Largo patients|Sufferers with inflammatory conditions like osteoarthritis (OA) may
benefit from some interesting additions to their daily diet.
Blueberries and curcumin each extend anti-inflammatory benefits that
may well help manage their effects.
Hollstrom & Associates Inc values these easy, tasty options
to help combat inflammation by adding these to the rest of the
Largo chiropractic treatment plan.
CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE
For over 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy
benefits – like its ability to counter human
diseases/conditions like diabetes, cancer, and inflammation - have been understood.
A new study review focused
on curcumin’s effectiveness in treating neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your Largo
chiropractor specifically appreciates
curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for managing
osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis is
not a condition with a clear cure, but curcumin’s
anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties shine in
their therapeutic value for OA management. Researchers particularly
described the chondroprotective effects curcumin offers.
(2) Compared to the common treatment of OA –
NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin had a protective effect
against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects
in a study of osteoarthritis rats. One of
the multiple benefits detailed in
this study was that arthritic conditions as well as serum biomarkers
TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-10, COMP, and CRP reduced after 4 weeks of
use. (3) Hollstrom & Associates Inc bets our typical, older OA patient who
has trouble walking will appreciate
Not that curcumin IS NOT tasty, but blueberries
may come to mind as being the tastier of the two! Not
a bad thing! Blueberries, too, offer anti-inflammatory benefits. Rich in bioactive substances in addition to
having 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 mediate nuclear receptor activity. (4) Blueberries work
at the cellular level! They slowed the production of
inflammatory factors, particularly 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 difficult. (6) Blueberries are tasty options to add to your nutrition plan for those experiencing the effects of inflammation.
