Williamson patients|Sufferers with inflammatory conditions like osteoarthritis (OA) may
benefit from some interesting additions to their daily diet.
Blueberries and curcumin each offer anti-inflammatory benefits that
may well assist in the management of their effects.
Apple Country Chiropractic appreciates these easy, tasty options
to help combat inflammation by adding these to the rest of the
Williamson chiropractic treatment plan.
CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE
For more than 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy
benefits – including its ability to lessen human
diseases/conditions like diabetes, cancer, and inflammation - have been understood.
A recent study review focused
on curcumin’s effectiveness in treating neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your Williamson
chiropractor specifically appreciates
curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for managing
osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis is
not an issue with a sure cure, but curcumin’s
anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties excel in
their therapeutic value for OA management. Researchers particularly
noted the chondroprotective effects curcumin has.
(2) Up against 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 multiple benefits explained in
this study was that arthritic conditions as well as serum biomarkers
TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-10, COMP, and CRP reduced after 4 weeks of
use. (3) Apple Country Chiropractic bets our typical, older OA patient who
has trouble walking will appreciate
Not that curcumin isn’t 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 as well as other 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 mediate nuclear receptor activity. (4) Blueberries function
at the cellular level! They slowed the production of
inflammatory factors, specifically TNF, ESR1, AGTR1 and
IGF1. (5) Another study suggested daily blueberry eating may reduce
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 difficult. (6) Blueberries are tasty choices to add to your nutrition plan for those suffering with inflammation.
