New Roads patients|Sufferers with inflammatory conditions like osteoarthritis (OA) may
benefit from some interesting additions to their daily diet.
Blueberries and curcumin each extend anti-inflammatory benefits that
may well help manage their effects.
New Roads Chiropractic Center appreciates these simple, tasty ways
to help combat inflammation by adding these to the rest of the
New Roads chiropractic treatment plan.
CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE
For over 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy
benefits – including its ability to counter human
diseases/conditions like diabetes, cancer, and inflammation - have been known.
A new review of studies highlighted curcumin’s effectiveness in managing neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your New Roads
chiropractor particularly values
curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for dealing with
osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis isn’t an issue 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 common treatment of OA –
NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin offered a protective effect
against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects
in an osteoarthritic rat study. One of
the multiple benefits detailed in
this study was that arthritic conditions as well as serum biomarkers
TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-10, COMP, and CRP decreased after 4 weeks of
use. (3) New Roads Chiropractic Center bets our typical, older OA patient who
has trouble walking will value
Not that curcumin IS NOT tasty, but blueberries
may come to mind as being the tastier of the two! Not
a bad thing! Blueberries, too, have anti-inflammatory positive
attributes. Rich in bioactive substances as well as other healthy properties - anti-oxidant, neuroprotective, anti-obesity,
anti-cancer – blueberries are reported to help treat cancer, reduce
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, specifically TNF, ESR1, AGTR1 and
IGF1. (5) Another study suggested daily blueberry eating may reduce
pain, stiffness, and difficulty performing daily tasks as well as improving
gait may well better quality of life for knee OA sufferers who
find walking troublesome. (6) Blueberries are tasty picks to add to your nutrition plan for those suffering with inflammation.
