Baton Rouge Chiropractic Spinal Care Treatment Plan: Nutritional Tea!

Drink your way to health? When the chosen drink is tea, it’s quite possible! Skeletal pain arising from aging-related conditions responds nicely to muscle and joint boosters like those in green tea. Spine & Sports Rehab Center has nutritional tips like drinking green tea to our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients.

AGING-RELATED SKELETAL, CARTILAGE, AND JOINT DISEASES

With aging come skeletal risks like disc height loss and changes like the two joint and muscle diseases called osteoarthritis and sarcopenia. A recent study described how height loss and vertebral fractures in postmenopausal women were linked. The researchers decided that age rather than the height loss was suggested to be the superior way to determine vertebral fracture risk. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was associated with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a condition known to decrease quality of life. (2) Cartilage is the victim of the inflammatory and degenerative aspects of these diseases. The loss of strength and muscle mass that accompanies sarcopenia requires 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) Spine & Sports Rehab Center believes you may enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea comes in many forms. An additional new article writes that knee osteoarthritis patients benefitted from a mixture of curcuminoids, collagen and green tea extract which exhibited anti-inflammatory properties. The researchers suggested that natural ingredients have a rational role in the management of osteoarthritis. (4) Another natural option: spearmint tea! A report of how spearmint teas affected knee osteoarthritis discovered that a commercial spearmint tea bettered stiffness and physical disability while a spearmint tea brewed from a high-rosmarinic acid (high-rosA) variety significantly reduced pain. (5) Rosmarinic acid is extracted from the woody, perennial herb, rosemary. it’s a polyphenolic compound with antioxidant properties. Polyphenols are reported 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) Spine & Sports Rehab Center is on the lookout for some high-rosA spearmint tea to enhance the Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan.
