San Jose patients|Sufferers with conditions
related to inflammation like osteoarthritis (OA) may
benefit from some interesting additions to their daily diet.
Blueberries and curcumin each extend anti-inflammatory benefits that
may well help manage their effects.
Chiropractic Solutions values these easy, tasty ways
to help combat inflammation by adding these to the rest of the
San Jose chiropractic treatment plan.
CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE
For over 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy
benefits – including its ability to counter human
diseases/conditions like diabetes, cancer, and inflammation - have been understood.
A new study review highlighted curcumin’s effectiveness in managing neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your San Jose
chiropractor particularly appreciates
curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for dealing with
osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis isn’t 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
described the chondroprotective effects curcumin has.
(2) Up against the common treatment of OA –
NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin offered a protective effect
against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant factors
in an osteoarthritic rat study. One of
the many benefits described 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) Chiropractic Solutions bets our typical, older OA patient finds difficulty walking will appreciate
THE ANTI-INFLAMMATORY PROPERTIES OF BLUEBERRIES
Not that curcumin IS NOT tasty, but blueberries
may come to mind as being the tastier of the two! Not
a bad thing! Blueberries, too, offer anti-inflammatory positive
attributes. 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, particularly TNF, ESR1, AGTR1 and
IGF1. (5) Another study recommended daily blueberry eating may reduce
pain, stiffness, and difficulty doing daily tasks as well as improving
gait may well better quality of life for knee OA sufferers who
find walking difficult. (6) Blueberries are tasty picks to add to your nutrition plan for those experiencing the effects of inflammation.
