Anti-inflammatory Supplements

Our main focus should always be targeting the underlying causes of inflammation—by healing the gut and re-balancing the microbiome. For even further help in reducing inflammation, there are additional supplements that you can add on as optional extras. These supplements generally work by fine-tuning the immune system.  For further information, see Chapter 8 of The Keystone Approach.
