Plainville Chiropractic Spinal Care Treatment Plan: Nutritional Tea!

Drink your way to health? Yes, when the drink is tea! Aging-related skeletal pain responds well to muscle and joint boosters like those in green tea. Layden Chiropractic presents nutritional advice like drinking green tea to our Plainville chiropractic patients.

AGING-RELATED SKELETAL, CARTILAGE, AND JOINT DISEASES

Skeletal risks like disc height loss and changes like the two joint and muscle diseases called osteoarthritis and sarcopenia come with aging. A recent 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 risk of vertebral fracture. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was linked with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a condition documented to decrease quality of life. (2) Cartilage is the sufferer of the inflammatory and degenerative aspects of these diseases. Sarcopenia’s loss of strength and muscle mass necessitates attention to quantity and quality of skeletal muscle mass. This is where green tea comes into play. Green tea contains catechins that help maintain healthy joints and skeletal muscle by reducing inflammatory mediators. (3) Layden Chiropractic believes you may enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea comes in many forms. Another recent article writes that knee osteoarthritis patients were helped by a combination of curcuminoids, collagen and green tea extract which were shown to inhibit inflammation. The researchers wrote that natural ingredients provide a rational role in the care of osteoarthritis. (4) Another natural option: spearmint tea! A study of how spearmint teas influenced knee osteoarthritis found that a commercial spearmint tea bettered stiffness and physical disability while a spearmint tea brewed from a high-rosmarinic acid (high-rosA) variety significantly decreased pain. (5) Rosmarinic acid is taken from the woody, perennial herb, rosemary. It is 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) Layden Chiropractic is on the hunt for some high-rosA spearmint tea to enhance the Plainville chiropractic treatment plan.
