Fort Wayne Chiropractic Tip for Osteoporotic Bone Health: Ginger, FLL and Turmeric

Phytomedicine. A new concept? Not really. It is the system of using plants to help human disease. It’s been around most of humanity’s existence, but today we’re more accustomed to pharmacological medicine. Looking to phytomedicine may benefit many of us, especially post-menopausal women and others who suffer with osteoporosis. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic reports on some recent research about such plant-based therapies including ginger as well as others like turmeric for Fort Wayne osteoporosis treatment and side benefits of improved bone health and bone regeneration.

OSTEOPOROSIS AND POST-MENOPAUSAL WOMEN: BONE FRACTURES, BMD

Women are quite aware of osteoporosis. With DEXA scans and concerns for fracture risk in the news, Fort Wayne women are prompted to check the status of their bones. Osteoporosis is best explained as an imbalance between bone formation and bone resorption; both are regulated by nitric oxide. When women reach menopause, estrogen levels drop which increases their fracture risk. In a recent study, women were given a nutraceutical containing Paullinia cupana, Muira puama, ginger, and L-citrulline, known to enhance fracture healing in rat studies. Nitric oxide was boosted along with other biomarkers like cGMP and calcium deposition. Bone mineral density increased as bone resorption was reduced and calcium deposition was enhanced.

GINGER AND TURMERIC FOR OSTEOPOROTIC BONE HEALTH

Fort Wayne chiropractic treatment plans at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic are based on well-done research studies and experience. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic values this well-designed prospective triple-blind randomized controlled trial. That took a lot to set up, no doubt! Its goal is to gauge the effect of ginger and turmeric on quality of life, body composition, bone mineral density (BMD) and osteoporosis biomarkers in post-menopausal women with osteoporosis. Since ginger and turmeric are pretty inexpensive, this study’s results could really affect the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.

FLL AND CURCUMIN (TURMERIC) FOR BONE PRESERVATION AND REGENERATION

Fructus Ligustri Lucidi (FLL) is an olive family plant used for its antioxidant and anti-aging properties to treat osteoporosis for more than 1000 years. It has been around a long time! Its bone-preserving properties may come from the effect FLL seems to have on the microecology of the intestine. Intestinal changes – changes to the gut’s microecology – come with aging, and FLL appears to influence that. As an extra effect, cognitive function improved. (3) Additionally, using both curcumin and Fructus Ligustri Lucidi enhanced bone regeneration, positioning it as a hopeful alternative herbal way to osteoporosis treatment and prevention. (4)
