Nutrients Found to Favorably Affect CRP Levels

Chronic inflammation may be triggered by many factors including stress,
smoking, environmental toxins and poor diet. Doctors can track inflammation by
measuring C-reactive protein (CRP) levels within the body. Recent studies
indicate that certain nutrients such as vitamin C, Pycnogenol and the
essential fatty acids found in fish oil may promote favorable CRP levels in
the body, enhancing the body's normal inflammatory response.
