Burlington and Hamilton Chiropractic Spinal Care Treatment Plan: Nutritional Tea!

Drink for health? Yes, when the drink is tea! Aging-related skeletal pain responds well to muscle and joint boosters like those in green tea. Spinal Care Clinic offers nutritional tips like drinking green tea to our Burlington and Hamilton 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 new study described how height loss and vertebral fractures in postmenopausal women were linked. The researchers decided that age rather than the height loss was suggested to be the superior way to determine risk of vertebral fracture. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was linked with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a situation known to decrease quality of life. (2) Cartilage is the sufferer of these diseases’ inflammatory and degenerative processes. The loss of strength and muscle mass that accompanies sarcopenia requires 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) Spinal Care Clinic believes you might enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea is available in a variety of types. Another recent article writes that knee osteoarthritis patients benefitted from a combination of curcuminoids, collagen and green tea extract which were shown to inhibit inflammation. The researchers suggested that natural ingredients provide a rational role in the care of osteoarthritis. (4) Another natural option: spearmint tea! A report 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 taken 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) Spinal Care Clinic is on the hunt for some high-rosA spearmint tea to enhance the Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic treatment plan.
