Fort Wayne patients|Sufferers with conditions
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 help manage their effects.
Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc appreciates these easy, tasty options
to help combat inflammation in addition to the rest of the
Fort Wayne 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 Fort Wayne
chiropractor particularly 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
noted 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 factors
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) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc knows our typical, older OA patient who

THE ANTI-INFLAMMATORY PROPERTIES OF BLUEBERRIES
Not that curcumin IS NOT tasty, but blueberries
may come to mind as the tastier choice of the two! Good 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, reduce
metabolic syndrome, and protect liver function via their ability to intervene
in nuclear receptor activity. (4) Blueberries function
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 difficult. (6) Blueberries are tasty options to add to your nutrition plan for those suffering with inflammation.
