may well help manage their effects.
Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office appreciates these simple, tasty options
to help combat inflammation in addition to the rest of the
Groton chiropractic treatment plan.
CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE
For more than 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy
benefits – like its ability to lessen human
diseases/conditions like diabetes, cancer, and inflammation - have been known.
A recent review of studies highlighted curcumin’s effectiveness in managing neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your Groton
chiropractor particularly appreciates
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 shine in
their therapeutic value for OA management. Researchers specifically
described the chondroprotective effects curcumin offers.
(2) Compared to the common treatment of OA –
NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin offered a protective effect
against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects
in a study of osteoarthritis rats. One of
the multiple benefits detailed in
this study was that arthritic conditions and serum biomarkers
TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-10, COMP, and CRP reduced after 4 weeks of
use. (3) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office knows our typical, older OA patient who
has trouble walking will appreciate
Not that curcumin IS NOT tasty, but blueberries
may come to mind as being the tastier of the two! Good thing! Blueberries, too, offer 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, reduce
metabolic syndrome, and protect liver function via their ability to mediate 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 recommended daily blueberry eating may decrease
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 picks to add to your nutrition plan for those experiencing the effects of inflammation.
