Buffalo, NY Chiropractic Tip for Osteoporotic Bone Health: Ginger, FLL and Turmeric

Phytomedicine. A new concept? Not really. It’s the system of using plants to address human illness. It is been used most of humanity’s existence, but today we are quite used to pharmacological medicine. Looking to phytomedicine may benefit us all, particularly post-menopausal women and others who suffer with osteoporosis. The Novelli Wellness Center reports on some recent findings about such plant-based therapies including ginger as well as others like turmeric for Buffalo, NY osteoporosis treatment and side benefits of improved bone health and bone regeneration.

OSTEOPOROSIS AND POST-MENOPAUSAL WOMEN: BONE FRACTURES, BMD

Women are very aware of osteoporosis. With DEXA scans and concerns for fracture risk in the news, Buffalo, NY women are reminded to take care of their bones. Osteoporosis is best described as an imbalance between bone formation and bone resorption; both are influenced by nitric oxide. When women get to menopause, estrogen levels decrease which makes their risk of fracture rise. In a recent study, women were treated with a nutraceutical containing Paullinia cupana, Muira puama, ginger, and L-citrulline, known to help fractures heal in rat studies. Nitric oxide was boosted along with other biomarkers like cGMP and calcium deposition. Bone mineral density rose as bone resorption was reduced and calcium deposition was enhanced. (1) The Novelli Wellness Center finds these to be positive outcomes for Buffalo, NY osteoporosis management with chiropractic.

GINGER AND TURMERIC FOR OSTEOPOROTIC BONE HEALTH

The Novelli Wellness Center appreciates this well-designed prospective triple-blind randomized controlled trial. That took a lot to set up, no doubt! Its goal is to gauge the effect of ginger and turmeric on quality of life, body composition, bone mineral density (BMD) and osteoporosis biomarkers in post-menopausal women with osteoporosis. Since ginger and turmeric are pretty inexpensive, this study’s results could really impact the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.

FLL AND CURCUMIN (TURMERIC) FOR BONE PRESERVATION AND REGENERATION

Fructus Ligustri Lucidi (FLL) is an olive family plant used for its antioxidant and anti-aging properties to treat osteoporosis for more than 1000 years. It’s been around a long time! Its bone-preserving properties may come from the effect FLL has on the microecology of the intestine. Intestinal changes – changes to the gut’s microecology – come with aging, and FLL seems to influence that. As an extra effect, cognitive function improved. (3) Additionally, using both curcumin and Fructus Ligustri Lucidi enhanced bone regeneration, positioning it as a hopeful alternative herbal approach to treat and prevent osteoporosis. (4)
