‘How does stress and inflammation drive disease including neuroinflammation

Jo Gamble will be digging into the homeostatic imbalance caused by chronic stress on the body and how stress drives inflammation and oxidative damage which drives a multitude of diseases from neuroinflammation to metabolic diseases.

This webinar will cover:

  • The mechanisms of stress
  • Homeostasis and how it goes out of balance
  • Stress and inflammation
  • Inflammation and oxidative stress
  • How stress and inflammation drives: neuroinflammation, cardiovascular disease, metabolic diseases and cancers

‘Chronic and Degenerative disease: Countering the effects of Oxidative Stress

‘The available evidence indicates that individuals with chronic degenerative diseases are more susceptible to oxidative stress and damage because they have elevated levels of oxidants and/or reduced antioxidants. Therefore, it has been posited that antioxidant supplementation in such individuals may be beneficial.’[i]

Oxidation is a natural, normal and necessary reaction in the body, aiding, for example, immune protection and infection control. Oxidative stress, on the other hand, occurs when there is an imbalance between free radical activity and antioxidant activity; oxidative stress can cause cell and tissue damage and may play a role in the development of a wide range of disease conditions including cancer, cardiovascular conditions, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome, male infertility, asthma, inflammatory disorders and the ageing process.

‘Free radicals come in many shapes, sizes and chemical configurations’ (according to Harvard.edu). Free radical fighters (antioxidants) also come in a variety of forms and may aid the body in defending the body and repairing DNA to maintain cellular health.

In addition to looking at oxidizing agents (e.g. hydrogen peroxide), reactive oxygen species (ROS) and free radicals, this webinar will look at means to counter the negative effects of these unstable molecules via antioxidants.  We will look at some of the antioxidant categories, particularly at flavonoids (e.g. flavonols, flavanols and anthocyanins), as well as antioxidant vitamins, co-factors, carotenoids and enzymatic antioxidants (e.g. superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase).  We will look particularly at some ‘superfood’ botanicals to utilise alongside dietary antioxidant sources toward better health outcomes and healthy ageing. We will also look briefly at why the rich, natural environment of the Amazonian Rainforest can provide superior, nutrient-dense antioxidant phytochemicals.

Before discussing how and why antioxidant phytochemicals may benefit, we will define the term degenerative disease and touch on why chronic degenerative diseases occur.
