Auburn patients|Sufferers with inflammatory conditions like osteoarthritis (OA) may
benefit from tasty additions to their daily diet.
Blueberries and curcumin each offer anti-inflammatory benefits that
may well help manage their effects.
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. values these simple, tasty options
to help combat inflammation by adding these to the rest of the
Auburn chiropractic treatment plan.
CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE
For over 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 Auburn
chiropractor particularly values
curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for managing
osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis is
not an issue with a clear cure, but curcumin’s
anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties shine in
their therapeutic value for OA management. Researchers specifically
described the chondroprotective effects curcumin has.
(2) Compared to the usual treatment of OA –
NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin had a protective effect
against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
in a study of osteoarthritis rats. One of
the many benefits explained in
this study was that arthritic conditions and serum biomarkers
TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-10, COMP, and CRP reduced after 4 weeks of
use. (3) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. knows our typical, older OA patient who
has trouble 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! Good thing! Blueberries, too, have anti-inflammatory benefits. Rich in bioactive substances in addition to
having 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 work
at the cellular level! They slowed the production of
inflammatory factors, specifically 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 difficult. (6) Blueberries are tasty choices to add to your nutrition plan for those suffering with inflammation.
