Fort Wayne Nutrition Approaches for Degenerated Discs: Broccoli, Aloe and Grapeseed Oil

Who knew? Researchers are a fascinating group of people. How they come up things to experiment with is a fascination! What would prompt them to think “grapeseed oil, aloe vera gel, and broccoli may positively impact disc degeneration” is a wonder to Aaron Chiropractic Clinic and surely to our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients, but a good wonder! They may be onto something to deal with discs that are degenerated which cause back pain, neck pain, and disturbance of life.

PREVENTING AND POSSIBLY REVERSING DISC DEGENERATION

Fort Wayne low back pain is very closely associated with degeneration of the intervertebral disc in the spine.  At its basic level, the Fort Wayne degenerated disc is defined by a decreased number of cells as well as change to its tissue and extracellular matrix content. In many studies, rabbit discs are studied as they are similar to human discs. In one rabbit study, researchers looked at the degenerated intervertebral disc and its response to the use of broccoli sprout extract. They thought and their study found that this extract had preventive and restorative influences on degenerated discs. (1) In another rabbit study, grapeseed extracts were put on degenerated discs. By reason of their being natural flavonoids with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, grapeseed extracts were tried to find out how their inhibitory and anabolic effects would be on degenerated discs. They showed to be preventive and restorative in terms of stopping the degradation of disc tissues’ collagen fibrils. (2) In a third study, aloe vera gel was applied to degenerated discs of rabbits. Aloe vera gel stopped and reversed disc degeneration. Researchers wrote that there was a statistically significant (a big deal!) gradual reversal of degenerative changes. These modifications were seen in the collagen content organization, the nucleus pulposus and annulus fibrosus cell increase, and degree of disc degeneration. (3) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic will keep following these interesting studies and see how they will translate into human use. Maybe these results will inspire Fort Wayne chiropractic patients to eat more broccoli, use grapeseed, and find a way to use some aloe vera gel?
