Fort Wayne Chiropractic Spinal Care Treatment Plan: Nutritional Tea!11/24/2020Drink your way to health? Yes, when the drink is tea! Skeletal pain arising from aging-related conditions responds nicely to muscle and joint boosters like those in green tea. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc has nutritional advice like drinking green tea to our Fort Wayne 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 new study looked at 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 sufferer 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. This is where green tea comes into play. Green tea has catechins that foster healthy joints and skeletal muscle by reducing inflammatory mediators. (3) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc believes you may enjoy some beneficial green tea! NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS Green tea is available in many types. Another recent article writes that knee osteoarthritis patients benefitted from a mixture of curcuminoids, collagen and green tea extract which exhibited anti-inflammatory properties. The researchers wrote that natural ingredients provide a rational role in the care of osteoarthritis. (4) Another natural option: spearmint tea! A report of how spearmint teas influenced knee osteoarthritis found that a commercial spearmint tea bettered stiffness and physical disability while a spearmint tea brewed from a high-rosmarinic acid (high-rosA) variety significantly decreased pain. (5) Rosmarinic acid is extracted from the woody, perennial herb, rosemary. it’s a polyphenolic compound with antioxidant properties. Polyphenols are reported 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) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is on the hunt for some high-rosA spearmint tea to add to the Fort Wayne chiropractic treatment plan.
