We all would enjoy not having to deal with aging and bone loss and osteoarthritis, but truth be told: many of us will not. New information that tart cherries may help prevent bone loss and osteoarthritis and improve bone health is welcome news to The Novelli Wellness Center. They may be a tasty way for our Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients to do what they can to keep their bones healthy!

BONE LOSS AND OSTEOARTHRITIS

Osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease, often leads to disability. There is no cure nor effective treatment yet found to stop it explains one set of researchers. NSAIDs and analgesics help with pain relief but not with the course of osteoarthritis. Taking drugs sometimes brings about some adverse side effects for some patients over time which guided a set of researchers to see what else may help. In their analysis of peer-reviewed articles, they wrote that nutrition can improve osteoarthritis symptoms. The Novelli Wellness Center has seen this often in its Buffalo, NY chiropractic practice! As these researchers found, glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate “robustly” delay the progression of knee osteoarthritis. While diet changes to correct lipid and cholesterol numbers, enhance vitamin levels and address overweight levels are valuable in osteoarthritis care, including these two nutrients is, too.  (1) The Novelli Wellness Center has more information on them both. 

CONSUMING TART CHERRIES

A likely tasty way to supplement the diet for spine care is consuming tart cherries. In this springtime in the US that finds blooming cherry trees everywhere, it is the perfect time for this new information about the benefits of cherries. But how much of a good thing like tart cherries is healthy and beneficial? Recently, researchers explain that tart cherry may be a natural alternative to drug therapy to stop bone loss in diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and others. They explain that tart cherry shielded bone structure from inflammation-induced bone loss and (unlike infliximab, a common drug) moderately improved the decline in bone stiffness. (2) That’s advantageous! The researchers suggested that tart cherry may help avoid future fragility fractures due to highly chronic inflammation. (2) Further, another set of researchers describe how the immune and endocrine systems have a role in age-related bone loss. Anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and prebiotic foods like tart cherries can possibly offset this occurrence. In assessing 5% and 10% Montmorency tart cherry intake, researchers found significantly greater bone thickness in patients receiving the cherry than the control group patients. They concluded that cherry supplementation (5% and 10%) increased bone mineral density down to the trabecular and cortical bone microarchitecture! (3) All from cherries! The Novelli Wellness Center appreciates this simple way to improve bone and is certain our Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients will, too!
