Vancouver Chiropractic Spinal Care Treatment Plan: Nutritional Tea!

Drink your way to health? Yes, when the drink is tea! Skeletal pain arising from aging-related conditions responds nicely to muscle and joint boosters like those in green tea. Vancouver Disc Centers has nutritional tips like drinking green tea to our Vancouver 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 new study described the interaction of height loss and vertebral fractures in postmenopausal women. The researchers concluded that age rather than the height loss was suggested to be the better way to determine risk of vertebral fracture. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was linked with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a situation known to decrease quality of life. (2) Cartilage is the victim of these diseases’ inflammatory and degenerative processes. The loss of strength and muscle mass that accompanies sarcopenia necessitates attention to quantity and quality of skeletal muscle mass. This is where green tea comes into play. Green tea has catechins that help maintain healthy joints and skeletal muscle by reducing inflammatory mediators. (3) Vancouver Disc Centers believes you may enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea comes in a variety of forms. Another new article writes that knee osteoarthritis patients were helped by a mixture of curcuminoids, collagen and green tea extract which were found to inhibit inflammation. The researchers suggested that natural ingredients provide a rational role in the care 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 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) Vancouver Disc Centers is on the lookout for some high-rosA spearmint tea to enhance the Vancouver chiropractic treatment plan.
