    Inflammation and getting sick


    I was just reading the writeup about SIRplus and it talks about how inflammation and getting sick are linked. I have been trying everything (supplements, careful not to overtrain) to combat the cold/flu but still manage to pick it up. I don't if it's because I have two kids under 3 years old or its just the cold weather, but I can't figure it out.

    The inflammation thing caught my eye because isn't that what you want to do to your muscle's, isn't that what X-factor is supposed to do? Any info on getting sick would be appreciated.

    Setting aside the Sirplus write-up: Inflamation is indicated as a key component in a number of diseases. Oddly enough, inflamation even appears to be a key component in some cancers. However, these are long-term diseases not the type of illnesses that are the result of viral/bacterial infection. Reducing inflamatory responses is tremendously valuable to your health, but it's not going to stop you from getting the flu.
