What is Inflammatory Cytokines?

Cytokines are proteins produced by the body in response to infection, inflammation or injury. There are two types of cytokines: pro-inflammatory cytokines and anti-inflammatory cytokines that is released during cell injury, infection, invasion and inflammation. However, if the inflammatory response lasts for a long time, it will bring negative effects by causing inflammatory diseases. Some of these effects are fever, inflammation, shock, and even death in severe cases. They cause the breakdown of tissues due to the decrease in collagen production, as collagen acts as a structural support to cells. Excessive production of pro-inflammatory cytokines have been shown to be associated with inflammatory diseases such as atherosclerosis and cancer. It is also known that ageing skin will shift more towards pro-inflammatory state, which may decrease the skin immunity and increase the risk of skin infection in elderly people.

How It Affects Your Body

Pro-inflammatory cytokines develop persistent pain behaviours at inflammatory sites such as an injured nerve or skin.

Signs and Symptoms: Chronic Inflammation

Signs and Symptoms: Acute Inflammation

Suggested Lifestyle Changes

Dietary Recommendations:

  1. Dietary intake of virgin olive oil, which brings strong anti-inflammatory effects, may reduce the risk of inflammation.
  2. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is an organic sulphur-containing compound which is naturally found in foods like fresh vegetables, meat, and dairy products. It has been found to exhibit an anti-inflammatory effect that promotes the effect of pro-inflammatory cytokines.
