CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE
For over 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy
benefits – like its ability to lessen human
diseases/conditions like diabetes, cancer, and inflammation - have been understood.
A new study review highlighted curcumin’s effectiveness in managing neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your Oxford
chiropractor specifically values
curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for dealing with
osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis isn’t a condition with a clear cure, but curcumin’s
anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties excel in
their therapeutic value for OA management. Researchers specifically
described the chondroprotective effects curcumin has.
(2) Compared to the common treatment of OA –
NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin offered a protective effect
against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
in a study of osteoarthritis rats. One of
the several benefits described in
this study was that arthritic conditions as well as serum biomarkers
TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-10, COMP, and CRP reduced after 4 weeks of
use. (3) Satterwhite Chiropractic bets our typical, older OA patient who
has trouble walking will appreciate
Not that curcumin isn’t tasty, but blueberries
may come to mind as being the tastier of the two! Good thing! Blueberries, too, offer anti-inflammatory positive
attributes. Rich in bioactive substances in addition to
having 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 intervene
in nuclear receptor activity. (4) Blueberries function
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 decrease
pain, stiffness, and difficulty doing 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 choices to add to your nutrition plan for those experiencing the effects of inflammation.
