Pflugerville patients|Sufferers with inflammatory conditions like osteoarthritis (OA) may
benefit from tasty additions to their daily diet.
Blueberries and curcumin each extend anti-inflammatory benefits that
may well assist in the management of their effects.
Pflugerville Wellness Center values these simple, tasty options
to help combat inflammation in addition to the rest of the
Pflugerville 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 managing neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your Pflugerville
chiropractor particularly values
curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for managing
osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis is
not an issue with a sure cure, but curcumin’s
anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties stand out in
their therapeutic value for OA management. Researchers particularly
noted the chondroprotective effects curcumin offers.
(2) Compared to the common treatment of OA –
NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin offered a protective effect
against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
in an osteoarthritic rat study. One of
the several benefits explained 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) Pflugerville Wellness Center knows our typical, older OA patient who
has trouble walking will value
Not that curcumin IS NOT tasty, but blueberries
may come to mind as being the tastier of the two! Good thing! Blueberries, too, have 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 mediate 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 suggested daily blueberry eating may reduce
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 options to add to your nutrition plan for those experiencing the effects of inflammation.
