West Palm Beach patients|Sufferers with conditions
related to inflammation like osteoarthritis (OA) may
benefit from tasty additions to their daily diet.
Blueberries and curcumin each extend anti-inflammatory benefits that
may well help manage their effects.
Chiropractic Care appreciates these easy, tasty ways
to help combat inflammation in addition to the rest of the
West Palm Beach chiropractic treatment plan.
CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE
For more than 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy
benefits – including its ability to lessen human
diseases/conditions like diabetes, cancer, and inflammation - have been understood.
A recent study review highlighted curcumin’s effectiveness in managing neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your West Palm Beach
chiropractor particularly appreciates
curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for managing
osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis isn’t a condition with a clear cure, but curcumin’s
anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties shine in
their therapeutic value for OA management. Researchers specifically
noted the chondroprotective effects curcumin has.
(2) Up against the common treatment of OA –
NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin had a protective effect
against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant factors
in a study of osteoarthritis rats. One of
the multiple benefits detailed in
this study was that arthritic conditions as well as serum biomarkers
TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-10, COMP, and CRP decreased after 4 weeks of
use. (3) Chiropractic Care knows our typical, older OA patient who

THE ANTI-INFLAMMATORY PROPERTIES OF BLUEBERRIES
Not that curcumin isn’t tasty, but blueberries
may come to mind as the tastier choice of the two! Good thing! Blueberries, too, offer anti-inflammatory benefits. Rich in bioactive substances as well as other healthy properties - anti-oxidant, neuroprotective, anti-obesity,
anti-cancer – blueberries are documented to help treat cancer, reduce
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, particularly TNF, ESR1, AGTR1 and
IGF1. (5) Another study suggested daily blueberry eating may reduce
pain, stiffness, and difficulty performing daily tasks as well as improving
gait may well improve quality of life for knee OA sufferers who
find walking difficult. (6) Blueberries are tasty picks to add to your nutrition plan for those suffering with inflammation.
