The Science

Inflammation is the body’s natural defence mechanism to foreign substances like pathogens, irritants, or physical injury.

However, when inflammation lingers for a long time (from several months to years), it leaves your body in a constant state of alert. This is called chronic inflammation, and is linked to a number of health conditions, including diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and mental illness. Research by myota scientists and others have shown a link between intake of dietary fibres and anti-inflammatory effects in the body.
