Colorado Springs Chiropractic Spinal Care Treatment Plan: Nutritional Tea!

Drink your way to health? Yes, when the drink is tea! Skeletal pain arising from aging-related conditions responds nicely to muscle and joint boosters like those in green tea. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR presents nutritional tips like drinking green tea to our Colorado Springs chiropractic patients.

AGING-RELATED SKELETAL, CARTILAGE, AND JOINT DISEASES

With aging come skeletal risks like disc height loss and changes like the two joint and muscle diseases called osteoarthritis and sarcopenia. A new study looked at the interaction of height loss and vertebral fractures in postmenopausal women. The researchers decided that age rather than the height loss was suggested to be the superior way to determine risk of vertebral fracture. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was linked with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a situation documented to reduce quality of life. (2) Cartilage is the victim of the inflammatory and degenerative aspects of these diseases. Sarcopenia’s loss of strength and muscle mass necessitates attention to quantity and quality of skeletal muscle mass. This is where green tea comes into play. Green tea has catechins that foster healthy joints and skeletal muscle by decreasing inflammatory mediators. (3) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR hopes you might enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea comes in a variety of forms. An additional new article reports that knee osteoarthritis patients benefitted from a mixture of curcuminoids, collagen and green tea extract which were shown to inhibit inflammation. 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 discovered that a commercial spearmint tea improved stiffness and physical disability while a spearmint tea brewed from a high-rosmarinic acid (high-rosA) variety significantly reduced pain. (5) Rosmarinic acid is taken from the woody, perennial herb, rosemary. It is a polyphenolic compound with antioxidant properties. Polyphenols are written 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) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is on the hunt for some high-rosA spearmint tea to add to the Colorado Springs chiropractic treatment plan.
