Disc Centers Of America appreciates these easy, tasty options

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. (3) Disc Centers Of America knows our typical, older OA patient finds difficulty walking will value
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.
