related to inflammation like osteoarthritis (OA) may
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.
Vancouver Disc Centers appreciates these easy, tasty ways
to help combat inflammation by adding these to the rest of the
Vancouver chiropractic treatment plan.
CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE
For over 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy
benefits – like its ability to lessen human
diseases/conditions like diabetes, cancer, and inflammation - have been documented.
A recent review of studies highlighted curcumin’s effectiveness in managing neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your Vancouver
chiropractor specifically appreciates
curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for managing
osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis isn’t an issue with a sure 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 usual treatment of OA –
NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin offered a protective effect
against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects
in an osteoarthritic rat study. One of
the multiple benefits described in
this study was that arthritic conditions and serum biomarkers
TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-10, COMP, and CRP reduced after 4 weeks of
use. (3) Vancouver Disc Centers bets our typical, older OA patient who
has trouble walking will appreciate
Not that curcumin isn’t tasty, but blueberries
may come to mind as the tastier choice of the two! Not
a bad thing! Blueberries, too, have anti-inflammatory positive
attributes. Rich in bioactive substances in addition to
having 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 reduce
pain, stiffness, and difficulty performing daily tasks as well as improving
gait may well better quality of life for knee OA sufferers who
find walking difficult. (6) Blueberries are tasty picks to add to your nutrition plan for those experiencing the effects of inflammation.
