Inflammation is an important part of our survival mechanism. It helps the human body fight off infections and make repairs to tissue. Sometimes, however, inflammation can become dangerous.
Chronic inflammation, if left unchecked, can target the body’s healthy tissue and organs and lead to more health problems. So how can we target chronic inflammation and allow the body to recover?
Systemic Formulas has developed a dietary supplement that allows the body to naturally resolve the inflammation process.
This article will explain the background on chronic inflammation and how Dr. Shayne Morris’ research into the body’s normal inflammation processes resulted in two promising discoveries.
What Is Chronic Inflammation?
Inflammation is a natural response from your body’s immune system toward an injury or infection. However, sometimes inflammation occurs when it shouldn’t, or simply refuses to evolve into the resolution phase.
This is known as chronic inflammation. If left untreated, it can cause further damage to healthy tissue and organs.
Time Magazine cited chronic inflammation as the “silent killer” in February 2004. More recently, a 2020 study from Harvard Medical School explained that with chronic inflammation, “the immune system prompts white blood cells to attack nearby healthy tissues and organs, setting up a chronic inflammatory process that plays a central role in some of the most challenging diseases of our time.”
Harvard Women’s Health Watch also noted that chronic inflammation can lead to “numerous health problems, including heart disease, arthritis, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, and even cancer.”
Chronic inflammation is a condition where the body’s normal inflammation processes are initiated, sometimes due to injury or infection, but also by toxins, but stay on and do not evolve into the natural resolution phase once the cause of the inflammation is taken care of.
The body’s immune system continues to work overtime, which can cause further damage to the body.
How Do We Help Resolve Chronic Inflammation?
Scientists have identified that certain polyunsaturated (PUFA) molecules called EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are required to provide active metabolites such as resolvins, protectins, and maresins. The body uses these metabolites to determine when the initiating phase of inflammation is fulfilled and when the resolution phase can begin.
The human diet needs pro-resolving molecules to keep up with the demands of the current environment.
According to Harvard, chronic inflammation can be triggered by certain foods such as red meat, refined carbohydrates, and sugary drinks. Instead, Harvard suggests a diet consisting of green vegetables, fruits, nuts, fatty fish, and olive oil to combat the chronic inflammation.
At Systemic Formulas, our research has identified a number of pro-resolving compounds that can help the body to complete its inflammation and resolution processes.
EPA, a polyunsaturated Ω3 fatty acid, provides the body with pro-resolving mediators including 18-HEPE. This primes the metabolic pathways for the E-Series resolvins that serve resolution of the normal inflammation process.
EPA is a necessary part of the normal inflammation process, especially the resolution phase. It inhibits delta-5 saturase enzymes that produce pro-inflammatory eicosanoids such as prostaglandins, thromboxanes, and leukotrienes. It also supports brain cells and other normal membrane functions.
DHA, meanwhile, supplies the body with pro-resolving mediators including 17-hydroxy docosahexaenoic acid. This primes the metabolic pathways for resolvin D1, protectin D1, and maresin 1 to assist in resolving the inflammation process.
DHA is also vital for the eye’s retinas, brain development, and is beneficial for cardiovascular function. DHA helps maintain the cell’s lipid bi-layer fluidity and supports cell signaling. It also prevents low density lipid particles from entering the muscle cells that line the arteries.
White willow bark, or salicin, is an organic compound responsible for acetyl salicylic acid, the metabolically active molecule associated with the white willow’s Aspirin-like impact. Unlike Aspirin, white willow bark does not cause stomach bleeding. This herbal compound has been used for more than 3000 years and supports the body’s normal pain-relieving potentials.
These three pro-resolving compounds are essential for helping the body complete its natural inflammatory process.
Systemic Formulas has used this research to create a new dietary supplement that helps the body heal and repair itself naturally.
A Groundbreaking Dietary Supplement To Help Resolve Chronic Inflammation
Systemic Formulas has developed a breakthrough dietary supplement that assists in naturally resolving the inflammation process. RPM Omega contains Krill oil DHA, 17-HDHA, and 18-HEPE, which are converted into resolvins, protectins, and maresins as our body resolves the normal inflammation process.
Our unique formula also contains the pro-resolving compounds EPA, DPA, 12-HEPE, 5-HEPE, and 8-HEPE.
Why is the krill oil used in RPM Omega important? Krill are small, shrimp-like planktonic crustaceans that thrive on algae and zooplankton in the Antarctic Sea. During Dr. Shayne Morris’ research, he discovered krill oil provides more EPA and DHA Omega 3 fatty acids than fish oil.

In certain individuals, insulin resistance can also lead to inflammation in adipose tissue. Our specially formulated Synulin dietary supplement for glycemic balance may be of interest for patients needing to restore glycation processes.
Synulin uses nature’s most powerful ingredients to balance dysglycemia and insulin resistance. Synulin reinforces the cellular and mitochondrial membrane’s normal sensitivity and helps the body to generate the energy needed for cellular healing.
Untreated forms of dysglycemia such as hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia can damage organs and tissue and cause loss of consciousness or seizures. According to a 2007 study by Lu Qi and Frank Hu with Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, hyperglycemia can lead to an overproduction of oxygen in the mitochondrial membrane, creating a pro-inflammatory cascade.

While inflammation is a natural response from your body’s immune system, sometimes inflammation occurs when it shouldn’t, or refuses to resolve.
Systemic Formulas has developed a dietary supplement to help the body naturally resolve the inflammation process. With pro-resolving compounds EPA, DHA, and salicin from krill oil and white willow bark, our revolutionary product allows the body to complete its natural resolution phase.
