Tasty Buffalo, NY Anti-Inflammatory Goodies: Blueberries and Curcumin

Buffalo, NY 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. The Novelli Wellness Center appreciates these easy, tasty options to help combat inflammation in addition to the rest of the Buffalo, NY chiropractic treatment plan.

CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE

For more than 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy benefits – including its ability to counter human diseases/conditions like diabetes, cancer, and inflammation - have been documented. A recent study review focused on curcumin’s effectiveness in managing neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your Buffalo, NY chiropractor specifically values curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for managing osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis is not an issue 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) Up against the common treatment of OA – NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin offered a protective effect against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects in an osteoarthritic rat study. One of the multiple benefits described in this study was that arthritic conditions and serum biomarkers TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-10, COMP, and CRP decreased after 4 weeks of use.

BLUEBERRIES’ ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BENEFITS

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 as well as other healthy properties - anti-oxidant, neuroprotective, anti-obesity, anti-cancer blueberries are documented to help treat cancer, lower metabolic syndrome, and protect liver function via their ability to mediate nuclear receptor activity. (4) Blueberries work at the cellular level! They slowed the production of inflammatory factors, specifically TNF, ESR1, AGTR1 and IGF1. (5) Another study recommended daily blueberry eating may decrease 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 choices to add to your nutrition plan for those experiencing the effects of inflammation.
