Inflammation is your body’s way of protecting itself from infection, illness, or injury. Your body increases its production of white blood cells, immune cells, and substances called cytokines that help fight infection.

What Are The Symptoms?

Acute (short-term) inflammation include redness, pain, heat, and swelling. Chronic (long-term) inflammation often occurs inside your body without any noticeable symptoms. This type of inflammation can drive illnesses like diabetes, heart disease, fatty liver disease, and cancer.
