammation, however it does increase the level of nutrients in the blood which is always a good place to start. Other conditions may accompany inflammation, such as cardiovascular disease or arthritis, and taking a multivitamin seems to help ease these, as well. Vitamin supplements also increase levels of antioxidants to augment the nutrients in the sufferer's diet and reverse some of the damaging effects of inflammation.

Bioflavonoids, which are sometimes to referred to as flavonoids or flavones, is the term used for more than 5,000 chemicals found naturally occurring in plants. The human body metabolises bioflavonoids in a manner which allows them to have an antioxidant effect, along with being useful against cancer, allergies, and inflammation. While many of these substances occur naturally in food, they can also be taken as supplements; for the best anti-inflammatory effects, ensure the supplement contains rutin, quercetin, and procyanidins, which may be listed on the label as pine bark and grape seed extracts.

There are also several herbs which can aid in fighting inflammation. Boswellia, which is also called Indian frankincense, works as cytokines to fight off inflammation. Ginger is another herb which is not only a natural anti-inflammatory, but also works as an analgesic and moderates nausea and sugar in the body. Turmeric has long been part of the Indian Ayurvedic's arsenal of products to fight inflammation. It inhibits inflammation of the joints by stemming the body's production of prostaglandins and signals cells to activate anti-inflammatory genes. Glucosamine-chondroitin is last, but not least, in the list of herbs which help build healthy cartilage and repair damaged tissues along with delaying joint inflammation from progressing.

All of the natural anti-inflammatory supplements listed here can be easily found in a number of places. Online stores tend to offer the best deals, with huge discounts on large quantities. Look for supplements which offer the greatest concentration of the herbs and vitamins seen above.
