Fernandina Beach patients|Sufferers with inflammatory conditions like osteoarthritis (OA) may
benefit from tasty additions to their daily diet.
Blueberries and curcumin each offer anti-inflammatory benefits that
may well help manage their effects.
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic values these simple, tasty options
to help combat inflammation in addition to the rest of the
Fernandina Beach chiropractic treatment plan.
CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE
For more than 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy
benefits – like its ability to counter 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 Fernandina Beach
chiropractor specifically values
curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for dealing with
osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis isn’t a condition with a clear cure, but curcumin’s
anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties stand out in
their therapeutic value for OA management. Researchers specifically
noted 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 a study of osteoarthritis rats. One of
the multiple benefits explained 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) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic bets our typical, older OA patient who

Not that curcumin isn’t tasty, but blueberries
may come to mind as being the tastier of the two! Good thing! Blueberries, too, offer anti-inflammatory positive
attributes. Rich in bioactive substances in addition to
having 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 work
at the cellular level! They slowed the production of
inflammatory factors, particularly TNF, ESR1, AGTR1 and
IGF1. (5) Another study suggested daily blueberry eating may reduce
pain, stiffness, and difficulty doing 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 picks to add to your nutrition plan for those suffering with inflammation.
