Ashburn patients|Sufferers with inflammatory conditions 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.
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn values these easy, tasty ways
to help combat inflammation by adding these to the rest of the
Ashburn chiropractic treatment plan.
CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE
For more than 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy
benefits – like its ability to counter human
diseases/conditions like diabetes, cancer, and inflammation - have been understood.
A recent review of studies focused
on curcumin’s effectiveness in managing neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your Ashburn
chiropractor particularly values
curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for dealing with
osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis is
not an issue with a clear cure, but curcumin’s
anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties excel in
their therapeutic value for OA management. Researchers particularly
noted the chondroprotective effects curcumin has.
(2) Compared to the common treatment of OA –
NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin had a protective effect
against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant factors
in a study of osteoarthritis rats. One of
the many benefits described in
this study was that arthritic conditions and serum biomarkers
TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-10, COMP, and CRP decreased after 4 weeks of
use. (3) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn knows our typical, older OA patient finds difficulty walking will appreciate
Not that curcumin IS NOT tasty, but blueberries
may come to mind as the tastier choice of the two! Not
a bad thing! Blueberries, too, offer anti-inflammatory benefits. Rich in bioactive substances as well as other 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 slackened the production of
inflammatory factors, particularly TNF, ESR1, AGTR1 and
IGF1. (5) Another study recommended daily blueberry eating may decrease
pain, stiffness, and difficulty performing daily tasks as well as bettering
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 suffering with inflammation.
