Murfreesboro Chiropractic Tip for Osteoporotic Bone Health: Ginger, FLL and Turmeric

Phytomedicine. It may be a new concept for some. It is the system of using plants to address human disease. It’s been used most of humanity’s existence, but today we are more used to pharmacological medicine. Looking to phytomedicine may benefit us all, particularly post-menopausal women and others who have osteoporosis. Most Chiropractic Clinic reports on some recent findings about such plant-based treatments including ginger along with others like turmeric for Murfreesboro osteoporosis treatment and side benefits of enhanced bone health and bone regeneration.

OSTEOPOROSIS AND POST-MENOPAUSAL WOMEN: BONE FRACTURES, BMD

Women are very aware of osteoporosis. With DEXA scans and concerns for fracture risk in the news, Murfreesboro women are prompted to check the status of their bones. Osteoporosis is best explained as an imbalance between bone formation and bone resorption; both are influenced by nitric oxide. When women get to menopause, estrogen levels drop which makes their risk of fracture increase. In a new study, women were given a nutraceutical containing Paullinia cupana, Muira puama, ginger, and L-citrulline, said to help fractures heal in rat studies. Nitric oxide was boosted along with other biomarkers like cGMP and calcium deposition. Bone mineral density increased as bone resorption was slowed and calcium deposition was improved. (1) Most Chiropractic Clinic finds these to be beneficial outcomes for Murfreesboro osteoporosis care with chiropractic.

GINGER AND TURMERIC FOR OSTEOPOROTIC BONE HEALTH

Murfreesboro chiropractic treatment plans at Most Chiropractic Clinic are based on well-done research studies and experience. Most Chiropractic Clinic appreciates this well-designed prospective triple-blind randomized controlled trial. Now, that’s a study! Its goal is to measure the effect of ginger and turmeric on quality of life, body composition, bone mineral density (BMD) and osteoporosis biomarkers for osteoporotic post-menopausal women. Since ginger and turmeric are relatively inexpensive, this study’s results could surely affect the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.

FLL AND CURCUMIN (TURMERIC) FOR BONE PRESERVATION AND REGENERATION

Fructus Ligustri Lucidi (FLL) is an olive family plant used for its antioxidant and anti-aging properties to treat osteoporosis for more than 1000 years. It has been around a long time! Its bone-preserving properties may stem from the influence FLL has on the microecology of the intestine. Intestinal changes – changes to the gut’s microecology – come with aging, and FLL seems to influence that. As a bonus effect, cognitive function got better. (3) Further, combining curcumin and Fructus Ligustri Lucidi enhanced bone regeneration, positioning it as a promising alternative herbal approach to osteoporosis treatment and prevention. (4)
