Fort Wayne patients|Sufferers with conditions
related to inflammation like osteoarthritis (OA) may
benefit from some interesting additions to their daily diet.
Blueberries and curcumin each offer anti-inflammatory benefits that
may well assist in the management of their effects.
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic values these simple, tasty ways
to help combat inflammation by adding these to the rest of the
Fort Wayne chiropractic treatment plan.
CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE
For over 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy
benefits – like its ability to lessen human
diseases/conditions like diabetes, cancer, and inflammation - have been documented.
A recent study review focused
on curcumin’s effectiveness in managing neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your Fort Wayne
chiropractor particularly values
curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for dealing with
osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis is
not a condition with a sure cure, but curcumin’s
anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties excel in
their therapeutic value for OA management. Researchers particularly
noted the chondroprotective effects curcumin has.
(2) Compared to the usual treatment of OA –
NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin offered a protective effect
against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects
in a study of osteoarthritis rats. One of
the multiple benefits described in
this study was that arthritic conditions and serum biomarkers
TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-10, COMP, and CRP decreased after 4 weeks of
use. (3) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic knows our typical, older OA patient who
has trouble walking will appreciate
Not that curcumin isn’t tasty, but blueberries
may come to mind as the tastier choice of the two! Good 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 documented to help treat cancer, lower
metabolic syndrome, and protect liver function via their ability to intervene
in nuclear receptor activity. (4) Blueberries work
at the cellular level! They slackened the production of
inflammatory factors, specifically TNF, ESR1, AGTR1 and
IGF1. (5) Another study recommended daily blueberry eating may decrease
pain, stiffness, and difficulty performing daily tasks as well as bettering
gait may well better quality of life for knee OA sufferers who
find walking difficult. (6) Blueberries are tasty choices to add to your nutrition plan for those experiencing the effects of inflammation.
