SPM Pro is a combination of three highly potent “specialized pro-resolving mediators” designed to help support the body’s natural ability to respond to physical challenges and “resolve” the initial steps in the body’s natural inflammatory processes. The “resolution” of a healthy inflammatory response is an active process controlled by these unique metabolites.
What are Specialized Pro-Resolving Mediators?
Specialized pro-resolving mediators (SPMs) are a large class of newly discovered molecules produced in the body (bloodstream, nervous tissue, breast milk) and are derived from naturally-occurring omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids found in foods such as fatty fish, nuts, and seeds. SPMs themselves do not block the initial phase in the inflammatory pathway, which is a vital response to initial trauma or injury, but rather aid in the process of “resolving” it (hence their name). In essence, SPMs signal
the immune system, encouraging it to return to a state of balance.
SPMs work to facilitate the body’s natural resolution response to challenges presented in the inflammatory pathway. These challenges can be caused by aging, physical stressors, injury, infection, and nutrient-poor diets.*
Pro-resolving mediators may also support proper pain management, resulting in improvements to overall quality of life.*
SPMs also aid in tissue remodeling and wound healing from occasional trauma/injury, both of which are vital for restoring healthy function in the body.
