may well assist in the management of their effects.
Back And Neck Care Center appreciates these easy, tasty ways
to help combat inflammation in addition to the rest of the
Severna Park chiropractic treatment plan.
CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE
For more than 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy
benefits – including its ability to counter human
diseases/conditions like diabetes, cancer, and inflammation - have been documented.
A new review of studies focused
on curcumin’s effectiveness in managing neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your Severna Park
chiropractor specifically appreciates
curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for managing
osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis is
not a condition with a sure cure, but curcumin’s
anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties stand out in
their therapeutic value for OA management. Researchers specifically
described the chondroprotective effects curcumin has.
(2) Up against the common treatment of OA –
NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin offered a protective effect
against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
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) Back And Neck Care Center bets our typical, older OA patient finds difficulty walking will value
Not that curcumin isn’t tasty, but blueberries
may come to mind as being the tastier of the two! Not
a bad thing! Blueberries, too, have anti-inflammatory benefits. Rich in bioactive substances as well as other healthy properties - anti-oxidant, neuroprotective, anti-obesity,
anti-cancer – blueberries are documented to help treat cancer, reduce
metabolic syndrome, and protect liver function via their ability to mediate nuclear receptor activity. (4) Blueberries function
at the cellular level! They slackened the production of
inflammatory factors, specifically TNF, ESR1, AGTR1 and
IGF1. (5) Another study suggested daily blueberry eating may reduce
pain, stiffness, and difficulty doing daily tasks as well as bettering
gait may well better quality of life for knee OA sufferers who
find walking troublesome. (6) Blueberries are tasty picks to add to your nutrition plan for those suffering with inflammation.
