may well assist in the management of their effects.
Spinal Care Clinic values these easy, tasty ways
to help combat inflammation in addition to the rest of the
Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic treatment plan.
CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE
For more than 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy
benefits – like its ability to counter human
diseases/conditions like diabetes, cancer, and inflammation - have been documented.
A recent review of studies highlighted curcumin’s effectiveness in managing neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your Burlington and Hamilton
chiropractor particularly appreciates
curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for managing
osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis isn’t an issue with a clear 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 offers.
(2) Up against the usual treatment of OA –
NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin had a protective effect
against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects
in a study of osteoarthritis rats. One of
the several benefits explained 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) Spinal Care Clinic 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 the tastier choice of the two! Good thing! Blueberries, too, have 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, lower
metabolic syndrome, and protect liver function via their ability to intervene
in nuclear receptor activity. (4) Blueberries work
at the cellular level! They slowed the production of
inflammatory factors, particularly TNF, ESR1, AGTR1 and
IGF1. (5) Another study recommended daily blueberry eating may reduce
pain, stiffness, and difficulty performing daily tasks as well as bettering
gait may well improve 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.
