Williamson Chiropractic Spinal Care Treatment Plan: Nutritional Tea!

Drink your way to health? When the chosen drink is tea, it’s quite possible! Skeletal pain arising from aging-related conditions responds nicely to muscle and joint boosters like those in green tea. Apple Country Chiropractic offers nutritional advice like drinking green tea to our Williamson 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 new study described how height loss and vertebral fractures in postmenopausal women were linked. The researchers concluded that age rather than the height loss was suggested to be the superior way to determine vertebral fracture risk. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was associated with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a situation documented to reduce quality of life. (2) Cartilage is the victim of these diseases’ inflammatory and degenerative processes. Sarcopenia’s loss of strength and muscle mass 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 reducing inflammatory mediators. (3) Apple Country Chiropractic believes you may enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea comes in many forms. An additional recent article writes that knee osteoarthritis patients benefitted from a mixture of curcuminoids, collagen and green tea extract which were found to inhibit inflammation. The researchers suggested that natural ingredients provide a rational role in the management of osteoarthritis. (4) Another natural option: spearmint tea! A study 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 decreased pain. (5) Rosmarinic acid is extracted from the woody, perennial herb, rosemary. it’s 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) Apple Country Chiropractic is on the hunt for some high-rosA spearmint tea to add to the Williamson chiropractic treatment plan.
