Toronto patients|Sufferers with inflammatory conditions like osteoarthritis (OA) may
benefit from tasty additions to their daily diet.
Blueberries and curcumin each extend anti-inflammatory benefits that
may well assist in the management of their effects.
Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre values these simple, tasty options
to help combat inflammation in addition to the rest of the
Toronto chiropractic treatment plan.
CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE
For over 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy
benefits – including its ability to lessen human
diseases/conditions like diabetes, cancer, and inflammation - have been documented.
A new study review highlighted curcumin’s effectiveness in treating neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your Toronto
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 specifically
described the chondroprotective effects curcumin has.
(2) Up against the usual treatment of OA –
NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin had a protective effect
against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
in a study of osteoarthritis rats. One of
the multiple benefits described 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) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre knows our typical, older OA patient who
has trouble walking will appreciate
Not that curcumin IS NOT 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 in addition to
having healthy properties - anti-oxidant, neuroprotective, anti-obesity,
anti-cancer – blueberries are reported 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 slowed the production of
inflammatory factors, particularly TNF, ESR1, AGTR1 and
IGF1. (5) Another study suggested daily blueberry eating may decrease
pain, stiffness, and difficulty performing daily tasks as well as improving
gait may well improve quality of life for knee OA sufferers who
find walking troublesome. (6) Blueberries are tasty choices to add to your nutrition plan for those experiencing the effects of inflammation.
