Murfreesboro patients|Sufferers with conditions
related to inflammation like osteoarthritis (OA) may
benefit from tasty additions to their daily diet.
Blueberries and curcumin each offer anti-inflammatory benefits that
may well help manage their effects.
Most Chiropractic Clinic values these easy, tasty ways
to help combat inflammation in addition to the rest of the
Murfreesboro chiropractic treatment plan.
CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE
For more than 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy
benefits – like its ability to counter human
diseases/conditions like diabetes, cancer, and inflammation - have been known.
A new study review highlighted curcumin’s effectiveness in treating neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your Murfreesboro
chiropractor specifically appreciates
curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for dealing with
osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis isn’t a condition with a sure cure, but curcumin’s
anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties stand out in
their therapeutic value for OA management. Researchers particularly
described the chondroprotective effects curcumin offers.
(2) Up against the usual treatment of OA –
NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin had a protective effect
against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
in an osteoarthritic rat study. One of
the many benefits detailed in
this study was that arthritic conditions as well as serum biomarkers
TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-10, COMP, and CRP reduced after 4 weeks of
use. (3) Most Chiropractic Clinic knows our typical, older OA patient who
has trouble walking will appreciate
THE ANTI-INFLAMMATORY PROPERTIES OF BLUEBERRIES
Not that curcumin IS NOT tasty, but blueberries
may come to mind as the tastier choice of the two! Good thing! Blueberries, too, have anti-inflammatory benefits. Rich in bioactive substances in addition to
having healthy properties - anti-oxidant, neuroprotective, anti-obesity,
anti-cancer – blueberries are documented to help treat cancer, lower
metabolic syndrome, and protect liver function via their ability to intervene
in nuclear receptor activity. (4) Blueberries work
at the cellular level! They slowed the production of
inflammatory factors, particularly TNF, ESR1, AGTR1 and
IGF1. (5) Another study suggested daily blueberry eating may reduce
pain, stiffness, and difficulty doing daily tasks as well as improving
gait may well improve quality of life for knee OA sufferers who
find walking difficult. (6) Blueberries are tasty options to add to your nutrition plan for those suffering with inflammation.
