Minster Chiropractic Spinal Care Treatment Plan: Nutritional Tea!

Drink your way to health? Yes, when the drink is tea! Aging-related skeletal pain responds well to muscle and joint boosters like those in green tea. Minster Chiropractic Center presents nutritional advice like drinking green tea to our Minster chiropractic patients.

AGING-RELATED SKELETAL, CARTILAGE, AND JOINT DISEASES

Skeletal risks like disc height loss and changes like the two joint and muscle diseases called osteoarthritis and sarcopenia come with aging. A recent 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 superior method of determining risk of vertebral fracture. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was associated with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a situation known to reduce 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 which is where where green tea comes into play. Green tea has catechins that foster healthy joints and skeletal muscle by decreasing inflammatory mediators. (3) Minster Chiropractic Center believes you might enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea is available in a variety of forms. An additional recent article writes that knee osteoarthritis patients benefitted from a mixture of curcuminoids, collagen and green tea extract which were found to inhibit inflammation. The researchers suggested that natural ingredients have a rational role in the care of osteoarthritis. (4) Another natural option: spearmint tea! A report of how spearmint teas influenced 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’s 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) Minster Chiropractic Center is on the lookout for some high-rosA spearmint tea to enhance the Minster chiropractic treatment plan.
