TWO TYPES OF INFLAMMATION
Inflammation which occurs for long periods of time throughout the body (systemic) without us realizing it, and can slowly cause tissue damage over time and increase risk of disease.
Chronic inflammation is low grade and systemic, constantly engaged, silently damaging tissues increasing your risk of disease. Symptoms aren’t obvious like they are with acute inflammation and chronic inflammation presents itself in various ways in various people.
Chronic inflammation contributes to everything from achy joints to asthma to irritable bowel disease to diabetes to heart disease to migraines to skin rashes, and the list goes on.
Your body sees inflammation as a priority and will try to take care of it before other issues. This could mean if you’re struggling with lack of energy, difficulty losing weight, or even digestive issues, it’s going to be difficult for your body to fix these without reducing inflammation first.
Chronic Inflammation contributes to many leading causes of death in the United States:
- Heart Disease
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Kidney Disease
- Chronic Lower Respiratory Disease
What May Lead to Chronic Inflammation?
- Over exercise
- Poorly controlled

What Can Lead to Neuroinflammation (also oftentimes Chronic Inflammation)?
- Traumatic brain injuries (Concussions, motor vehicle accidents, injury from violence)
- Autoimmune diseases
- By-products of diseases- circulating endotoxins
- Microglial activation- different components to inflammation are led by microglial cells
- Chronic stress- Chronic stress involves elevated cortisol which can lead to microglial activation via the release of inflammatory cytokines. In other words, stress often causes chronic inflammation which can lead to neuronal injury or death and therefore changes in behavior. It interferes with all stages of neuronal renewal.
- Stress causes people to feel scattered and feeling like they can’t think straight. They often wonder what is happening to them.
How can we quiet that brain cell activation which leads to inflammation?
According to Dr James LaValle, RG3 and Nicotinamide Riboside may help.
Methylcobalamin (RG3-Synapsin®) Spray
Methylcobalamin (RG3-Synapsin®) Spray (RG3 + Nicotinamide Riboside + Methyl B12) is an innovative, patent-pending powder blend of ginsenoside Rg3 and nicotinamide riboside along with ingredients to aid in solubilization and dispersion. It is designed to be used in formulations for the support of neurological health and cognitive support.
Methylcobalamin (RG3-Synapsin®) was invented by renowned author, pharmacist and functional medicine speaker Jim LaValle, RPh, CCN, ND, and is commonly used in combination with methylcobalamin or hydroxocobalamin in formulations to support neuronal function and cognition.
