Spine & Sports Rehab Center Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of consumption. That’s some history! Curcumin owns it. (Chiropractic delights in its 125-year history!) Curcumin’s history of dietary use in Eastern countries like China and India offers much data to researchers to see just what an influence it has on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is gaining credit for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Spine & Sports Rehab Center continues to study curcumin’s beneficial role in potential inflammation and Baton Rouge back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin has a long history of usage going back 4000 years (1) yet a shorter history of use currently for its ability to control levels of various neurotransmitters in the brain in addition to preventing cell death. Curcumin affects inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Back in 2010 researchers posited that curcumin could be a “future drug of therapy for the treatment of various neurological disorders.” Diabetic neuropathy, tardive dyskinesia, and major depression are a few of those such orders. They called for more clinical studies back then to put curcumin into therapeutic use due to its “neuroprotective action” in diseases like Alzheimer’s, tardive dyskinesia, major depression, epilepsy, and other such neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders. Curcumin’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties may contribute to its neuroprotectiveness. Curcumin’s ability to slow or stop reactive astrocyte expression and thus preventing cell death is advantageous. (3) Your Baton Rouge chiropractor knows the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and values the potential curcumin possesses in addressing cell death and reducing inflammation and thereby reducing Baton Rouge back pain.

CURCUMIN DIET AND SUPPLEMENTATION

What is the optimal way to integrate curcumin for greatest benefit? Diet and/or supplementation. A curcumin rich diet is written to offset diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as decrease inflammation. A new report on curcumin reveals the role curcumin plays in treating neurological diseases (spinal muscular atrophy, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis and more). In order to bring more attention to curcumin’s benefits, the researchers share the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes regarding the use of curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Spine & Sports Rehab Center realizes many Baton Rouge chiropractic patients would like the simpler supplementation route which is quite simple and effective. Spine & Sports Rehab Center will share what is right for you and your Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan.
