Lynchburg Chiropractic Spinal Care Treatment Plan: Nutritional Tea!

Drink for 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. Palmer Chiropractic Center has nutritional tips like drinking green tea to our Lynchburg 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 looked at how height loss and vertebral fractures in postmenopausal women were linked. The researchers concluded that age rather than the height loss was suggested to be the better method of determining vertebral fracture risk. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was associated with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a condition documented to decrease quality of life. (2) Cartilage is the victim of the inflammatory and degenerative aspects of these diseases. The loss of strength and muscle mass that accompanies sarcopenia requires attention to quantity and quality of skeletal muscle mass. This is where green tea comes into play. Green tea has catechins that help maintain healthy joints and skeletal muscle by decreasing inflammatory mediators. (3) Palmer Chiropractic Center hopes you may enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea comes in a variety of forms. An additional new article writes that knee osteoarthritis patients benefitted from a mixture of curcuminoids, collagen and green tea extract which were shown 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 improved stiffness and physical disability while a spearmint tea brewed from a high-rosmarinic acid (high-rosA) variety significantly decreased 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) Palmer Chiropractic Center is on the hunt for some high-rosA spearmint tea to add to the Lynchburg chiropractic treatment plan.
