Inflamed? You Better Take Your
It is a little known fact that
blood concentrations of several
trace vitamins and minerals decrease
because of the systemic inflammatory
response. This effect was
investigated recently in the
December issue ofAmerican
Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
Between 2001 and 2011, the
results (2217 blood samples from
1303 patients) of routine
micronutrient screens (plasma zinc,
copper, selenium, and vitamins A,
B-6, C, and E) and all vitamin D
results (4327 blood samples from
3677 patients) were examined.
C-reactive protein (CRP)
concentrations were measured as a
marker of the severity of
inflammation and categorized into 6
groups; for each group, plasma
micronutrient concentrations and
percentage changes were calculated.
Except for copper and
vitamin E, all plasma micronutrient
concentrations decreased with
increasing severities of the acute
inflammatory response. For zinc.
selenium, vitamins A, C, D, and B-6,
the magnitude of the decrease was
significant, ranging between 19% and
53%. For selenium and vitamins B-6
and C, this occurred with only
slightly increased C-reactive
those who claim that supplemental
vitamins and minerals are not
crucial, in individuals with chronic
inflammatory conditions, let this
study be a reminder of how important
supplemental nutrients are. As we
have known for years, your body can
severely deplete the amount of
nutrients available to you when
