C-reactive Proteins Test Can Be a Great Preventative Test for Inflammation in The Body

Leave a comment


C-reactive proteins (CRP)

CRP is produced by the liver in acute-phase response to inflammation during infection or tissue damage in the body. 6

Acute-phase stimulus can increase CRP levels 10,000 times, making them a good indicator for inflammation. 6

Atherosclerosis and the evolution of plaque cause coronary events and are inflammatory processes. Evidence shows that elevated CRP levels can predict future danger like stroke, and peripheral arterial disease. 6

What does this mean for me?

It means that if you have high CRP levels, it could indicate that you have inflammation in your body which can be dangerous for your health. 6

What can I do?

Follow your doctors’ orders and implement lifestyle changes, incorporating exercise into each day can lower your risk for atherosclerosis and stroke.

Prevention and Treatment with Exercise

Adipose tissue is a potential source of CRP.5 Exercise has been shown to reduce CRP levels after a 20-week period of cardiovascular exercise,  3-5 days a week at a moderate intensity for 30-50 minutes per session.4

By decreasing vascular resistance caused by the sympathetic nervous systems, aerobic endurance training decreases blood pressure, and subsequently positively affects cardiovascular risk factors. 3

Dynamic aerobic endurance training decreased blood pressure in a recent study. This involves large muscle groups designed specifically to increase aerobic endurance.3

The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends 30 minutes of exercise, for example, a moderate intensity walk everyday.1

The AHA also suggests resistance training two days per week.1 As moderate resistance training is also able to reduce blood pressure.3
