Largo Chiropractic Spinal Care Treatment Plan: Nutritional Tea!

Drink for health? Yes, when the drink is tea! Aging-related skeletal pain responds nicely to muscle and joint boosters like those in green tea. Hollstrom & Associates Inc offers nutritional advice like drinking green tea to our Largo chiropractic patients.

AGING-RELATED SKELETAL, CARTILAGE, AND JOINT DISEASES

With aging come skeletal risks like disc height loss and changes like the two joint and muscle diseases called osteoarthritis and sarcopenia. A new study looked at the interaction of height loss and vertebral fractures in postmenopausal women. The researchers decided that age rather than the height loss was suggested to be the better method of determining vertebral fracture risk. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was linked with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a situation documented to reduce quality of life. (2) Cartilage is the victim of these diseases’ inflammatory and degenerative processes. The loss of strength and muscle mass that accompanies sarcopenia necessitates attention to quantity and quality of skeletal muscle mass which is where where green tea comes into play. Green tea contains catechins that help maintain healthy joints and skeletal muscle by decreasing inflammatory mediators. (3) Hollstrom & Associates Inc hopes you might enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea is available in many forms. An additional new article reports that knee osteoarthritis patients benefitted from a mixture of curcuminoids, collagen and green tea extract which were found to inhibit inflammation. The researchers wrote that natural ingredients provide a rational role in the management of osteoarthritis. (4) Another natural option: spearmint tea! A study of how spearmint teas affected knee osteoarthritis discovered that a commercial spearmint tea improved stiffness and physical disability while a spearmint tea brewed from a high-rosmarinic acid (high-rosA) variety significantly reduced pain. (5) Rosmarinic acid is extracted from the woody, perennial herb, rosemary. it’s a polyphenolic compound with antioxidant properties. Polyphenols are written to be anti-cancer, anti-tumor cell proliferation, anti-apoptosis (cell death), anti-metastasis, and anti-inflammatory. Rosmarinic acid is found in plant species like the mint. (6) Hollstrom & Associates Inc is on the lookout for some high-rosA spearmint tea to enhance the Largo chiropractic treatment plan.
