New Roads Chiropractic Spinal Care Treatment Plan: Nutritional Tea!

Drink for health? When the chosen drink is tea, it’s quite possible! Aging-related skeletal pain responds nicely to muscle and joint boosters like those in green tea. New Roads Chiropractic Center offers nutritional tips like drinking green tea to our New Roads chiropractic patients.

AGING-RELATED SKELETAL, CARTILAGE, AND JOINT DISEASES

With aging come skeletal risks like disc height loss and changes like the two joint and muscle diseases called osteoarthritis and sarcopenia. A recent study looked at the interaction of height loss and vertebral fractures in postmenopausal women. The researchers decided that age rather than the height loss was suggested to be the superior method of determining risk of vertebral fracture. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was associated with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a condition known to decrease quality of life. (2) Cartilage is the sufferer of the inflammatory and degenerative aspects of these diseases. Sarcopenia’s loss of strength and muscle mass necessitates attention to quantity and quality of skeletal muscle mass which is where where green tea comes into play. Green tea contains catechins that help maintain healthy joints and skeletal muscle by reducing inflammatory mediators. (3) New Roads Chiropractic Center believes you might enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea comes in many forms. An additional new article reports that knee osteoarthritis patients benefitted from a combination of curcuminoids, collagen and green tea extract which exhibited anti-inflammatory properties. The researchers wrote that natural ingredients provide a rational role in the management of osteoarthritis. (4) Another natural option: spearmint tea! A report of how spearmint teas affected knee osteoarthritis discovered that a commercial spearmint tea improved stiffness and physical disability while a spearmint tea brewed from a high-rosmarinic acid (high-rosA) variety significantly reduced pain. (5) Rosmarinic acid is taken from the woody, perennial herb, rosemary. It is a polyphenolic compound with antioxidant properties. Polyphenols are reported to be anti-cancer, anti-tumor cell proliferation, anti-apoptosis (cell death), anti-metastasis, and anti-inflammatory. Rosmarinic acid is found in plant species like the mint. (6) New Roads Chiropractic Center is on the hunt for some high-rosA spearmint tea to add to the New Roads chiropractic treatment plan.
