Millville 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. Wilson Family Chiropractic offers nutritional advice like drinking green tea to our Millville chiropractic patients.

AGING-RELATED SKELETAL, CARTILAGE, AND JOINT DISEASES

Skeletal risks like disc height loss and changes like the two joint and muscle diseases called osteoarthritis and sarcopenia come with aging. A recent study described the interaction of height loss and vertebral fractures in postmenopausal women. The researchers concluded that age rather than the height loss was suggested to be the superior method of determining vertebral fracture risk. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was associated with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a condition known to reduce quality of life. (2) Cartilage is the sufferer of the inflammatory and degenerative aspects of these diseases. The loss of strength and muscle mass that accompanies sarcopenia necessitates attention to quantity and quality of skeletal muscle mass. This is where green tea comes into play. Green tea has catechins that help maintain healthy joints and skeletal muscle by decreasing inflammatory mediators. (3) Wilson Family Chiropractic hopes you might enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea is available in a variety of forms. Another recent 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 have a rational role in the care of osteoarthritis. (4) Another natural option: spearmint tea! A study of how spearmint teas affected knee osteoarthritis found that a commercial spearmint tea bettered 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’s a polyphenolic compound with antioxidant properties. Polyphenols are written 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) Wilson Family Chiropractic is on the hunt for some high-rosA spearmint tea to add to the Millville chiropractic treatment plan.
