West Palm Beach Chiropractic Spinal Care Treatment Plan: Nutritional Tea!

Drink your way to health? Yes, when the drink is tea! Aging-related skeletal pain responds well to muscle and joint boosters like those in green tea. Chiropractic Care presents nutritional tips like drinking green tea to our West Palm 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 new study looked at how height loss and vertebral fractures in postmenopausal women were linked. The researchers concluded that age rather than the height loss was suggested to be the better way to determine risk of vertebral fracture. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was associated with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a situation documented to decrease quality of life. (2) Cartilage is the sufferer of these diseases’ inflammatory and degenerative processes. 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 contains catechins that foster healthy joints and skeletal muscle by decreasing inflammatory mediators. (3) Chiropractic Care hopes you may enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea is available in many types. An additional recent article reports 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 care of osteoarthritis. (4) Another natural option: spearmint tea! A report of how spearmint teas influenced knee osteoarthritis found 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’s a polyphenolic compound with antioxidant properties. Polyphenols are reported 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) Chiropractic Care is on the lookout for some high-rosA spearmint tea to add to the West Palm Beach chiropractic treatment plan.
