Fernandina Beach Chiropractic Spinal Care Treatment Plan: Nutritional Tea!

Drink for health? When the chosen drink is tea, it’s quite possible! Skeletal pain arising from aging-related conditions responds well to muscle and joint boosters like those in green tea. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic has nutritional advice like drinking green tea to our Fernandina Beach 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 decided that age rather than the height loss was suggested to be the better method of determining risk of vertebral fracture. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was linked with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a condition known to reduce quality of life. (2) Cartilage is the victim of the inflammatory and degenerative aspects of these diseases. Sarcopenia’s loss of strength and muscle mass requires 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 decreasing inflammatory mediators. (3) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic hopes you might enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea comes in many types. Another recent article writes that knee osteoarthritis patients benefitted from a combination of curcuminoids, collagen and green tea extract which exhibited anti-inflammatory properties. The researchers suggested that natural ingredients provide a rational role in the management of osteoarthritis. (4) Another natural option: spearmint tea! A study of how spearmint teas affected 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 extracted from the woody, perennial herb, rosemary. It is 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) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is on the hunt for some high-rosA spearmint tea to add to the Fernandina Beach chiropractic treatment plan.
