Millville 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 assist in the management of their effects.
Wilson Family Chiropractic values these simple, tasty options
to help combat inflammation in addition to the rest of the
Millville chiropractic treatment plan.
CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE
For over 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy
benefits – including its ability to lessen human
diseases/conditions like diabetes, cancer, and inflammation - have been understood.
A new review of studies focused
on curcumin’s effectiveness in treating neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your Millville
chiropractor particularly values
curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for dealing with
osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis is
not a condition with a sure cure, but curcumin’s
anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties shine in
their therapeutic value for OA management. Researchers particularly
noted the chondroprotective effects curcumin offers.
(2) Compared to the usual treatment of OA –
NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin had a protective effect
against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
in an osteoarthritic rat study. One of
the several 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) Wilson Family Chiropractic bets our typical, older OA patient finds difficulty walking will value
Not that curcumin IS NOT tasty, but blueberries
may come to mind as the tastier choice of the two! Not
a bad thing! Blueberries, too, have anti-inflammatory benefits. Rich in bioactive substances in addition to
having 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 slackened the production of
inflammatory factors, particularly TNF, ESR1, AGTR1 and
IGF1. (5) Another study suggested daily blueberry eating may decrease
pain, stiffness, and difficulty doing daily tasks as well as bettering
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 experiencing the effects of inflammation.
