A Tasty Way to Enhance New Roads Bone Health Cherries!

Aging bones. We cannot evade signs of aging, and our bones tell our age. As we age, we lose bone density. Some of us develop osteoarthritis of bone. We all would enjoy not having to deal with aging and bone loss and osteoarthritis, but truth be told: many of us won’t. New research about how tart cherries may help prevent bone loss and osteoarthritis and improve bone health is refreshing news to New Roads Chiropractic Center. They may be a tasty way for our New Roads chiropractic patients to eat their way to healthier bones!

BONE LOSS AND OSTEOARTHRITIS

Osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease, often leads to disability. There is no cure nor effective treatment yet found to halt it explains one set of researchers. NSAIDs and analgesics help with pain relief but not with the course of osteoarthritis. Taking drugs sometimes results in some adverse side effects for some patients over time which guided a group of researchers to check into what else may help. In their review of peer-reviewed articles, they wrote that nutrition can improve osteoarthritis symptoms. New Roads Chiropractic Center has seen this often in its New Roads chiropractic practice! As these researchers found, glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate “robustly” delay the progression of knee osteoarthritis. While diet changes to correct lipid and cholesterol numbers, enhance vitamin levels and address overweight levels are useful in osteoarthritis care, including these two nutrients is, too.  (1) New Roads Chiropractic Center has more information on them both. 

CONSUMING TART CHERRIES

A likely tasty way to supplement the diet for spine care is consuming tart cherries. In this springtime in the US that finds blooming cherry trees everywhere, it’s the perfect time for this new information about the benefits of cherries. But how much of a good thing like tart cherries is healthy and beneficial? Recently, researchers wrote that tart cherry may be a natural alternative to drug therapy to stop bone loss in diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and others. They report that tart cherry shielded bone structure from inflammation-induced bone loss and (unlike infliximab, a common drug) moderately improved the decline in bone stiffness. (2) That’s advantageous! The researchers suggested that tart cherry may help avoid future fragility fractures in the presence of highly chronic inflammation. (2) Further, another set of researchers describe how the immune and endocrine systems play a role in age-related bone loss. Anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and prebiotic foods like tart cherries can possibly counter this occurrence. In assessing 5% and 10% Montmorency tart cherry intake, researchers found significantly greater bone thickness in patients receiving the cherry than the control group patients. They determined that cherry supplementation (5% and 10%) improved bone mineral density down to the trabecular and cortical bone microarchitecture! (3) All from cherries! New Roads Chiropractic Center sees this as a simple way to help and protect bone and is sure our New Roads chiropractic patients will, too!
