benefit from some interesting additions to their daily diet.
Blueberries and curcumin each offer anti-inflammatory benefits that
may well assist in the management of their effects.
Spine & Sports Rehab Center appreciates these easy, tasty ways
to help combat inflammation by adding these to the rest of the
Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan.
CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE
For more than 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy
benefits – including its ability to counter human
diseases/conditions like diabetes, cancer, and inflammation - have been documented.
A recent review of studies focused
on curcumin’s effectiveness in managing neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your Baton Rouge
chiropractor specifically values
curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for dealing with
osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis is
not an issue with a clear cure, but curcumin’s
anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties shine 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 effects
in a study of osteoarthritis rats. One of
the many 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) Spine & Sports Rehab Center knows our typical, older OA patient finds difficulty walking will value
Not that curcumin isn’t 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 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, particularly TNF, ESR1, AGTR1 and
IGF1. (5) Another study recommended daily blueberry eating may decrease
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.
