may well help manage their effects.
Layden Chiropractic appreciates these simple, tasty options
to help combat inflammation in addition to the rest of the
Plainville 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 highlighted curcumin’s effectiveness in managing neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your Plainville
chiropractor particularly values
curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for dealing with
osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis isn’t 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 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 an osteoarthritic rat study. One of
the many benefits explained 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) Layden Chiropractic bets our typical, older OA patient who
has trouble walking will appreciate
THE ANTI-INFLAMMATORY PROPERTIES OF BLUEBERRIES
Not that curcumin IS NOT tasty, but blueberries
may come to mind as the tastier choice of the two! Good thing! Blueberries, too, have anti-inflammatory positive
attributes. Rich in bioactive substances in addition to
having healthy properties - anti-oxidant, neuroprotective, anti-obesity,
anti-cancer – blueberries are reported 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 doing daily tasks as well as improving
gait may well better quality of life for knee OA sufferers who
find walking troublesome. (6) Blueberries are tasty choices to add to your nutrition plan for those suffering with inflammation.
