Feeling inflamed? Try B6… Inflammation has been associated with pretty much every chronic disease you can think of, but most notably heart disease. Mainstream medicine has been slow to adopt the concept of hsCRP as a marker of inflammation and a risk for heart disease, despite quite a few years and quite a few studies.
Part of this may be because there has been no drug that has been shown to effectively lower hsCRP levels. As the relationship between high cholesterol and heart disease has been decimated, there have been some desperate attempts to find a better use for the multi billion dollar statin class of drugs.
However, the studies show that it’s pretty weak at lowering hsCRP. But who needs a drug when B6 can do it along w/ fish oils, exercise and stress management?
