Auburn Chiropractic Spinal Care Treatment Plan: Nutritional Tea!

Drink your way to health? When the chosen drink is tea, it’s quite possible! Skeletal pain arising from aging-related conditions responds well to muscle and joint boosters like those in green tea. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. offers nutritional advice like drinking green tea to our Auburn chiropractic patients.

AGING-RELATED SKELETAL, CARTILAGE, AND JOINT DISEASES

With aging come skeletal risks like disc height loss and changes like the two joint and muscle diseases called osteoarthritis and sarcopenia. A recent study looked at the interaction of height loss and vertebral fractures in postmenopausal women. The researchers concluded that age rather than the height loss was suggested to be the better way to determine vertebral fracture risk. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was associated with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a condition documented to reduce quality of life. (2) Cartilage is the sufferer of these diseases’ inflammatory and degenerative processes. Sarcopenia’s loss of strength and muscle mass requires attention to quantity and quality of skeletal muscle mass which is where where green tea comes into play. Green tea has catechins that foster healthy joints and skeletal muscle by decreasing inflammatory mediators. (3) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. believes you may enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea is available in many types. Another new article writes that knee osteoarthritis patients were helped by a mixture of curcuminoids, collagen and green tea extract which were shown to inhibit inflammation. The researchers wrote that natural ingredients provide a rational role in the management of osteoarthritis. (4) Another natural option: spearmint tea! A report of how spearmint teas influenced knee osteoarthritis found 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 written 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) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is on the hunt for some high-rosA spearmint tea to add to the Auburn chiropractic treatment plan.
