Current research has focused on the impact of pro-inflammatory cytokines on inflammation levels & chronic health conditions. During an infection, the body naturally produces pro-inflammatory cytokines as part of its defense mechanism. The healthy body balances pro-inflammatory cytokines with anti-inflammatory cytokines. However, if these pro-inflammatory cytokines (i.e. IL-1, IL-6, IL-8, IL-17, IL-23), Tumor Necrosis Factor-alpha (TNF-a), Nuclear Factor kappa Beta (NF-kß) continue in the “on position” and inflammation levels remain high, adverse health may be the result. Acute inflammation occurs almost immediately after trauma — from a cut or break, to a heart attack. Chronic inflammation is an ongoing process, breaking down or destroying tissue as it is repaired over and over.
CytoQuel™ has been developed to promote healthy cytokine activity. Based on the latest published research, CytoQuel™ offers you and your patients an effective new tool in the quest for healthy inflammation levels.

Testing for Inflammation
Generalized inflammation testing is available for doctors and their patients. The most commonly mentioned test is C-reactive protein (CRP). Elevated CRP-levels can be measured in blood in response to inflammation. Initially used solely as a marker for potential cardiovascular risk, it is now a marker to measure ongoing inflammation in the body. The CDC and American Heart Association consider low inflammation if the CRP is less than 1.0 mg/L, with high risk being above 3.0 mg/L. Many doctors use the CRP or the highly sensitive CRP (hs-CRP) test as an indicator of inflammation. If patients are elevated, doctors often times council patients on lifestyle changes (i.e. diet, exercise). They may also turn to pharmaceutical and/or nutraceuticals to promote a healthy change.
