related to inflammation like osteoarthritis (OA) may

Blueberries and curcumin each extend anti-inflammatory benefits that
may well assist in the management of their effects.
Minster Chiropractic Center appreciates these simple, tasty options
to help combat inflammation in addition to the rest of the
Minster 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 understood.
A new review of studies highlighted curcumin’s effectiveness in treating neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your Minster
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 offers.
(2) Compared to the usual treatment of OA –
NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin offered a protective effect
against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant factors
in an osteoarthritic rat study. One of
the several 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) Minster Chiropractic Center bets our typical, older OA patient finds difficulty walking will appreciate
THE ANTI-INFLAMMATORY PROPERTIES OF BLUEBERRIES
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 benefits. 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, specifically 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 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.
