A Tasty Way to Enhance Millville Bone Health Cherries!

Aging bones. None of us can avoid 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 love to escape aging and bone loss and osteoarthritis, but truth be told: many of us will not. New research about how tart cherries may help block bone loss and osteoarthritis and improve bone health is pleasing news to Wilson Family Chiropractic. They may be a tasty way for our Millville chiropractic patients to eat their way to healthier bones!

BONE LOSS AND OSTEOARTHRITIS

Osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease, often precedes disability. There is no cure nor effective treatment yet discovered to halt it explains one set of researchers. NSAIDs and analgesics help with pain relief but not with the course of osteoarthritis. Using drugs brings about some adverse side effects which guided a group of researchers to check into what else may be beneficial. In their review of peer-reviewed articles, they concluded that nutrition can better osteoarthritis symptoms. Wilson Family Chiropractic has seen this often in its Millville chiropractic practice! As these researchers discovered, glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate “robustly” delay the progression of knee osteoarthritis. While diet changes to correct lipid and cholesterol numbers, boost vitamin levels and address overweight issues are valuable in osteoarthritis care, adding these two nutrients is, too.  (1) Wilson Family Chiropractic has more information on them both. 

CONSUMING TART CHERRIES

A likely tasty way to supplement the diet for spine care is eating 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 explain that tart cherry shielded bone structure from inflammation-induced bone loss and (unlike infliximab, a common drug) moderately improved the decrease in bone stiffness. (2) That is advantageous! The researchers advised that tart cherry may be useful to avoid future fragility fractures in the presence of highly chronic inflammation. (2) Further, another set of researchers note 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 potentially neutralize this happening. In trying 5% and 10% Montmorency tart cherry intake, researchers found significantly greater bone thickness in patients using the cherry than the control group patients. They determined that cherry supplementation (5% and 10%) bettered bone mineral density down to the trabecular and cortical bone microarchitecture! (3) All from cherries! Wilson Family Chiropractic appreciates this simple way to improve bone and is sure our Millville chiropractic patients will, too!
